7 Hot Takes on Wedding Traditions

This deserves to be your favorite beginning ever. Why not make it the most meaningful day possible?

In this day and age, we are bombarded with information from all sides — and planning your wedding is no exception. You're receiving subliminal messaging about what a wedding "looks like" from romcoms, Pinterest, your family of origin, and all of the weddings you've already been to. You might be going into planning your own wedding with all of those ideas buried in your subconscious and not even realize it.
You might be blindly following the status quo and not even realize it.

Have you stopped to think about whether or not any of it means anything to you?
What would it look like if you turned off the noise and listened to your inner knowing; if you knew there were no rules whatsoever? (spoiler: there aren't)

What if you...

had the audacity to create a wedding day that was exactly what you wanted?

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

could feel harmonious about a completely unique day that feels truly in alignment?

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

p.s. an elopement can be SO much more than a 1 hr courthouse ceremony with just the two of you. schedule a consult with me so I can tell you all about what's possible!! no strings, I promise.

it's time to throw out the rulebook. 

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

until now.

hey there!

my name's Meg & I'm here to help you bring your (wedding) dreams to life.

I'm an elopement + wedding photographer based in the SF Bay Area in Northern California.

When my husband and I started planning our wedding day, we knew we wanted something very different than a traditional, big wedding day. We wanted an experience that was intimate, sentimental, and relaxed. And that's exactly what we created! We kept the traditions that made sense to us, and scrapped the rest without a shred of guilt.

I know what it's like to want something different for your wedding day than the rest of your family, and I'm here to help you through the process of doing the same: planning a wedding for you, first and foremost.

I want that for us!

"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 elopement a fairytale experience."
