J and M’s intimate Lake Como, Italy wedding week at Relais Villa Vittoria on a Tuesday in June was a culmination of a beautiful journey that began during the pandemic. Their love story began during the pandemic when they met on Hinge. M initially hesitated to share her phone number, but their connection blossomed, and their bond grew stronger. The magical day of their engagement took place at Disneyland (a place M cherishes being a HUGE Disney fan), where J surprised M with a proposal in front of Snow White’s Grotto, creating a fairy tale moment.

Hold onto your hats, because B and M just redefined sunrise elopement goals in the most epic way possible!
Imagine this: getting ready in the dark before having your first look by the light from the hotel windows. The sun, still rubbing the sleep from its eyes (and we were too!), witnessed B and M exchanging vows at the front of the sailboat off the dazzling shores of Key West. As the sunbeams danced on the water, these two sealed the deal and then dove face-first (literally!) into the sweetest cake I’ve ever seen on a boat. And the adventure didn’t stop there! B surprised M with a moped – the key to unlocking a day of true exploration and their awesome ride to the Hemingway House.

Europe is innately stunning and brimming with things to experience—what if your stay could be an extension of that experience? Reflecting the history of where you are, providing a retreat from the world, and can make something simple– like waking up in the morning– a lifelong memory. When you picture your elopement are you in a glass igloo in Finland or a private castle in Scotland? Or kicking back at a windmill in the Dutch countryside? OR orrr diving into the Mediterranean Sea first thing in the morning? If you can’t choose then don’t fret! I’ve compiled a list that has all of that and MORE. Stays where there’s plenty of room for your loved ones to come along on the adventure and out of this world locations where the scenery can’t be beat.

Step into a time machine, folks, because M + C’s session was a retro blast in the heart of the desert! Picture this: a quirky outdoor art museum becomes the backdrop for a love story that’s straight out of a vintage postcard. These two rocked the scene with their throwback style and killer attitudes. Amidst the eclectic sculptures and eye-popping installations, they were like modern-day art themselves, adding their unique brushstrokes to the canvas of desert nostalgia. From groovy poses to laughter that echoed through the artistic corridors, they turned the museum into a playground of love. It’s like they were channeling the spirit of the past while spinning their own love tale. Move over, art – these two just stole the show!

Year 2 celebrating J + E’s wedding anniversary! It is such an honor to capture milestones in couples relationships, even more so of to be trusted to do it year after year.
The tradition of anniversary photos started when E reached out in the summer of 2021 before they came down on vacation to celebrate their marriage. We did their photos on the beach and they cheered Corona beers to their first year (they got married during the pandemic so it was only fitting!!).
