As we approach the end of 2017 I thought I should really get round to sharing some of the (many!) photographs I took during our elopement road trip in the US in May. Russell and I had planned a wedding in Cornwall with all of our friends and family but during the planning decided to just elope instead! As a joke we decided to go to Vegas and the idea kind of stuck. Neither of us are big city people so we opted to get married in the desert.
Our kick ass photographer Anna Pumer not only agreed to come on the adventure with us but also suggested that we make an awesome road trip out of it. We planned to fly into San Francisco, explore Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Death Valley, Vegas (just to get married, woo!) Zion National Park, the Valley of Fire and finally Los Angeles. Certainly no mean feat in such a short space of time. We totally pulled it off but if I could do it again I'd go for a month! We fell head over heels in love with Yosemite and California and can't wait to go back for a future anniversary ♡
Both of us would recommend eloping or having an intimate wedding if the planning is getting a little much. My parents came along with us and that suited us just fine ♡
Definitely get in touch if you're planning a fun wedding adventure of your own - I would LOVE to photograph an elopement. Having eloped myself I can offer as much or little guidance as you need :)
Now for a selection of photos! - Grab a cuppa, this could take a while ;)
