Josh and Alissa's intimate Big Sur Elopement // California coast elopement photographer

I met Josh and Alissa on a foggy Sunday afternoon on the Big Sur coast. We met on the cliffs and I showed them all my favorite spots. I made Alissa a bouquet from our local farmers market and she wore her favorite leather jacket. I packed their champagne in my backpack and they cuddled and laughed as we walked from the cliffs to the ocean. Alissa packed her wedding shoes but quickly changed into her Birkenstock’s. Alissa and Josh are locals to our coast and scampered through the rocky terrain like nobodies business.

Josh and Alissa met in third grade! Josh is in a local metal band and Alissa calls her cat Morris the second love of her life. Their intimate elopement on the Big Sur coast was such a pleasure to be a part of! I love helping couples plan what a perfect day to them looks like. From strenuous hikes to cliff side picnics I can help guide you and assist with the whole planning process. Often for elopements I am the one that gets to zip up a dress and choose the perfect cliff for a ceremony. I’m a firm believer that whether you decide to elope or have a huge ceremony it should be about YOU, and your love for each other. If you enjoy adventure, have a relaxed vibe and enjoy lots of ocean cliffs we may be a good fit. Growing up on the Central Coast, I’ve hiked and explored Big Sur since I can remember, I would love to show you my local spots.
