Ever dreamt of a Santa Cruz Elopement on the beach?!! If so, all the inspiration you need is here. Spending the day with Jayda and Lez soaking in the sun and love they have for each other was the absolute best! Jayda & Lez are hands down two of the cutest people ever!! Jayda’s giggles and Lez’s easy going personality made for the absolute best combo!!!
These two are from Sacramento (as am I!) and it’s only about a 2.5 hour drive to this gorgeous location!! It was so special getting to explore one of the cutest little hip beach towns in California with them!!! There are endless beautiful locations to elope or have a Santa Cruz wedding. There are beautiful forests, beaches, and mountains to explore for your day! Across from this location the green rolling hills were bursting with yellow flowers!! No matter where you looked there was a stunning spot to explore!!
Elope in Santa Cruz!
Santa Cruz is for the earthy, hippie, easy going couples who want to share their vows in one of the most beautiful places in California! After eloping, there are tons of places to eat, breweries to drink at, and beaches to relax at! If you want to add a retro carnival vibe, visit the Santa Cruz boardwalk to snag a few photos there, play some games, and grab yourself a churro! This would also be so much fun for an engagement session!
I grew up spending a week in Santa Cruz every summer and have continued to spend a lot of time there! If you’re looking for a photographer who can also be your wing woman and mini elopement planner, I’ve got you!!! Book me and let’s plan your dream adventure elopement!!
