Judy and Justin’s Big Sur Adventure Elopement

Our intrepid couple swapped the shoreline of Lake Superior, for the breathtaking views of Big Sur for their romantic, adventure elopement.

When couples choose me to be their adventure elopement photographer, it is a great honor. They trust me to not only capture moments on their Big Sur elopement, but also, they place their faith in me to make their big day special and unique. To be a memorable, momentous occasion that unites both the eloping couple with each other, and the beauty of the California countryside. Often times, elopement photography clients ask me for recommendations on where to go during their Big Sur adventure. And always, I’m only too happy to share some of the incredible destinations on offer in this magical part of the country.

One such eloping couple, who decided that California, and more specifically Big Sur, was the wedding destination for them, was Judy and Justin. This sweet pair of Minnesota natives with a love for the great outdoors, often spent their weekends exploring the wonders of their local national parks. Fun, chilled and obviously deeply in love with each other, I knew from the start that I was going to love being their adventure elopement photographer. In fact, I knew Judy for a few years prior to our day together because I’m a Minnesota native too! And so, when she reached out to me explaining that they were road tripping to Big Sur to elope, I was so stoked! I knew I could make this a lot of fun for them, and take some stunning photos that would make all their friends back in MN so jealous!
