They couldn't help but take in the cool California ocean air and breathtaking views as they stared at crashing waves on all sides.

Seeing the look of excitement on their faces grew a spark inside of me. Photographing couples in jaw dropping landscapes had become my passion and I wanted to become one of the many California elopement photographers to help couples elope in California!

Maybe my next California elopement will be somewhere that YOU will pick! I'd love to help you break the tradition and find somewhere that you want to get married at anywhere in California! Whether you're looking for an elopement photographer in California or California elopement packages, you've come to the right place!

SO WHAT IS AN
ELOPEMENT?

AND WHY SHOULD I DO IT IN CALIFORNIA?

Imagine being able to travel to anywhere in California with your significant other and committing to them your life through marriage. Through elopements, a lot of the stress of a traditional wedding goes away when you decide on a beautiful destination and focus your California elopement package on just you and your significant other. 

Not every couple is adventurous and that's okay! I wouldn't consider myself a huge wildlife explorer myself! That's why an eloping in California can truly be whatever you want it to be. You and your significant other dress up in formal attire, share vows, and take beautiful photos in the location of your choice. Some couples choose to walk through towering Redwood forests or climb over the cliffsides of Northern California. Whether you elope in Yosemite or down the coast in San Diego, your California elopement package will be focused on you and your love for each other.

"We decided to hire Archie and it was the best decision! Not only did he do a great job with the photos, but produced a beautiful movie like video that showed emotion and beautiful scenery"

With each adventure session and elopement that I photograph and film, I develop the love I feel towards elopements grow each and every day. Being out in nature has quickly become one of my favorite activities, especially on the California coast.

Growing up, I wanted to film and photograph volcanoes, mountains, and everything in between! As I worked towards this goal, I was given an opportunity to get into destination weddings and fell in love with it. Ever since my first destination wedding, I wanted to experience more aspects of the world that I had been scared to experience prior.

 

Flash forward to today and California elopements are my passion and being able to serve couples who want an elegant and luxurious elopement in California fills my heart with joy!

Although I tend to focus on elopements, I also consider myself one of the many California wedding photographers and take on plenty of California weddings per year!

CALIFORNIA ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
BY ARCHIE

"Archie was absolutely AMAZING. I wanted clear, crisp, bright pictures that weren’t over filtered like a lot of photographers do now. He was so easy to work with, told us exactly what to do, and is so friendly and responsive. The pictures turned out even better than we could have wanted and we can’t wait to print them and hang them up on our walls! Best photographer I’ve ever worked with!"
