We love taking portraits, so elopement sessions are one of our favorite types of event! The bride and groom look stunning and we get so much time to play and try out different ideas. Matt and Erika chose Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria–a hidden garden oasis–to elope and it was beautiful! We enjoyed sharing the experience with them and their officiant and learning about their story. I loved how effortless they seem to be–once they got together, they knew it was inevitable that they’d get married and just started talking about it one day. No engagement ring, no frills–just a lot of love between them. We love these photos and how fun and natural they looked on their wedding day!
