It was the most beautiful day for Emilia + Shark at this downtown Santa Monica elopement! First off, we walked around the city looking for cute little areas to take some of their portraits.

Had the best time at this Glamis Sand Dunes engagement session! Jake + Kelsey are friends of mine and we were originally supposed to shoot in Joshua Tree but when the traffic said 4 hours to get there–we changed plans! We drove about two hours out to the Glamis sand dunes and had the whole area to ourselves!

When Kristin reached out to me to shoot their small Escondido backyard elopement, I was stoked! I had never shot a backyard elopement before and could not wait to create unforgettable memories for them. They had to postpone their elopement due to Covid-19 and we were all happy to finally be there for them!
