When it comes to photographing elopements, I (Sarah) generally photograph them solo, to keep with the theme of quiet intimacy that elopements lend to. I often don’t get to meet the couple until a few minutes before their ceremony, and quickly get to know them before their ceremony begins, then spend more time hanging out with the both of them after they say their vows. I’ve never fallen in love with a couple more quickly than I did with Rhonda and Kevin, feeling totally comfortable with each of them in the moments before they walked down to the forest amphitheater for their joyful, simple ceremony. Rhonda and Kevin emanate sweetness, and layered their interactions with each other and towards me with reverence and compassion. It was an honor to get to be a witness to their wedding and spend a sunny afternoon finding good light for portraits!
