Olympic National Park Elopement

Olympic Peninsula Elopement-LizMorrow-91.jpg

I have been best friends with Kristina since we were awkward 13-year-olds (all right, I was way more awkward, okay?). When I became a wedding photographer, she became my model for styled shoots, yoga shoots, boudoir shoots, you name it, but I was always most looking forward to getting to be her photographer for her actual wedding. In December I got to do just that! With a couple close friends, we drove out to my family's waterfront property on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State to participate in her and Joe's elopement. I made her macrame altar backdrop and wooden arch, her bouquet, the flower crowns, and her veil, in addition to capturing it all on camera. My fellow matron of honor, Amy, is a photographer as well, so she was able to shoot a few photos of me walking Kristina down the aisle, and then we swapped again at the end so she could get some shots of me standing beside Kristina during her ceremony too.  Everything about their ceremony was so personal, sacred, and unique.
