What is Eloping? 

Eloping is making the day you say I DO all about you, and when I say you, I mean you as a couple, without worrying about a rigid timeline or logistics for guests:
Your elopement can be as adventurous or as low key as you want it to be. It can involve a sunrise hike, or it can be at sunset in your own backyard.
You can choose somewhere you hav been or hop on a plane to discover a new continent together.Sky’s the limit! Pun intended!
And if you have no clue what you want yet, I planned our own all-day elopement in less than a month, so yeah, I am an expert. Joking - kind of :)
So when you hire me, you get an all-inclusive package. You hire a photographer, but also a planner, a travel assistant, and a cake connoisseur 'cause I take CAKE super seriously and elopements deserve cake too, am I right?
or am I right?

All you need to start planning your dreamy and stress-free elopement below

"We decided to elope at 5 am at the Griffith Park Observatory. Sara was all for it. She was there before us, scouting the location. She was all smiles at that time of the morning and 40 degrees weather. She made us smile. We didn't feel rushed at all. She was so patient and professional and she delivered our amazing sneak peeks in 3 days and delivered our package within three weeks, much faster than the contract said. Every single picture was beautiful. We always get so much compliments on our photos. Thank you Sara for capturing our day so beautifully."
