seaside elopement

michelle & andrew // ucluelet wedding photography

lost in an enveloping coastal forest,
down a steep and sinuous path,
    there is place where the heavens meet the pacific
and wild waves crash the dramatic rocky shoreline, 
     as far as the eye can see. 

in a private cove, 
at the edge of the earth, 
michelle & andrew said their vows.

an intimate ceremony in the trees, followed by dinner on the beach,
and dancing under the stars - 
Mother nature providing her bounty as the backdrop once again,
to such a magnificent
love.   


here is the story of michelle and andrew.

chelsea & brett's seaside mountaintop springtime elopement

chelsea and brett eloped last may, 
on a mountain top, as the sun went down.
and as far as photographer's dreams go, 
this was as good as it gets. 

i had met chelsea years before, at a summer job we both hated, 
and we connected on a level that kept our friendship ignited throughout the years,
long after those summer days of bussing tables and running food. 
after getting new jobs, moving to new cities, and starting our own companies, 
we remained in contact, 
and when she wrote to tell me she was eloping with
THE MAN OF HER DREAMS, and she wanted me to be there to capture it, 
my heart did a swan dive into a luscious pool of
STOKE.

with just a handful of people by their side, 
we spent the day
exploring the seaside and surrounding forrest
stopping for cheeseburgers and golden graham milkshakes, 
and then driving, top down, to the top of Mt Douglas

And with the setting sun at their witness,
 they took each other, 
as man an wife.

these two are truer blue than dallas road spring sky.

here is the story of chelsea & brett.
