Big Sur is one of those places that is so incredibly beautiful in photos that you almost don’t believe it could be that perfect in real life. Except that it is. Look at how incredible this elopement in Big Sur is!
Finding the location for your elopement can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone! Lots of time and strategies are put behind researching my locations for my couples. I use sunrise/sunset trackers, Google Earth, All Trails, and so much more to find unique places for your elopement. I work really hard to find spots that aren’t overrun with tourists, so you get to have privacy during your vows. And also so that your pictures remain unique! For Amanda & Camden, Big Sur was their perfect location.
While I had spent months researching the perfect location for Amanda and Camden, I hadn’t yet set foot in Big Sur before in my life. When my husband and I picked up our camper van rental from Outdoorsy and drove down from San Francisco to scout this “perfect location” in person… My jaw was practically on the ground.
I couldn’t believe the landscape in front of me was real! It was legitimately even better than anything I’d seen in photographs. The jagged coastline plunged into vibrant teal waves and swirling aqua coves. The mountains were defined by muted desert hues, but splattered with vibrant splotches of vivid wildflowers and succulents. I couldn’t look away as the contrast was striking. Needless to say, when Amanda and Camden arrived for this beautiful elopement, I was on cloud nine and definitely still in shock.
The fog that moved in from the seas and tucked itself upon the ridge of the mountains behind us set the perfect mood. And although it was cold and blustery, we spent hours adventuring across the coastline. Hiking, exploring, laughing, and making beautiful art and even more beautiful memories. Their chemistry was so genuine, her laughter so contagious, and his love for her so undeniable. This day and this place will forever remain one of my most favorite days in one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been.

“… Seriously, Christina is one of a kind. You’re not JUST getting incredible photos (tho you will be getting a ton of those!), you’re also getting to hang out with a rad human who makes the entire photo session experience genuine and natural. Also, let’s talk about the important details besides how great she is :). Communication was easy and I never felt like I couldn’t reach her. She was helpful in us finding the perfect locations for both our sessions. We told her the vibe we were going for and she made it come to life. The photos were edited beautifully and delivered way sooner than I imagined. EVERYTHING about the experience of working with her was amazing. She’s THE BEST EVA!!!!”
