Helen and Mark’s wedding was a lovely celebration to remember forever! They were married by dear friends at Mark’s work, the Salvation Army church. The reception was at the historic El Paseo restaurant. It was a beautiful fall wedding and I’m so lucky I got to photograph these two love birds and friends! Thank you Helen and Mark, and Congratulations on being married!

Jenn and Travis’ magical sunset elopement on the Ellwood bluffs near Santa Barbara Ca. It was my honor and pleasure to capture the love and union that was solidified on this wonderful day! Thank you Jenn and Travis for choosing me, I hope you enjoy these photo memories for a lifetime.


Thank you Father Jerry for the beautiful ceremony and Hook and Press for the gorgeous donuts.

There are many beautiful places to Elope in Santa Barbara, Ca. and the surrounding areas. The iconic Santa Barbara Courthouse is a favorite for destination weddings, but for those who prefer nature to architecture for your vows, consider eloping in Ellwood! The Ellwood bluffs are for the couple who wants variety in their elopement photographs, from green forest to blue ocean to orange sunset skies, this area delivers for pretty backdrops!

For your elopement photos, we start on a walk into the canopy of eucalyptus groves and use the lush green backdrop to pose. Then we can walk on up to the bluffs overlooking the stunning Santa Barbara Coastline. Sunset is a great time to elope here, and take advantage of the stunning view!

Jenn and Travis made a smart stop at Hook and Press to grab some gourmet donuts that sure do make for a pretty picture! Officiating the ceremony was Father Jerry, a local favorite minister who performs beautiful ceremonies with just the right amount of reverence and levity for your special day.
