Vasquez Rocks Elopement | Destination Elopement Photographer | California Elopement Photographer

April 30, 2019

Mel + Pearl had the most perfect, intimate Vasquez Rocks elopement surrounded by their family!!! This elopement was truly one for the books! I swear these two had me giggling all morning long! We started at sunrise and my second shooter and I drove to their airbnb to start the morning off with getting ready photos. One of the reasons why I love elopements so much is how intimate they are. I feel like I truly get to see the couple and their friends and family in THEIR element. I sat around with them while they all ate breakfast just chatting the morning away just like any other day (ugh so cool). They all casually started getting ready while I was grabbing shots of their cute little airbnb! I was so obsessed with this place! Once getting ready shots were all done, we head out to the park where we found the most perfect place for their backdrop. Another favorite part about elopements, I GET TO BE APART OF CHOOSING THE EXACT LOCATION SPOT THAT IS BEST FOR LIGHTING (ugh this fills my soul). This makes all the difference in the world when it comes to amazing light so I was really really happy about this!!!

We were all laughing and crying during their ceremony and it was such a magical moment shared with all Mel and Pearl’s closest family and friends. These two are so cute and so much fun! During their bridals we had so much fun and the best part, we were not limited on time! ANOTHER PERK about eloping (it is all on your time). This elopement was s beautiful and I was so happy to be apart of it.


“We couldn’t be any happier with how our photos turned out! She is an amazing photographer with an amazing personality and work ethic. She worked so hard to make sure we felt comfortable taking photos and helped us get the most natural and authentic photos of our wedding day. 5/5 definitely recommend. Photos are not something you want to be mediocre or uncertain of so I highly suggest you hire this wonderful woman to make your big day last forever.” – Mel + Pearl
