From the moment I first read through Anita and Stefan’s initial inquiry, I knew we were going to hit it off. Their good humored and down to earth personalities shone through from our initial zoom call, and I loved their heart behind choosing to have a Savannah Georgia elopement. They knew that if they planned a big wedding for all their friends and family, they would spend the whole day worrying about everyone else. Making sure that all their guests were having a good time… rather than being fully present for the experience themselves.
So they decided to plan a secret elopement! That’s right. No one other than Anita’s son (who helped her pick out her dress) knew they were running off from Boston to get married in Savannah. How fun!
They chose Savannah for its “southern elegance”, and were captivated by the unique natural landscapes of the southern coastline. And although they originally pictured their ceremony on the beach, they fell in love with the Chapel at Tybee Island and chose to exchange their vows there and spend the rest of their time at the beach and exploring historic downtown Savannah and Forsyth Park.
From the beginning Anita and Stefan fully trusted my vision and we worked together seamlessly leading up to the wedding day to ensure everything was planned out effortlessly. Because the entire day was fully about the two of them, we were able to really take our time. Nothing was rushed or stressful.
The entire day was filled with laughter and joy from beginning to end. From popping champagne on the beach, laughing way too hard as Stefan described the “penis clouds” in the sky, and the looks on their faces when Stefan accidentally snuck a kiss during the ceremony before it was time, the whole day was so authentically them. It was pure joy to experience this elopement day with them.

“Ahhhh….Christina! Where to begin? There are two things you need to know; 1.) Christina is ammmmaaazzzzing! 2.) We (+ALL our family and friends) are OBSESSED with our wedding photos!
From our initial conversation, Christina was interested in understanding what we wanted for our wedding day and how we wanted the photography experience to feel. Also, not sure who was more excited about our day – us or her! She was friendly, upbeat, so enthusiastic and emotionally invested in photographing our wedding, that we couldn’t get over it! We felt so lucky to find her. So grateful, yet it didn’t stop there.
We eloped to Tybee Island, GA and continued to celebrate (and take more photos!) in Savannah. Since we were eloping, pictures of the day were really important to us so we could share the experience with family and friends back home. And man, did Christina nail it!! From the moment she arrived, we felt like we had known Christina our whole lives. Even though we had only met her on Zoom calls, it wasn’t awkward at all. She had such a calming, even keeled presence. The consummate professional, she just stepped right in and got to work right away setting up incredible shots. I remember feeling so confident in her! And also feeling like, “she’s got this!”
When we received our first set of initial pictures, we were absolutely bowled over! I mean shocked! To this day, I cannot get over how beautiful our photos are. Christina’s unobtrusive presence and keen eye captured every single detail! She not only made it fun, but she even captured intimate moments that we could not have imagined and otherwise would have missed! Also, somehow she managed to accomplish all of this without us feeling as if we were being watched or photographed. We recommend Christina Moon of Luna Legacies Photography without hesitation! And honestly, could not imagine our day without her!”
