Moody BIG SUR STYLED ELOPEMENT SESSION
I don’t deserve these two. The entire time we photographed together, I was yelling against the wind like a total crazy person. I was in awe of how this session turned out. These two are what made it. Their love is simple, good and evident. Lauren put her wedding dress (BHLDN) on that she had previously worn for their actual wedding almost a year prior to this shoot and Ben dressed in this timeless wedding suit (Men’s Warehouse). Before racing a storm to Big Sur, we stopped by Trader Joes and I fashioned together a bouquet that was almost larger than Lauren herself. :) We had the best time and I have never posted this full set until now. I truly hope you enjoy it. There is a freedom to their love and that was what I wanted to capture in it’s purity. The opportunity to photograph them is what shifted my mind and heart in this career.
I am looking forward to heading back to Big Sur soon and now, without further introduction, here is Ben and Lauren - barefoot and in love on the west coast.
