Elopement: Tonya & Steve | Lutsen Wedding Photographer
This wedding was SO amazing. Kyle and I both agreed that if we were getting married today, this would be what we would do. This is by far more of the "elopement" of the modern day than a traditional wedding, and we loved every minute of it.
Tonya and Steve opted to be married in an intimate ceremony hidden away in the woods of Lutsen. Seriously, when we found the cabin they were married at, we wouldn't have known it was there without being told the address. It was very secluded. Their ceremony was gorgeous, having the woods as a backdrop.
After the ceremony, they did any photographer's dream. They spent nearly two hours hiking into the beautiful cliffs and taking part in an amazing set of couple's portraits. Honestly, if I hired a photographer, this is what I would hire them for and we got so many beautiful shots for them.
It got better. When we got back to the cabin for dinner, the family had made them a huge dinner of homemade tacos and a big brownie in place of a wedding cake. Going to a wedding, hiking for hours to shoot a couple by waterfalls and cliffs, only to then go back and have tacos, is INCREDIBLE.
Loved these two. We want all weddings we shoot to be this loving and fun.
