California Based

Boho Elopement Photographer

for a different wedding experience

that embraces your

free spirit

You don't want a wedding that will box you in

you crave something different


❁ Imagine a wedding day that embraces all the spontaneous fun, adventure, and beautiful outdoor scenes your heart desires

❁ Envision a day so carefree and full of laughter that you can’t help but love every minute of it

❁ Visualize a day where you feel no pressure, no judgment, just the sense that you can live out every whim uninhibited.

"I was speechless at how you captured me in your photos that day, they were raw, honest, and beautiful."



Ditchthe templatetradition.

Let's focus on what really matters and create a different kind of wedding experience that matches your fun lifestyle.




  • wasting time and resources on a wedding you aren't even excited about with investing in the most epic twenty-four-hours you two have ever had
  • getting stuck living out someone else's dream with feeling free to embrace your own without judgement
  • feeling rushed through what is supposed to be the most exciting day of your life with making the day intentional, meaningful, and playful
  • being shuffled around and forced to have fun on a schedule by ditching the traditional template and embracing a magical day centered around you two

On your elopement day, I'm more than just your photographer. I want to share all my insights I've developed over the years to help you design a day that just feels right.



You deserve:

  • a wedding day full of spontaneous fun, adventure, and the great outdoors
  • a day filled with so much laughter and love you can't help but adore every second of it
  • a photographer who encourages you to live out every whim uninhibited without judgement
Enjoyevery momenttears of joy.

The beauty of elopements is that each one is unique, just like your love. Your wedding should be a refection of who you are and your values.


Imagine having the freedom to:

  • enjoy moments with overwhelming beauty and emotion, with no timeline or expectations
  • express your love and vows without pressure --it's just you two, there's no need to hold back or censor your real-life kind of love
  • celebrate your commitment to each other on a day filled with intention and living in the moment

"Joni made me feel like it was ok to be myself."
