"I love the amazing people I get to meet through photography. Connecting with my clients and gifting them with incredible photos that take them back to those amazing moments. I absolutely love to make them feel something."
Alex & Kelsey have been together almost 10 years. They’re from the same small town in Ohio and have known each other since they were young (Alex’s brother was born one day before Kelsey and their moms were in hospital beds next to each other… I know right), and moved to San Diego last year. They both really don’t like being the center of attention + love to travel, so they decided a traditional wedding just wasn’t for them. They really wanted to keep their love and commitment to each other at the focus, always dreaming of a destination elopement. Kelsey reached out to me when I had posted my travel dates and we realized that Daniel & I were going to be in Europe at the same time as them. She let me know that she & Alex were thinking of eloping on the Amalfi Coast and wanted me to capture it! I’ve visited Italy about 4 times now… it has to be one of my favorite countries in the world & will always be my #1 place to elope. So it was pretty much a dream come true for me. Kelsey + Alex wanted to elope somewhere breathtaking and we discussed some possibilities, but something pulled them to the Amalfi Coast and I’m so glad it did. We spent the next 6 months frantically researching, planning, and dreaming about the trip! I’m so happy that our research and hard work payed off. We didn’t have a planner, or anyone helping us with the day. We just went with the flow and did what felt best for them, and it was better than we could’ve imagined! I’m so happy that these two found me and that I could be there to capture this incredible adventure. I love bonding with couples who are determined to do their own thing for their wedding. I feel that it’s so important to listen to that little voice that says maybe a traditional wedding day isn’t for you guys. If you strip away all the extras and make it about a meaningful experience, it will be an unforgettable memory with your love and commitment at the center of it all.
