Intimate Hollywood Adventure Elopement | Amanda + Alexandra

Amanda and Alex were sitting on a big secret. They were engaged and planning a wedding, but then COVID-19 hit and they silently started working on another plan.

These two beautiful women chose to elope.

They designed a day that was perfectly them and I couldn’t be happier to have been tasked with filming it for them. 

They wanted their day to be filled with their favorite things…

Like, the beautiful home they built together, their sweet pup, their favorite park for their actual ceremony and their downtown Hollywood haunts where their relationship started. 

We had so much fun just taking the day as it came. While they had makeup and hair done I wandered between rooms, collecting the scenes that make up their every day. I watched their pup curiously follow them around wondering what they heck his moms were up to. I heard the stories they told about each other—their eyes telling more than the words spoken. 

I’ll let the film speak for itself, because nothing I could write would do it justice really. I’m just so stoked for them that they were able to have an elopement that perfectly represented their story and their love.

Cheers to Amanda and Alex!
