big sur destination wedding photographer – arne and melanie elopement

It was a special honor to photograph this Big Sur destination wedding. This incredibly sweet bride and groom are from Germany and came all the way to Big Sur, California to say “I Do”! Arne and Melanie fell in love with Big Sur on a prior vacation and knew they wanted to return. I first talked with these two on Skype several months ago, and I knew their Central Coast elopement wedding would be a truly beautiful celebration to photograph. I was so excited to travel back here after falling in love with Big Sur on a camping trip last Spring, and for this trip I got to stay in the gorgeous town of Monterey!  Arne and Melanie kicked off their marriage with their closest friends and so much love, excitement, and FUN!

I’m happy to share just a few of my favorites from the day! Arne and Melanie were staying at the Glen Oaks which gave us the opportunity for fairy-tale like photos in the Redwoods. The ceremony was held on the dunes of Julia Pfeiffer State Beach in sight of the bright blue Pacific ocean and the dramatic rocks. For dinner and drinks they headed to the Big Sur Bakery & Restaurant. Enjoy these photos from magical Big Sur, California!

EDIT: Scroll down to the bottom for a sweet review from the groom! I am a full time photographer and I photograph portraits, elopements and weddings all across California and the world. I would love to document your beautiful love story in magical Big Sur! Please contact us to inquire about your photo dreams.

Thanks to our photographer. We saw her pictures on the internet and called her via Skype from Germany to get to know each other. On our wedding day there were no problems in organization – she knew what to do and she was so nice, it felt like she was a friend joining us on this special day. She had many good ideas for locations to take photos and always had an ear for our ideas and she exactly knew how to implement them. The photos are breathtaking. One can feel that she loves what she’s doing. Thank you for that great day! – Arne, The Groom
