If you follow the amazing wedding blog Junebug Weddings, you may have already seen this luxurious, gorgeous elopement back in October! Like all wedding blogs, Junebug carefully curates the photos they love the most, so I wanted to include a few more from that gorgeous June day.
I arrived in SF a few days before Chelsea and Ben’s elopement, on a June Thursday. I had reached out to my friend Parker to show me around the city, since I haven’t lived in the Bay Area since I was 11. He and his girl showed me some of their favorite haunts – we drove for hours through the city, exploring the touristy places, the very-not-touristy places, enjoying both the sunshine and the evening fog.
We stumbled upon some GEMS that have given me some of my proudest work to date. Chelsea and Ben were a DREAM to photograph – the very best kind of laid-back casual glam you can imagine. They got married at San Francisco City Hall – I made Chelsea’s brother run back to my rental something like 3 times to feed the meter because the JoP had his hands full with other ceremonies and we were like 2.5 hours behind schedule. After the ceremony, Chels and Ben hightailed it out of that hall with me and we gallivanted around the city like we owned it.
To Chelsea and Ben, ladies and gentlemen.
