Over the last year and a half, especially, I've had the privilege of photographing quite a few elopements that I haven't been able to share images from. Many couples decide to get married before their actual wedding day for any number of reasons, some couples decide to secretly tie the knot and share some of the images as an "engagement session, some couples elope and just don't tell anyone. Ever. All secret-like. James-Bond-stealth-style.
Anyway, I love me some elopements, y'all. 1. The stress of wedding planning disappears and the couple is able to truly relax and enjoy the moments fully. 2. It's incredibly intimate and so, so special. 3. ALL THE FEELS. 4. Secrets, secrets ARE SO FUN! So, when Régine texted and said that she and Jeremy had decided to tie the knot shortly before their wedding day in THEIR LIVING ROOM, I kind of invited myself and told her I had to be there. I never intended to share the photos from that sweet morning, but when they gave me permission to do so, I was over the moon.
Not only did they decide to get married in that room, we photographed their engagement session there, and it was such an honor to be a witness to their private vows - along with their officiant and their three precious cat babies. One of the highlights of the year, for sure. If you and your boo are considering secretly tying the knot and want someone to photograph and help plan it, please feel free to reach out! I can even provide you with an officiant and some guidance if you need. These are some of my favorite, favorite things to photograph ever.
