Clayton & Vanessa are from Calgary. They contacted me to shoot their elopement in Mesa on Pi Day- though I’m not sure they knew that. They were planning a bigger wedding but got frustrated with all of the complicated details come along with planning a larger wedding, so they decided to elope along with their son & daughter & Clayton’s parents who live in Arizona during the good half of the year (smart people). Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch was the perfect backdrop to the stunning day and the lovely Jennifer Ashby officiated the simple, heartfelt and beautiful ceremony.
If you are thinking about eloping, there are so many gorgeous places around the Phoenix area to have your simple, meaningful, intimate ceremony. Contact Jennifer & I for some great ideas and places to get started. The Salt River & Saguaro Lake area are stunning choices. What I love about elopements is the ability to be out in nature and strip a wedding down to its’ essense: you, your loved ones, and the joy of getting married. Elopements have a very special place in my heart 🙂
