Elopements are made up of intimate and meaningful moments

Here’s what an elopement experience is all about:

You love the memories and connections you made through the adventures you had together. Staying up all night non-stop talking, cracking each other up with inside jokes, your love just feels effortless and like an inseparable force.

You deserve an elopement experience you have dreamed for yourself

Why should someone else have a say in where or how to experience your wedding day?

You got to decide the adventures and experiences that have led you here, your wedding day should not be any different!

Your New Best Friend

Hi! My name is Julia and I’m an adventure California Elopement Photographer based in Northern California! I believe your wedding day should be one of the most exciting experiences ever!

Instead of being a host at your wedding, be THE special guest–I will take care of you! From help finding your ceremony locations to vendor recommendations, I have your back.

Like Michael Scott, I’m your biggest cheerleader, I will support you, I will entertain you, and may share an occasional bad joke, but I will treat you like your long lost best friend and take care of you!

I hope you like the office because I relate to this show so, so much! If you are contemplating if you want to elope or not, watch the episode (Niagara: Part 1 & 2) where Jim & Pam literally had two weddings, it’s honestly one of the best representation of what it’s like to go through each different scenario and it always gives me a clear guidance to what experience I would rather have

So much more than A California Elopement photographer

endless moral support and encouragement
