Mammoth Lakes Elopement Photographer with Brittany & Jeff | Eastern Sierra, California

July 17, 2020

The wedding industry, like almost everybody else in the world right now, is having a rough 2020.

But I’lll be honest: photographers have it better than any other vendor. Couples are either postponing to 2021 or choosing to elope–AKA get married on a much smaller scale than originally planned.

Unfortunately this means that most of the other vendors are getting cut back this year.

Brittany and Jeff, who were supposed to be joined by 150 of their closest people at June Mountain last month, bucked the trend and included all their original vendors (minus the venue) into their Plan B and it was an incredible day.

No, it wasn’t on the grand scale they spent years planning for, but they had it all: flowers, videography, photography, music, an insanely beautiful ceremony site, coordination, incredible food served up on a ranch in front of a vintage truck, and so much more. It was the blueprint for how to make this sustainable for an entire industry during the pandemic.

Brittany and Jeff took care of us, and I’d like to think our Mammoth crew paid it back with as good an elopement experience as ANYBODY is doing right now. Anywhere.

You’ll see in the photos below, but the hand-picked ceremony site was as epic as any you’ll find in California, our sunset portraits at the end of a long and gnarly dirt road are some of my all-time favorites.

Brittany and Jeff, you have no idea how much we appreciate ya’ll and we all had such a blast with you guys.

Our night session following the elopement is coming up next, check back soon. Thanks.
