I am so excited to share the images from Shellie and Anthony's Laguna Beach elopement wedding! Elopement style weddings are really popular during the summer months of Southern California. For me, I love when I get the opportunity to do a weekday elopement. The beaches are way less crowded during the week making for some great uninterrupted photographs. Also, it's really fun to head out to the beach, meet an awesome couple, and shoot around for a couple of hours!
I am used to planning all day weddings and working with my couples for months leading up to the big day. Elopements I meet the couple the day of, which is actually really fun and spontaneous! They often have really great stories from where they are from since most are not from Southern California.
Shellie and Anthony were really fun to work with! They are from Texas and have been waiting forever to get married. With having six kids between the two of them, they made the decision to elope. They had a romantic, simple ceremony celebrating their love. They also wrote their own vows to each other to really add the personal touch to their beach wedding. After the ceremony we wandered around Victoria Beach, right down the street from downtown Laguna. This beach was great for photographs. What makes this beach unique is the old lighthouse that is no longer accessible to beach goers, but it is really neat as a backdrop for photographing!
I hope you enjoy their photographs, I really had a great time being a part of their big day!
Congratulations Shellie + Anthony!
