M+S | Woodside Redwoods Elopement | Bay Area Wedding Photographer

I photographed this amazing, intimate Woodside elopement in the redwoods over a year ago. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to actually blog it. Meredith and Stephen were referred to me by my good friend George and I was nervous about taking the session. I didn’t think I ever wanted to photograph a wedding and, at the time, I had only photographed a couple engagements. But Meredith assured me that it would be a small, casual affair with just their two best friends as officiant and witness. I am so glad that I said yes, because it was an absolutely amazing experience. I am still blown away that they trusted me to be there and take photos for such an important, personal moment. 

NE2A9049I arrived at their house up in the hills of Woodside where we took a couple quick photos before all five of us piled into a car together along with their dog Olive. We drove a couple miles down the road to one of their favorite places to run together. Then we found a beautiful clearing in the redwoods with pretty light and began the ceremony. It was such an incredibly beautiful moment. It seriously made me consider doing something similar, and I always thought I wanted the big, traditional wedding, haha! Thank you again for trusting me to photograph your perfect day, Meredith and Stephen!

    I totally remember the shares from this wedding! Oh my, that clearing is perfect and I love how their shadows all came together when they were playing with their dog. Beautiful Alice!
