California Elopement + Wedding Photographer

you deserve to have wedding images that truly

 feel like you.

are timeless.

reflect your day.

I believe Black, LGBTQ+, and Trans lives matter. No matter who you love or what you look like, all love is welcome here.

You are the one getting married — not your sister, not your brother-in-law, and certainly not your great-aunt Marge. So why are they getting a front row say in how you spend your day? You know you want something different than the 120 person event they’re pushing on you, but how can you say no to your family? In your heart of hearts you know that you’re longing for something intimate and meaningful with just the handful of most important people to you — but what would that even look like? 

tell me more!

The way you get married matters.

The keyword in that sentence being you, of course. 

The way you get married matters, because it deserves to be your favorite beginning ever.

"She was fast to respond and able to answer our questions and concerns. We love looking back on the photos especially the candid ones because she captured the essence of what was going on so well.

"She did so much more than capture our intimate moments! She helped us with the boutonnière, had emergency bobby pins for my veil, and found an amazing spot for us to take portraits at without a fee. Meg went above and beyond and truly contributed to making our wedding a fairytale experience."

- Jasmine

Meg was so amazing to work with!

What if you could...

have a wedding experience that:

you're absolutely stoked on and want to daydream about even after the fact?

revolves around what you and your partner want (and not caving to Aunt Carol's opinion)?

gives you freedom to plan a completely unique day that feels true to you?

it's time to throw out the rulebook. 

An elopement is a wedding day that feels real and authentic to you. It’s your perfect, ideal day filled with all of your and your partner’s favorite activities. It’s choosing to be true to you and your partner, and letting go of anyone else’s expectations for your wedding experience.

e'lope•ment / noun

create an elopement day that no one has ever had before - 

until now.

"By the end of the shoot, we were soaked, cold, and it was only raining harder. But she made it so much fun, and I was more than happy and wanting to continue through the rain, loving the experience. Meg keeps it relaxed, simple, and the photos that come out at the end of it all are GORGEOUS."
