I thought I loved weddings. But then I shot my first elopement!
Shirley and Anthony and a few of their closest friends and family made the journey from the East Coast to the West Coast to celebrate their intimate yet stunning elopement. The backdrop was the Santa Rosa Plateau, a hidden reserve in Murrieta, California. The venue, a photographer’s dream: The Marquess; A private residence complete with a stone chapel, a lake and a 100 year old oak tree. With mountains and olive trees all around, there wasn’t a spot that didn’t scream to be photographed. Greenhouses served as the bridal suite and private reception venues. Even the most intimate affair has a lavish feel in this gem.
