cambry + Dylan
On a chilly February afternoon, Cambry and Dylan said their vows underneath the beautiful peaks of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. The pair chose February for their elopement so that they could witness the incredible natural phenomenon called the Firefall at Yosemite's Horsetail Fall. This event only happens once yearly when the sun hits the water coming over the falls and it appears to be aflame.
We even got a light dusting of snow just as we were wrapping up, and Cambry and Dylan danced together among the snowflakes. It was an absolutely magical day.
ellen + nick
Ellen and Nick were drawn to the earthy colors of the desert and the funky outlines of the trees, and knew Joshua Tree National Park was the perfect place for them to tie the knot.
I had an amazing time helping Ellen plan her special day and with her elopement package I included a gorgeous bouquet and coordinating boutonniere in her favorite color palette, along with a custom-made denim jacket from a small business in Orange County.
We chased the sun together, I got stuck on a cactus, and we made magic in the glowing desert light. It truly was a day to remember.
mareah + ben
These two are just the cutest. They met at a dance class in San Diego and felt the vibes from the first time they were paired up together.
We spent the day exploring the sleepy town of Avalon and ended the day on a cliff overlooking the harbor, with the dreamiest light pouring over the hillside. Mareah and Ben performed a beautiful unity ceremony with two candles to symbolize the joining of their lives together.

"I found Lindsay in a Facebook group when I was looking for an elopement photographer for my special day. I had talked to a few other photographers on the phone but when I talked to Lindsay we just seemed to click and I knew right away that I wanted to hire her.
She exceeded my expectations right from the beginning. She helped put together an itinerary for the day and was such a pleasant person to be around. The photos came back quickly and are so gorgeous! My husband and I are so happy with her service and would highly recommend her to family and friends." -Susanne
jena + rob
Shark Harbor, Catalina Island
This gorgeous duo met at a Kenny Chesney concert, where Rob told Jena (after a few shots of whiskey) that she was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. It must have worked because these two are head over heels for each other!
This elopement was really one for the books! I climbed in the back of a truck with my florist friend and we made our way across the backcountry of Catalina Island to the wildest and most spectacular cliff view location. After braving the heights for some stunning shots, we headed down to the completely empty beach for a vow exchange, cake and dinner. It was the perfect day full of laughs, adventure and inspiring natural beauty.
tessa + marshall
Historic Orange County Courthouse
I've know this stunning couple for years. They were actually one of my very first clients when I first started my photography business.
Tessa and Marshall are two of the chillest and most down to earth people I know, so when they asked me to shoot their elopement at the historic Orange County courthouse, I knew it was going to be a fun day. We got some hilarious family photos as well as some stunning editorial shots with the incredible architecture of the courthouse as our backdrop.
When it came time for me to plan my special day, I knew I didn't want a traditional wedding. My husband and I had an intimate celebration at the raddest venue, the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, and invited our closest friends and family to party with us all weekend!
Now that I'm a photographer, I love helping couples like you plan an elopement day that perfectly encapsulates YOUR unique love and personalities. Do you want to say your hand-written vows amid the tranquil valleys and peaks of Yosemite National Park? Let me grab my hiking boots and let's go!

Lindsay is just fantastic! We did our elopement with her in Newport Beach, and we loved how the pictures turned out! She's super sweet and will make you feel comfortable during the session so you actually have fun doing it! That is definitely something that you will see reflected in the pictures later.
She's a great artist, very professional, very easy to work with, a great communicator, and I highly recommend booking her for your next photo session or for your California elopement.
Lindsay did an amazing job with our family photos. She not only has great communication, she also made it feel like we've known each other for a long time.
She was super patient with the kids and recommended a fantastic location! Overall, we had a great experience and have beautiful photos!
We had the most wonderful experience eloping on Catalina Island. Thanks to Lindsay and the amazing work she does, both behind and in front of the lens, it was an absolutely joyful day that we can remember forever through her beautiful photos! She definitely goes above and beyond to make the occasion special, like setting up a beautiful picnic for my husband and I so that we could relax and spend some one-on-one time together on our special day.
She was even prepared after a bird decided to drop a mess from a tree above during post ceremony pics on my husband's shirt (lol), removing the spots completely so they did not show for the remaining pictures. Her personality leaves you feeling as if you've known her forever. We are so thankful for her!
