Liana + Brian’s Rustic Backyard Elopement in San Diego


Liana and Brian have become good friends with us since their wedding. Experiences with them will do that. They’re infinitely invested in the people around them and once they know you, you’re in their life. We’ve spent nights sleeping on their couch, eating food in their kitchen and playing Settlers. Their wedding was a beautifully intimate and sacred ceremony, 28 people in field outside San Diego, soaking up the sunlight and running toward the mountains after their first kiss. They proved that bigger isn’t better and they chose the less popular but more meaningful route for celebrating their marriage. We’re so honored to witness and capture all the moments:san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography10san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography1san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography2san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography13Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-9san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography11san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography15san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography14san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography5san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography7san-diego-wedding-kindred-wedding-photography6Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-17Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-18Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-19Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-23Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-20Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-21Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-26Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-24Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-27Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-28Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-29Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-35Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-31Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-34Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-37Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-39Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-45Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-41 MG_0350-487-19-69MG_0521-538-26-76Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-47MG_0704-577-31-81Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-52Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-51Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-48Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-54Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-55Zach-elle-photography-san-diego-wedding-photography-32

Anne + Cole
Anne and Cole were married on an extremely rainy and dreary day. But because of their positivity, total love for each other and support from their family, it was nothing but romantic and epic. It made me wish that every wedding day had rain. It made people huddle together that much closer. They were all in it together. And after much debate, everyone gathered under a massive moss-covered tree, umbrellas in hand and soaked up every moment of a truly intimate, intentional and emotional ceremony. As the rain came down, Anne and Cole said their vows, exchanged rings and a snot covered kiss with total joy. It was a truly unique and inspiring thing ...
Brook + Brad
Where to begin. We love these two. Brad and Brook embody so many things we aspire to be as a couple. They're honest, thoughtful, deeply feeling and caring people. Their wedding day was not an exception. They found a venue that was nestled in the mountains in Ojai with a beautiful home and a rustic barn that housed beautifully vintage chandeliers. It was a heartfelt and intimate evening, filled with kind words, some tears and lots of laughter. Brook surprised Brad by singing her and Brad's favorite song "When the Stars Go Blue" by Ryan Adams. It was so special. They were able to create a wedding that held a type of sacred space and we feel so ...
Julia + Tahnee’s Backyard Wedding in Nevada City
Julia and Tahnee had it special from the start. They met in South America, studying abroad both learning to speak Spanish. They traveled through the continent together, first as friends and then as lovers. Fast forward five years, their love has only grown. Really. Relationships create a third presence, the "we" and J+T's relationship is magnetic, disarming everyone that surrounds them. They act like they started dating 3 months ago yet you can sense the wisdom and maturity in their relationship that only comes from time spent and intentional steps, growing together. Needless to say, we cried way too many times at their wedding and it was one ...
