Northern California Romantic Seaside Elopement


Ankita and Raj wanted an intimate elopement before their big Indian wedding that took place the first weekend in May! They had a simple civil ceremony at San Francisco city hall, and celebrated with this coastal elopement shoot that was just as beautiful and romantic as their love story! They had to overcome many barriers to finally be together and they wanted a happily ever after that reflected their story and embraced their love for each other! This took place on the beautiful, yet rough Northern California coastline. The wind stirred up the waves, the salty air created a misty haze so strong the sun could not break through and the breeze was as cold as ice, yet the thrill of their love kept them warm! To give these images an extra special touch, I shot almost all of them in 35mm film using the magical Fuji 400H. I had the pleasure of styling the couple by picking their wardrobe for their session and I also got to collaborate with some very talented vendors to make this all come together so beautifully! I hope you guys enjoy these magical images! Congratulations once again to Ankita and Raj! Wishing all the happiness this world has to offer! A Link to all the vendor’s websites is located at the bottom of this entry! Be sure to check them out, especially if you’re a NorCal Bride to Be!

I love that golden hour light and her beautiful smile!
The groom’s details were on point! From the┬áboutonniere to the suspenders, the cuff links, the watch, the skinny tie, and the shoes!
So many lovely details shot on 35mm film! I love the grain, the color tones and the contrast! That shimmering light bouncing off the water is gorgeous!

Talk about a beautiful cake, and those roses were actually edible!!
