California, I love you, I truly do! Every part of California I have seen has truly blown me away with its endless natural beauty! What I love even more than just visiting, is actually getting to photograph an elopement in California! Being from the midwest, I can not get enough of all the mountains and cliff side views! There are so many gorgeous places to elope throughout California. The state is filled with gorgeous national parks, beaches, woods, and more! I am so glad Lea and Clay chose a more unknown national park for their elopement, Los Padres National Forest!
Seriously, wow! I do not even know where to begin with how magical this dreamy California elopement up on the mountaintops in Los Padres National Forest was! And what better song to go with standing up in the California mountains, than one of my favorite songs of all time, “Going to California.” Lea and Clay were a blast to work with, and full of so much love for one another, which is super apparent in all the pictures below! SCROLL DOWN TO SEE! These two are off in July to road trip across the country together and I am so stoked to check out their adventures all across the US! From the most beautiful flower arrangements to brightly colored macaroons, and dancing down sunset streets! We had the most magical night together that I will forever cherish!
Thanks to the wonderful vendors who made this shoot possible!
