An Intimate California Elopement & Sequoia Bridal Portraits

Hanna and Mariano’s California elopement at Starview Ranch was such an experience! It was so beautiful, and they chose such a gorgeous location to have such an intimate ceremony. It was just 25 of their closest friends and family in attendance, which was perfect! This location offers gorgeous valley views and such a serene atmosphere. We even got some beautiful portraits of the two at Sequoia National Park! If you’re looking for some inspiration for your own elopement, scroll on, because you don’t want to miss this one!

Hanna and Mariano’s Intimate Elopement & Sequoia Bridal Portraits

Hanna and Mariano were very relaxed for their wedding day. They had their first looks at the property and then them, their bridal party, and family all hopped into Hanna’s dad’s RV and we headed an hour to Sequoia National Park for some portraits! Hanna and Mariano really wanted to have some big Sequoia tree’s as a backdrop for their portraits, and it was certainly worth the drive! Then we all headed back to Starview Ranch and they had such an intimate ceremony with their family and friends followed by some more portraits during sunset. We even got some photos with them and their Toyota Land Cruiser, which they exited in at the end of the night! It was truly such a romantic and intimate California elopement, and one I will always remember! Not just for the views, but the love Hanna and Mariano share is unforgettable.

Kind Words From Hanna & Mariano

“If you are looking for an invested photographer to capture your special day, or even a shoot of your family, Alyssa is where it is at! She was amazing for our wedding, spending over 8 hours running around in 100 degree weather to capture every moment! She remembered to capture every scene that we had mentioned was important to us and did a beautiful job with the colors of the outdoors and getting the right angles. Not to mention receiving a personalized usb and wooden box for our memories after it is all said and done. You can count on her to be thoughtful, strategic, and bring a nervous bride some ease. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for amazing photos, I mean her portfolio speaks for itself.”
