California Wedding & Elopement Photographer

California Intimate weddings & elopements Photographer

Elope definition. Elope. Elopement. What does the word Elopement mean? What do you picture when you think of the word?
If you’re like me you might picture your parents sneaking away in the middle of the night in secrecy, not telling their parents and running of to Las Vegas and getting married at The Little White Chapel. Or maybe two people heading over to the local court house for a quick ceremony.
I promise if you are thinking any of this that you are not alone, it’s what I even thought at one time. After over 10 years of photographing big weddings, in 2018 I had photographer my first true elopement in Big Sur and I have to say I fell in love with elopements, the beauty of the day just small, the intimate moments, everything being so meaningful, it is truly an authentic wedding experience that reflects the couples and focuses on them and their love story. I have never seen a couple so stress free and care free on a wedding day, I thought to myself that’s how all wedding days should be.
People usually think that elopements are these last-minute, no-frills kind of thing, but elopements are not normally a last-minute Idea, I mean sure you can go down to the courthouse but why get married in an ugly small room that has no meaning to you, or you can hire a wedding officiant to marry you in an epic location like Joshua Tree or Yosemite, really the possibilities are endless and it’s better than any courthouse.
Save yourself the stress, it doesn’t matter what anyone else wants, keep your day about you.
An elopement is about stripping away every ounce of pressure, anxiety, or obligation that has ever tried to weigh you down. An elopement grants you the absolute freedom to commit your life to your partner however and wherever you choose.
Why not Have THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT
What could be more epic than getting married in one of the most beautiful places on earth? Well, you pretty much can with all the amazing National Parks out there you have a lot of choices.
As an elopement photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting many parks while working, but also just for fun. I’ve had the privilege of viewing some incredible landscapes with some of my for adventure elopements and small weddings.

Paragraph

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and boy do my groom and I have a million beautiful words to say about our wedding, thanks to Jason. This is the vendor who I feel as though the photos say more than my words ever could. My husband and I are beyond thankful for the thoughtfulness Jason gifted us with in his ability to dig deep and show the love of two people who hate taking photos. Jason made us feel comfortable and confident. We cannot thank him enough for all the special memories that he captured. This feels like not enough because he captured our memories BEAUTIFULLY! He truly understood who we were as couple and captured our memories in ways that's we cannot even describe. Thank you Jason!

 -Daniel & Merceades

Jason was absolutely amazing in every way. Our photos are incredible, he was so easy to be around and beyond helpful throughout the whole day. We eloped in Big Sur, so it was only the two of us. Jason and Billy were great in helping us scout photo spots and the ceremony location the day before our ceremony. The day of, they were early (a PLUS), Jason took charge and got the photos he knew we wanted, he helped us move along the timeline to make sure we fit everything in that we wanted to do, and he took the most beautiful photos. We are beyond happy that we chose Jason for our wedding day. He also sent us a sneak peek within a few days and we have gotten our full set of photos back already (only 2 weeks later!). We don't have enough good things to say about Jason. He was relaxed, but professional, easygoing, made us laugh, got all the shots we wanted, and more.   

 - Kevin & Carly

 There are not enough words to express how truly thankful we are that we found Jason. He was such a pleasure to work with - from our engagement session in Big Bear to our wedding day in Temecula. Jason was so personable, easy to work with, quick to respond to any and all questions/e-mails, and truly so so talented. I also have to point out that his turnaround time is incredible - we got our entire wedding gallery two and a half weeks after our wedding - AMAZING! He is so passionate about what he does and it really shows through in his work. His photographs are each a piece of art - from the way he carefully catches the rays of sunshine coming through the trees, to the fleeting and oh so cherished moments of raw emotion from the wedding day. These are memories (and photos) that will now last a lifetime. My sister asked me for my favorite photo and it is impossible for me to pick just 1, because I am so impressed with all of his work! I am so happy that we chose Jason to photograph our wedding. I am honestly a bit sad that our time working with Jason has come to an end, If I could have him photograph every milestone I would! Thank you Jason for sharing you talent with us and for providing such beautiful photos! For anyone considering Jason for your wedding, do yourselves a favor and book him - you will not be disappointed!

 - Cecil & Michelle

We feel so lucky to have Jason as our photographer for our wedding and engagement photos. After meeting Jason for the first time we knew we wanted to work with him. He's very easy to work with, incredibly talented, and has a great personality. Jason and his team made us feel really comfortable and they went above and beyond in guiding us through the day. For our wedding, he was able to capture all the details, emotions, and events of the day. His work is absolutely amazing and we are so happy with the way our photos came out.

Jason was the most amazing photographer to work with! Our engagement and wedding photos were beyond fabulous, and I would recommend him to anyone!!! He is very professional and so accommodating. I cry every time I look at our wedding photos, because he truly captured every moment. He even does a slide show for you with music. For a couple who decided against a videographer, we were so happy with how he captured our day! Jason is above 5 stars, and you shouldn't look anywhere else for amazing quality photos! 

 - April & Franco

Jason is not only a phenomenal photographer, he is also an amazing person. He was so patient and sweet with the chaos of our families and the goofiness of my husband and I. We knew after our engagement shoot that we had made a great choice choosing Jason as our photographer. For two people who do not consider themselves photogenic, Jason got some great shots of us. His attention to detail is impeccable. Our day was such a whirlwind that I was not able to see a lot of things. It was so nice to get our pictures and see that Jason made the effort to capture every little detail. For that, I am eternally grateful. Your pictures is what you will always have to look back on your big day, make sure you choose a great photographer like Jason to capture it all. You will NOT be disappointed!

I cannot say enough great things about Jason Burns. He is extremely professional, responsive, and friendly and he gave my husband and I photographs of a lifetime. We receive endless compliments on how amazing our photos came out for both our engagement and wedding day often saying how they’ve never seen such beautiful wedding photos and that they look like they came from a bridal magazine. Jason is great to work with and his talent and artistic eye is truly in a league of his own. To even more amazement, he gave us a thoughtful photo box with our USB and a ring holder as a wonderful gift. When creating our photo album he let us work collaboratively on creating it and making it a lifetime keepsake. It was difficult choosing which photos to use because every single photo that he gave back to us was stunning. We would absolutely recommend him and will being using him for all of our future big life moments

 - Stephanie & Chris

Jason is awesome, not only is he an amazing photographer, but he’s very friendly and professional. I’d never had professional photos taken so I was a little nervous at first, but Jason made my husband and I feel really relaxed and got a lot of natural and romantic photos of us during our engagement shoot. Also, prior to our wedding day he went over a list of all the photos that we had to have to ensure we didn’t miss anything. And we couldn’t be happier with the results, we got all the photos we told him we wanted, and so much more. I think it’s rare to find someone so talented that is at the same time extremely professional and organized. You can tell he enjoys his work and really wants his customers to have beautiful photos that they’ll appreciate for a lifetime
