Nate and Harper eloped in Big Sur, California at the Big Sur lodge. With their son along, they adventured together for photos along the trails and beaches Big sur provided. Traveling from out of state, we met together before their elopement and hit up some of the areas I had scouted out before arriving. I came early and hiked some new terrain for me and for future couples. Crazy side story, but while on the trail, I ran into a Tahoe wedding couple I had photographed last year. Small world.
After exploring, we hit the trails for a little time before the ceremony, drank lots of water, snacked on veggies along the way, and enjoyed the company of their son who entertained us. We headed to Big Sur lodge for their elopement ceremony where they planned for a woodsy backdrop. Emotions were felt that made their ceremony more than just a simple exchange of vows. After finishing up, we headed to Pfieffer beach State Park for sunset photos to wrap up their experience together. Here are some of the images from their elopement day. Congratulations to the both of them.
