more than just your photographer.
When you choose an elopement photographer, it's so much more than just choosing a vendor. It's choosing someone to spend your wedding day with you. You deserve a photographer who cares about your story, someone who gets you and what you're all about, who not only documents your most precious memories but also is there every step of the way to help you craft a day that feels genuine and honest to your love story.
That's why I'm not just here to be your photographer - I'm your guide, your planner, and your new favorite third wheel all in one. My goal for each and every couple is that you walk away with a wedding day experience that was so much more than what you had ever thought it could be. From chatting over our favorite recipes and deciding to start the morning of your wedding day cooking your favorite meal together, to bonding over being introverts and creating space to just be present, to throwing your own spin on the wedding traditions and bringing speakers to have your first dance on the beach, I'm here to help you incorporate what's most important to you. And when the day is over, you'll have all the very best memories documented to relive them all over again.

As a local Big Sur elopement photographer, I provide all of my couples with:

Lynn was amazing to work with from beginning to end. She sent us a ton of inspiration and ideas to really help us dream up how we wanted to spend our special day. Lynn was super open to fun and unique ideas – and because we opted for 8 hours (which we highly recommend… why not! it’s your special day!!) we were able to really have fun and make our day everything we wanted it to be, including multiple dance parties! She was also so amazingly organized and had a helpful list of recommended vendors and Google Map of all the key places that clearly showed the different beautiful locations to make it suuuper easy. We were in Big Sur, it was our first time visiting, and Lynn was clearly an expert in the area. She took us to all the most beautiful places that we would never have been able to find without her and probably aren’t in any guide books! Lynn was like a photographer, Big Sur guide and most importantly, friend all in one. Eloping can feel very surreal but it was really wonderful to have Lynn there with me. Lynn is a wonderful human being and just has a lovely spirit, warm vibe and we instantly felt super comfortable with her. I am a super type A person and did a ton of research and overthought every decision ever. But PLEASE benefit from my experience and make your life easy and reach out to Lynn, you will be SO HAPPY and not regret it!! I would recommend her to anyone. -J+G, Big Sur Elopement
I'll start off by saying that my fiancé (now husband) and I decided to elope during the pandemic and we had no idea where to even begin. I magically stumbled upon Lynn's website where she offered elopement packages in the redwoods of Big Sur. After scrolling through all of her incredible photos on her blog, and also realizing how OCD detail oriented she is (my kind of woman), I was immediately sold. Lynn was very kind and we decided on the 6 hour elopement package which gave us enough time to travel to all the photography spots I wanted (+time for 1 more!!). She very quickly sent over her very detailed and organized wedding planning checklist that literally has everything you need to do to plan your wedding. If I didn't have that checklist, I would've been totally lost! She was so organized and had thoughtful touches like links to photo examples of each location site, local restaurants that she recommends, make up/hair artists, officiants, tips, venues, and all the possible site venues on her personalized google maps. We chose to elope at Glen Oaks Big Sur in the redwoods, which I HIGHLY recommend!! So beautiful and picturesque! We then got to travel to the beach/coast to take incredible photos. Lynn knows all of the beautiful spots and knows exactly how to capture the light to make a beautiful photo even more stunning. Hanging out with her the whole day was just like hanging out with a friend! We also chose to have her husband, Keith, officiate our wedding and he wrote the sweetest words that truly made our ceremony so special. I couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out and if you have any doubt in hiring a photographer for this area...DO IT!!!! I interviewed a few make up artists and they all agreed that Lynn was THE photographer to have, who can get very booked because literally everyone wants to work with her. So definitely reach out to her ASAP and see what the hype is for yourself. Your only regret will be not getting the date you want because you took too long to book with her! -E+C, Big Sur Elopement
They made us feel like family and very special! It stormed during our wedding day and I was anxious all night afterwards, wondering if I messed up the photos by looking like a disaster; My now husband comforted me all night and morning, he continued to repeat, “Dude, we have Lynn, she’s the best there is, it will be perfect”. Lynn worked tirelessly to get us our preview, it was so fast, unexpected and such a treat to open, we can't stop staring at our photos!Our sincerest thanks goes to their team for making our Big Day so EPIC! Our family and friends are in awe of your photography, they could not wait to share it with others. Lynn, your talents/artistry belong in galleries, magazine covers (Vogue, National Geographic, Conde Nast), and shared internationally. You are a compelling story teller through the lens; a compassionate believer in true love stories; and a visionary through unknown paths and unexpected events. Thank you so much for staying calm and putting up with all my long-detailed emails and endless anxiety. I hope you know that you are worthy and deserve all the beautiful things in this world. Keith, your compassion spoke wonders through your ceremony, you made our love story come to life with your beautiful words. It was like you have known us as a couple since the beginning. Thank you so much for braving the cliffs (and staying balanced) to position my train perfectly, carry my hair brush, drag around my bouquet, and endless other tasks!! Lastly, your handkerchief saved my hands (I feel and face planted into the ground), you are genuine and thoughtful, and Lynn is so fortunate to have you as a life partner! Both together were absolutely dynamic! We are extremely beyond blessed to work with Lynn & Keith Lewis; They were the coolest team to collaborate and experience new adventures together! We even asked if we could be their forever friends, and they accepted! -D+B, Big Sur Elopement
