Ocean Beach Elopement with Crystal + Sabrina

Last week I had the honor of photographing Crystal and Sabrina on their wedding day! Their Ocean Beach Elopement was relaxed, sweet and oh so special! They were scheduled to have an engagement session, but clearly it turned out a little different haha! Long story short, both of them are in the military, had all their family in town and just decided to go for it! So, when I saw Crystal's wedding dress I quickly realized I had to change my game plan! The beach was more crowded than I've ever seen it, but it was also the most perfect day with gorgeous sunset light! 

Sabrina was so not into taking photos at first, but I knew she was a natural in front of the camera! The newlyweds got “Congratulations!” shouted left and right and after that first 10 minutes of that completely-normal-awkward-feeling in front of the camera, they were so natural and comfortable. 

Crystal rush ordered her dress on Amazon, DIYed her belt, they shopped for Sabrina’s white blazer, a friend gifted them custom champagne glasses and they went and got themselves married! After our quick photo session to commemorate this perfect moment in life, they headed off to dinner with close family and friends to celebrate. 

They rocked their photos and were such a pleasure to get to know! I am so blessed to have the most amazing clients and be invited into their lives to help tell their story! Crystal and Sabrina I wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!
