A Beach Elopement Session | Miami, FL Family Photographer

A Gorgeous Elopement at Haulover Beach

Rachel contacted me a while back about a photo session on the beach. And then she casually mentioned that she and her fiancé, Richard, were going to be eloping on the beach with their almost two-year-old and would I be interested in documenting that? YES! Having also eschewed a big wedding for a private elopement, I was all in!

They got married on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. Despite the beach being crowded, they found a beautiful secluded spot on a jetty for the ceremony. Rachel was absolutely stunning and both she and Rich were so relaxed and happy about this momentous event. Being a witness to such an authentic and private wedding ceremony was really special. Little Jaxson sat happily nearby in a child size camp chair with some snacks and a few toys while his parents exchanged vows. 

After the ceremony (and a couple of diaper changes), we took some casual portraits on the beach and got soaked by some huge waves. Congratulations, Rachel and Rich!
