Golden Hour Inspiration Elopement on the California Coast

Megan grew up visiting this tiny town on the California coast with her family, adventuring amongst the redwoods and hiking along coastal trails. The town is often described as sleepy but could be described as calm and relaxing. It was the obvious choice for Megan and Tyler when deciding where to vacation with friends during the summer! As they began planning the trip they also started planning photos, as one does when traveling with a photographer. Megan and Tyler had just gotten engaged and they were going to take engagement photos, but why not do more than that?! After all, it isn't often they get to visit this sentimental little town. Megan and Tyler’s golden hour inspiration elopement on the California coast was filled with magical light and so many moments!

They spent the first few days of the trip adventuring around the area. Megan had fun sharing childhood stories and showing everyone around. They found our favorite places, and made a game plan.

The inspiration elopement began with some details and getting ready photos around their beautiful vacation home. Once Megan was in her dress, she and Tyler shared a first look, and they packed their things to head to the first location- the forest!

The sun gifted them beautiful warm rays through the huge trees. Once the rays disappeared, they ventured to the coast. Again, they found gorgeous lighting both along the trail and down on the beach as the sun set over the rocks.

Megan and Tyler were the perfect models, down for adventure and ready to chase the light! They popped champagne, took Polaroids, and just had a fun time overall. This is the true key to having beautiful photos of your elopement- chase the light and have fun!
