California wedding Photographer

specializing in true-to-you elopement experiences for fellow nature lovers

Hi, I'm Karen.

I've always thrived in exploring the world- backpacking outdoors, catching flights to new countries, or driving my car across the country for a road trip adventure.

I'm inspired by these experiences and share my passion with couples I get to work with.

I believe in the power of elopements so much that I eloped myself in the breathtaking Italian Dolomites. I eloped away from the crowds, with the people I'm most comfortable being me, and created the most precious memories with the love of my life. Our wedding entrance was via ski chairlift!

I had the wedding of my dreams.

It is possible to have a stress-free elopement of your dreams among a landscape indescribable in words, while hand-in-hand with your life partner. 

I support my couples in achieving this- in living out their dream wedding.

Karen’s work is incredible! We watched the slideshow tonight with our daughter and it was perfect for story telling. Karen delivers more than just a file of photos, she delivers a story. With Karen’s well balanced guidance, energy, and peacefulness My husband and I were able to submerge ourselves in the present moment and truly feel like it was just the two of us.

Core Values

All love welcome

Elopement weddings are for everyone. Love is love. All love is worthy of being celebrated and honored.

Leave No Trace

Preserving the environment for future generations by being mindful of our interactions with nature and making deliberate choices that reduce our impact.
