Erika & Evan were in for a surprise when they drove from New Jersey to Canaan Valley, WV in late April for their elopement — not only were the trees still naked from the winter, it was also very windy and the temperature was hovering around freezing. Brrr!!
Despite mother nature’s curveball, Erika & Evan were all smiles and warmth. We loved that they included their (super smart and well behaved) spaniel, Charlie.
Elopements are one of our very favorite things to photograph. We really get to know couples during their elopement coverage, and we’re often the only people there to help with little things like zipping up the dress & pinning the boutonniere. The photos we take are the only way for their friends and families to get a feel for their day afterwards. Elopements hit us right in the feels.
Here are our favorite photos from Erika & Evan’s windy, blustery elopement at Black Bear Resort in Davis, West Virginia.
