We love doing styled shoots with a real couples; we think it feels more authentic.
So as we were planning this elegant elopement-themed shoot, we thought our longtime friend, Asher, and his girlfriend of two years, Amanda, would be perfect. Their laid back vibe was spot on for our Pelican Cove shoot.
This styled shoot was inspired by dreamy neutral earth tones and soft blush, all of which can be found in the Palos Verdes landscape itself. We’re so grateful for FloretMoon, who provided the bangin’ blooms, Emerald for doing masterful makeup and hair, Abigail of Gardenia, for the chic wedding dresses and H&M for the suit. We couldn’t be more happy with how these photos came out. When we asked Asher if he and Amanda would want to model for the shoot, he had an idea we were eager and excited to help with.
Following the elopement shoot, he wanted to get down on one knee and propose to Amanda. As planned, following the elopement shoot, Asher popped the question to Amanda, with Gunnar and I snapping away. We were so honored to help capture the moment for our dear friends. Hope you enjoy!
