Lightner Museum Elopement | St. Augustine, Florida | Lauren & Justin

I am officially in love with Elopements! I am a big fan of celebrating your relationship. I mean, I'm a photographer... so that's a bit of an obvious statement. However, I hear stories all the time of couples who choose to elope or have a tiny wedding and don't get a photographer.


Stop it!! Are you still getting married?? Are you agreeing to spend your entire life with someone?? The thing is friends, you don't need a photographer because you have the most incredible florals or renting a castle, or invited 500 people.... you get a photographer because YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED. You and your person. That's what it's about.

So yeah, I love capturing Elopements. Honestly, it's really important to me to stay accessible to people who want to keep it simple. I love the grand too, but I believe every single person and relationship is special and deserves to be celebrated.

OK, back to these two! Lauren and Justin are completely amazing. You can just look at the pictures and see it. They love each other deeply!

This was extra exciting because they are celebrating a pregnancy and soon to be baby boy!! I loved that they wanted to incorporate Lauren's very small, very adorable baby bump in some of the pictures.

They chose to invite just a few family to their ceremony, and everyone was glowing. There was just so much love for this new family. I was honored to be there, and I hope to continue following their life!
