K + J always loved the water, so when it came time to choosing a place to elope, they looked at places like New Zealand and Norway, both known for their epic fjords. But as they were talking with their friends, they were reminded that there was a place much closer to home that encompassed everything they were looking for. Just a day's drive from their home in Southern California, they made their way up to Big Sur and immediately fell in love. It was more than just the incredible landscape - it was the vibe and energy of the place. On the day of their elopement, they got to experience so many magical wonders. With no guests but an audience of pelicans and seagulls that flew overhead and sat in the water during the ceremony, they reveled in the majestic coastal views that served as the backdrop to their wedding day. When they drove down Highway 1, they watch in awe of the cloud inversion that wrapped around the coast which made for the perfect impromptu stop. And just as the sun set below the horizon, they got to experience the warm California sun, one of the things they loved about being on the West Coast. What a magical day indeed. Check out the rest of K + J's Big Sur elopement below!
Lynn photographed our elopement in Big Sur
and literally shocked us with our photos they are so incredible! Lynn spent 7 hours with us and we are so so grateful for such a bubbly, joyful, smart, kind, professional, expert photographer with us. She was an absolute added gem to our day. She was never intrusive and gave us just the right guidance and suggestions on how to make the shots perfect and at the same time she never pushed and was always offering options and asking for our thoughts.
In addition to her talent and bubbly spirit, she helped me plan the whole timeline, despite having hired a Big Sur wedding coordinator. Lynn ended up stepping up big time for me and we had several discussion over the timeline and locations of shots when I couldn’t connect with my coordinator. Her and Josh also did a great job at sticking to the timeline! SO PROFESSIONAL
The shots are breathtaking and I couldn’t wish for more. I HIGHLY recommend!!! -K + J
