I’m a San Francisco, California based wedding and elopement photographer for people who want authentic moments of joy captured naturally and refuse to accept generic photos.

 A California elopement photographer with a style that is :

Joyful. Candid. Creative. Fun.

Mt Rainier Elopement

"What's an Elopement?"

My elopement definition – 25 guests and less.

By making your wedding day intimate and intentional, you get to focus on just the two of you and not worry about putting on a show for everyone else.

I’d love to be your Elopement Photographer.

Just because it’s “only” an Elopement doesn’t mean it isn’t
as important an occasion as any other wedding. Often, it is MORE important.

"Why Elope?"


– a “JUST US” experience that is :
AUTHENTIC 
FUN
INTIMATE 
MEANINGFUL

Experienced California Elopement Photographer

Hi I’m Ian, a San Francisco, California based Wedding and Elopement Photographer (and Marriage Proposal Photographer).

I specialize as a San Francisco Elopement Photographer with a focus on weddings at San Francisco City Hall, and love intimate elopements with small guest sizes. I am a San Francisco wedding photographer, but love to travel to Lake Tahoe and Yosemite in particular. Check out these elopement locations for ideas :

Best Places to Elope in Lake Tahoe

As an elopement photographer, I have to say California is one of the best places for 
outdoor elopements with so much variety. I’d love to connect with you to discuss my Elopement Packages. 

Any location for your elopement where I can breathe fresh air and be out in nature truly makes me happy. But if you want me to come photograph your elopement at Disneyworld – I can retire and honestly say I don’t have any other wedding bucket list item!

So take a look around the happiest place on Earth my website and enjoy the ride!
