Santa Lucia Preserve Elopement

The Elopement

Santa Lucia Preserve is the dreamiest location for an intimate elopement in the forest. Situated on 31 square miles of land, the Preserve is home to over 300 families surrounded by oak trees and ocean views. It’s an oasis that I feel honored to have been able to document such a monumental day on.

The Couple

Miles was my next-door bartender that I would visit whenever I needed a post-editing beer. Upon finding out he was engaged, I offered to take him and Rachel’s engagement photos and now here we are! COVID postponed their wedding but they still managed to tie the knot with their closest family and friends by their side. The big party, when it is safe, is still to come.

Rachel and Miles, thank you for keeping me around through all the hoops we jumped through together. Happy I met you both and can now consider you both my friends in the neighborhood.

Love you both so much!
