Megan and Trae are from Georgia and came all the way here to California for their special day, that is, their misty-day elopement on the Big Sur cliffline! Definitely one of my favorite shoots because of how naturally lovely and organic it all was. Everything was SUCH a delight to capture. I’m so happy to have been their local Big Sur elopement photographer! From portrait sessions on some really fun hiking trails in the woods, to dinner in downtown Carmel- and of course, their elopement!
Getting Ready For Their Misty Elopement
These two got ready for their elopement in Big Sur at the Tickled Pink Inn. It’s a super enchanting luxury hotel in Carmel Highlands that overlooks the Big Sur coastline. Very romantic and pretty! No wonder it’s rated one of the best hotels in the area. You can overlook the picturesque coastline along Highway 1 from your window! It really added that background lux element to Megan and Trae’s getting ready photos that I’m all about as a Big Sur elopement photographer. I especially loved Megan’s dress!
Playtime In A White Dress
While it can be tricky at times to “act natural” when you know a camera is on you, that was never an issue for Megan and Trae. Being together with the one you love and truly enjoying your time together will always shine through gorgeously in photographs. That’s my Big Sur elopement photographer promise! I’m honored to have my couples’ trust.
Understandably so, Megan didn’t wanna get her dress too dirty but as she started having more fun, she was as carefree as can be and embracing it wholeheartedly! After all, what’s a little dirt, y’know? Capturing her and Trae running through the sand and smiling, it was all very organic and sweet! A memory I smile thinking back on was when we were adventuring through some forest trails. The path became narrow and Trae sprung into action guiding Megan through so she wouldn’t fall over- but then he ended up falling over himself! Silly occurences like these always fill me up.
The Big Sur Elopement Finale
Once we got to the prime real estate for their Big Sur sunset elopement, it felt truly full-circle and really wholesome. Their officiant to this new chapter in the love story was the amazing Brian Borgia. He’s done great work for 10+ years presiding over wedding ceremonies. And Megan’s flowers were by Fionna Floral! You can always count on Sara and Jenny, the lovely ladies behind the brand, to arrange a gorgeous and personalized bouquet for your elopement.
