Hey! We’re Becky & Brian, your Big Sur elopement photographers…

We’re a couple of adventure elopement photographers, officiant, WFR certified (like EMT, but for out in the wilderness! (aka we can keep you safe!)), van dwelling, adventure seekers.

Elopements are so much more than just saying your vows and getting hitched. They’re about having an adventure and creating an experience that you’ll never forget. You might be feeling a little overwhelmed with the amount of information out there these days and we totally understand. Let us help simplify things and make it an easy, fun, and awesome experience!

Let’s get your adventure started!

Ok, you’re probably thinking, “Yes these people get it! What do I do next?”  In honor of keeping things easy and fun, we’ll walk you through the following steps so that you can have a unique and intimate elopement day!

Tin can phone,  oldschool!

1. Reach Out

Schedule a time to chat! We think it’s super important for us all to get to know each other before deciding to work together! We want you to feel a connection and to make sure we all vibe with each other!

2. Get Booked!

Lock in your date! After we chat all you need to do is pick a date for your epic experience and book us as your elopement photographers! We’ll get the ball rolling and start making some plans!

The most important tool for Scenic Vows,  our cameras!

3. Big Day!

Count down the days to your elopement! We’ll explore all the possible activities and help you craft your day! And then, once all the details are sorted out, all there is to do is sit back and get psyched!


Elopements look different for each and every couple because your love story is unique and special. There is only one thing all the elopements we photograph have in common and that is that they take place outside in nature! If you are picturing an intimate day surrounded by wilderness, adventuring with your partner, and taking it all in, then we’ll be a perfect match!
