sometimes I meet brides and we hit it off right away and they hire me on the spot.

and I don’t say this in an arrogant, “hey, I’m so successful” kind of way, because this doesn’t happen often. I say this to express how grateful I am that Laura and Josh found me and trusted me enough to photograph their beautiful elopement.

wedding planning, as we all know, is stressful and overwhelming. and these two decided that when it all came down to it, they didn’t need all the fuss. they just wanted to be married.

so, on the fourth of July, Laura put on her wedding dress, Josh put on his blindfold, we hiked to the top of a hill, and they got married while overlooking the city that they love.

and if that isn’t romantic, I don’t know what is.
