For those who also might not have an idea of what to look for, here are some examples. You need someone calm, collected, skilled, patient, organized, relatable, and of course fun. You need someone to make you feel comfortable doing all the fabulous poses, especially if you’re more on the reserved side, like we were. You also need someone who actually gives a damn.

Hi I’m Henry and I give a damn about your Big Sur Elopement Photography

My husband and I eloped when elopement wasn’t even a thing or “trendy” on instagram and Pinterest.

We eloped because of multiple reasons and one of the most important ones is that we wanted our day to represent who we are and what we are about, no more, no less. We wanted our day to be full of love, to be slow enough so we can enjoy every single moment. Because elopement is so so so much more than epic photos, it’s all about you and whom you love, together, all at once, experience one of the most important moments in life.

I GIVE A DAMN ABOUR YOUR ELOPEMENT BECAUSE I WAS IN YOUR SHOES JUST A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

Here are some places you might have seen my work on elopement photography:

I photograph love the way love naturally occurs: organically and tenderly.

I experience the this kind of love first hand and I know exactly what it feels like to forget the world and just be with the one who matters the most. So trust me to be there to celebrate you and celebrate with you. To hold your hands, to cry with you, to create memories that will last a lifetime for you

I am inspired by your story, your voice, the way the wind touches your face, the way you look into each other’s eyes and tell each other your vows.

Back to a little review from my previous bride: “You need someone calm, collected, skilled, patient, organized, relatable, and of course fun. You need someone to make you feel comfortable doing all the fabulous poses, especially if you're more on the reserved side, like we were.”

COMFORTABLE. Such a simple word but also a huge element in wedding photography. Trust me, I’ll be there for you. Trust me, I’ll make sure you both are comfortable in front of my camera so we can actually capture you for the real you.

I am not just a photographer. I don’t just photograph. Rather, I document moments, details. and stories. I invest in each couple who trusts and values my work. I provide 110% into what I do because I fucking care.
