Avenue of the Giants Wedding, Redwoods State Park Elopement Photographer

Avenue of the Giants Elopement Wedding in the Redwoods State Park
Redwoods State Park Wedding Photographer

Samantha and Josh eloped in the Redwoods State Park. While there are many destinations to view the epic redwoods, they chose the Avenue of the Giants, which is located in northern California near Humboldt. This destination contains some of the largest and tallest trees in the world. I have photographed other weddings in the Redwoods, like the Big Sur Elopement, but this was quite different.

When Josh and Sam called me, they requested an adventure photo elopement, which was something different than I’ve done. I was excited to venture with their intimate group of friends and family.

They opted for a first look before they exchanged vows in a private ceremony. We hiked a few trails and captured some images in the woods before the official event. However, we had no location yet picked out for the ceremony. We were just going to hike and wait until we were visually inspired. That’s kind of how I work anyway many times is waiting for the good light, atmosphere, and the scene to work. I’m a feeler.

As we made our way along the trail, we saw a few people along the trail just sitting and enjoying the views of the big trees. Some were even meditating. It is quite spectacular. When we finally found our location, which was epic, the ceremony begun almost immediately. The bride’s parents were along and a few friends. We had the forest all to ourselves.

After the ceremony, they celebrated, getting emotional and sharing long hugs. We left back on the trail, taking some photos before concluding our time with Josh and Sam. If anyone is interested in an Avenue of the Giants wedding ceremony or elopement, this destination has so many beautiful locations and landscape opportunties.

Congratulations to Josh and Samantha.
