Jordan + Ashley surprised us all with their Newport Beach elopement at Inspiration Point!!!
Oh how I love the story of these two!!! So, Ashley first reached out to me a while back about an engagement session. We booked it and had planned to photograph their engagement session since they were planning on eloping out of the country. One day I get a phone call from them saying that they have decided to elope at the beach instead and wanted to take the date that was set for their engagements and make it an elopement. I was stoked to say the least. I mean how cool is that? I am talking the month of their engagement session just deciding on a whim “HEY, LET’S JUST GET MARRIED” ahhhhhh I love it! This day was so much fun and so perfect. These two had the most beautiful elopement, so intimate, and so perfect. Jordan and Ashley each brought a friend to witness and be apart of it and their family friend was their officiant. These two were so so happy and their love for one another just radiated off of their smiles. It was such a beautiful day and I was so honored to be apart of it with them.
“My guy and I have been engaged for 2 years and we hired Nicole for our engagement session. Little did I know we were going to be planning an elopement within a month and I’m so glad Nicole was all about it! She was genuinely happy and excited for us which helped calm our nerves about the decision to elope. We quickly picked a location down in Newport, got all those last minute things and before we knew it the day had come and gone. I met Nicole as I was walking down the beach, the second I saw her I felt so calm, excited, and so happy I had someone there I trusted that would capture every beautiful moment. I loved her energy, her excitement, and fun spirit. My favorite memory with her was looking at the rocks and saying, “I really love those rocks…they would make great pictures” and we immediately decided “YEAH we’re climbing those rocks for the pictures” 😀 And I’m so glad we did because holy cow those pictures came out AH-MAZING!!!
I have nothing but good things to say about Nicole and her pictures, I can not wait to show our parents the pictures and tell them we got married. She truly captured everything and more for us, and I’m so grateful for that.” – Ashley & Jordan
