Bodega Bay Wedding Elopement Portrait Session

Ready for the most amazing Bodega Bay Elopement Portrait Session?

When Caroline and Spencer had to reschedule their wedding due to Covid-19, they were heartbroken. One reschedule turned into two, which turned into three. After all the wrong turns, they finally decided to elope in Minnesota with their families.

Their intimate wedding was perfection, but Caroline wasn’t able to wear her dream wedding dress from Suzanne Neville. When she told me this, I suggested to her that we meet up in Northern CA and have an incredible wedding portrait session with Caroline in her dress and Spencer in his tux from The Black Tux.

They flew up from Southern CA and met me at Bodega Head on a perfect, foggy, October evening. Spencer played the best maid of honor and helped Caroline get dressed IN THE PARKING LOT like a boss. The amazing Jennifer of Jenni Flora delivered the most gorgeous bouquet and Bella Glow Studio helped complete her look along side Kendra from The Blonde Hive.

We walked all over the bluffs together, through the fog until we came to a gorgeous overlook where Caroline and Spencer read their vows to each other. It was pure magic. After that, we walked all over Bodega Head through the fog and finally, towards the end of the evening, the sky cleared and we got a truly remarkable sunset. I’m so grateful we were able to make this portrait session come to life. I couldn’t have done it without the amazing other vendors that played a role as well.
