Lake Almanor Simply Stunning Elopement: Brittany + Ricky

Driving into the Lake Almanor area, I was stunned and taken aback by all the beauty that I was going to be able to shoot. I remember looking over at my husband Tanner and feeling so grateful for the opportunity we were about to have of shooting an elopement in such a beautiful spot. Northern California never disappoints and this elopement was no different. We were able to see Mount Lassen’s reflection on the water, the lush greenery from the trees and the lake’s blue waters.

Not only were we able to capture Brittany and Ricky’s love so specific to their relationship but we were able to do some fun shots in the water with incredible sunsets and sunrises that showed the fun these two have together, just like two best friends should. Basically the Redwoods and Lake Almanor treated us well.

Dreamy Outdoor Engagements at Schwabacher's Landing in Jackson Hole

Haley and Chip are such a cute and fun loving couple. I was literally obsessed with them from the moment I met them.
We met up at a McDonald’s right beforehand to get to know each other and get a feel for what they were wanting from their shoot. I love all of my brides and grooms, but immediately loved them when I ordered 15 chicken nuggets and they didn’t even bat an eye. Those are my kind of people! Not only are they just the funniest people, but they are so kind and were so in love.

Ditch Tradition: Why You Should Elope!

Shooting elopements are my absolute fave and something I specialize in. Elopements are so fun, and so much less stress. So, did you just get engaged and are terribly overwhelmed by your to-do list? Are you looking for something that showcases your love and focuses on the relationship and not the party? Do you have a small budget? Or are you just looking to break tradition and do something totally different?

Either way, I’ve got all the reasons why you should break tradition and ELOPE! I asked one of my elopement brides, Vanessa, who recently eloped at the Grand Teton National Park in Jackson, to give some insight on her elopement and why they chose to do it the way they did.
