Convict Lake Elopement Photographer with Alexandra & Eric | Mammoth Lakes, California

June 8, 2020

Alexandra and Eric were scheduled to throw a killer wedding celebration in the Mammoth Lakes area with family coming from all over the world in late May but…2020 happened.

Luckily they were ready for Plan B, or maybe it was Plan E, and I don’t think they would change a thing. Minus the whole wedding cancellation part.

The wedding-to-elopement transition is one wedding vendors all over the world are getting accustomed to right now and if the first one was any indicator, I think it’s going to be a pretty cool substitute.

We started off with a first look in Old Mammoth before heading down to a very windy Convict Lake for the ceremony.

They had a close friend officiate the ceremony and the incredible Felici Trio serenaded us as Alexandra walked down to meet Eric on the beach.

After a quick ceremony, the Felicis did one more song for their first dance, and then we set out to walk around the lake to catch those elusive but spectacular final rays of Convict Lake light.

When we had exhausted our time there we headed out to Hot Creek to catch a second sunset in one of the Eastern Sierra’s most dramatic vistas and it delivered despite the wind.

It looks like small adventure sessions and elopements like this are going to be pretty common for a little while and we couldn’t be more excited about substituting big weddings for days like this for a while. If something like this seems like a good option, get in touch right here. I’d love to help you find an epic location to do it, as well as the right combination of vendors to make this downsized celebration as memorable and as YOU as we can.
