Nevada City Elopement

This past May, I photographed an elopement so intimate, that it only included the bride & groom, myself and the officiant. My beautiful couple had been together for 11 years already, and described themselves as living the “married life” for quite some time… but now, they were expecting their first baby and the timing seemed right to make things “official.”

For the past several years, they have traveled to Nevada City and stayed at the Inn Town Campground; a quaint little getaway, close to town & the beautiful South Yuba River. It had become a tradition they looked forward to each year… so, when they decided to elope, Nevada City seemed like the perfect place to do it.

We walked to a field just outside the Inn Town Campground property, where they made their vows to one another & embraced wholeheartedly; then, we celebrated back at camp with fresh carrot cake (made by the groom’s sister) and toasted with fizzy soda. They put on their favorite song, and danced under the canopy of pine trees, before we took some portraits and called it a day.

It was so heartwarming to be a part of… and although I wish I could share some of the candid images & portraits that exemplify the love they have together, they have requested that I only post photos of the beautiful details, and I’m honored to respect their privacy. Simple & sweet sum up this day nicely… I am so happy I could bare witness to this intimate celebration!
