Some people wonder if we do elopements, the answer is YES! Not everything has to be a huge wedding or event. While that is most of our "bread and butter", there is something more fulfilling when doing a small party, or a "Bride Only" job. It feels nice to switch things up.
Two things about this particular elopement:
1. It was my first elopement so I was VERY excited to see what an elopement was like! Weddings are based around your photographer's timeline, and so are elopements....however, this was so much more laid back. So relaxed, I was almost scared I was missing something.
2. We didn't have a trial run together. This was also something foreign to me! Kind of like a Bridal Blind Date.....I have to say, it was kind of exciting to see what we would come up with.
When I arrived, the bride met me out front of the cutest Bed and Breakfast, we quickly made it up to her suite where they were getting ready. It was just Me, the Bride and her Mom.
Since we had a relaxed timeline, most of it was spent time chatting, talking about everything and just enjoying the presence of people and authentic emotion. No Phones, no TV, just human interaction. I sure do hope Eloping is in for a while. This was such a joy to do.
