Do you have a budget in mind for the photographer?  (I don’t want to suggest someone who is more that you’d like to spend.)

Vivian Chen is based in the SF Bay area and travels, she may be within budget (I’m not sure about her travel fees). She does absolutely beautiful photography of outdoor weddings.   She’s also a delight to work with!

You should check out Jess of jekuphotography.com. We visited from the Philippines and asked her to take our post wedding photos. Here are some of the woodsy photos that she took. 🙂

5k is a fairly large photography budget, especially for an elopement, which photogs generally charge less for than a full wedding. CA is pricey, though. I ended up choosing a photographer from another state and then paid his travel fees – his work was top notch and it was still only 4k which was way less than anyone local I found whose work I liked.

Nirav Patel takes exceptional pictures, especially of weddings in forests/nature, and is based in SF.  Had we gotten married in the states, he is unquestionably the person I would have chosen for our elopement.

jadeforest :  I know a photographer who specializes in elopements in the Redwoods. You should send her a message! She helps with locations and permitting and stuff – I’m not sure if I can link her here, but if you search S Photography Elopements, she should come up. She’s based out of southern Oregon and should be in your budget.

My husband and I are wedding videographers and would love to capture this for you! We have been on the search for a couple doing an intimate ceremony like yours. Let me know if you’d be interested!? Hugs!
