yay! YOU'RE ELOPING In Yosemite! I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU! It's simply the best.
HEY, I'M GINA!!
I'M YOUR ROMCOM LOVIN', ELOPEMENT PLANNER, PERMIT FINDER, BAY AREA EXPERT ADVENTURE BUDDY
I'm a sucker for a good love story - from Landon & Jamie in A Walk To Remember, to Monica & Chandler from Friends, to Jim & Pam from The Office - it never fails to make me cry and inspire me. I want to capture your romance in its unique and intimate form. That's why I love helping you plan your day so you two can focus on each other while I worry about the timeline and logistics. I'm here to help make your day look exactly how you envision it - as crazy or tame as you want!
Does that sound amazing to you? Awesome, me too!
And here's the cherry on top...
I send you at least 25 sneak peek photos within 48 hours so you can start sharing your beautiful photos with your friends and family right away instead of an iPhone selfie.
Why do I do this?
Because no way will I let you share quick iPhone snaps when you just got the most beautiful photos of you ever taken!
This means the people who love you get a glimpse into the most special day you just had AND you get to relive it all over again!
Once you fill out the contact form...
Get ready for an email from me with a detailed pricing guide as well as a link to schedule a consult call. After we have our video call and I get to see your smilin' faces and cute dogs we'll book your elopement date! I'll send you a contract and invoice to book and then we get to plannin'! Then the most exciting part happens - your elopement day!!! And it all ends with the most stunning photos that you won't be able to hold back from sharing.
How does that sound?
You may be wondering, "Can I bring my family and friends?"
The wonderful thing about elopements is that you can design it however you want - and I'm guessing you value intimate settings with no drama (same here). I am happy to plan and photograph your Yosemite elopement with up to 5 of your closest loved ones who are thrilled for this next step in your lives! I recommend not having too many guests because Yosemite can get really busy and parking can be very difficult to find. This is why I highly suggest having your ceremony at sunrise and making sure your elopement is on a weekday and even better if it's during off season. Include your guests in your ceremony or photos after and then meet up with them the next day while you and your new spouse spend the day together -
just the two of you.
