Anna and Breit had originally planned to get married later on in the year with a big celebration surrounded by their family and friends. However like many other brides and grooms this year, with the recent pandemic and the uncertainty of if they would even be able to have a big celebration, they thought why wait when they can get married now? They reached out to me asking to be their Washington Coast Elopement Photographer, and OF COURSE I said “heck yea!” A week later they got married in court and trekked their way to the Washington coast near La Push, WA for an epic elopement.

Ruby Beach is an amazing destination for Washington Elopements

When I met up with Anna and Breit at the parking lot, it’s crazy to think that this was the first time that we ever met in person. We just automatically clicked like we’ve been friends forever. I absolutely LOVE IT when I feel that genuine connection with my couples! Anna was in this gorgeous gown that she surprisingly found off of Facebook Marketplace. The whole time there she kept getting questions of where she bought her gown! Breit was suited up in a jacket and pants ensemble, looking dapper as ever.

When we trekked our way towards Ruby Beach, you could just feel the excitement that they were finally Mr. and Mrs.! We got to the beach and you could see the fog making its way around the cascading rock formations and hear the sound of the waves crashing. Even though there was no sun in sight, Ruby Beach is just as beautiful as ever with its moody, coastal vibes.

I could feel so much love, happiness, and excitement the entire time. Anna is from Okinawa, Japan and that’s how her and Breit met while he was stationed there for the military. Being together for more than 5 years and having to go through many deployments, they both knew it was the right time to tie the knot. I absolutely LOVED how Anna and Breit went with the flow. Anna wore hiking boots and eventually went barefoot. They braved the misty weather that got them completely soaked. They even GOT IN THE WATER, like whaaat?! To many, the weather conditions wouldn’t be an ideal one to get married but it was absolutely perfect for Anna and Breit. And I was absolutely honored to be their Ruby Beach Elopement Photographer.

I stumbled upon Vikki on Instagram and her portfolio was what drew me in. From the beginning, communication was breeze. The many emails that we exchanged felt like she was a friend I’d already known. When the day came for our wedding shoot, there was no awkwardness, she was helpful in directing us how to stand and pose, and as an added bonus, she was the best hype woman ever!

Vikki captured moments at our wedding reception. I don't even know where to start with my experience with her! I absolutely loved every moment working with her. My husband and I can't thank her enough for working with us. She made the moments enjoyable and truly captured real moments. She is amazing, fun, and patient! Her work is amazing. I would highly recommend her!

"I absolutely loved every moment..."

Vikki worked her magic and our photos turned out AMAZING. They are better than we could have ever imagined. She is so fun and comfortable to work with, which is something extremely important to getting natural, beautiful photos!! All in all, such a fun person to work with, a memorable experience, and truly beautiful photos. Cannot recommend her enough.

"...a memorable experience and truly beautiful photos."

After going through the process of researching, I quickly realized that it's so so important to choose someone you connect with. From the get go, we were both so glad that we found Vikki. When we received our gallery we were speechless. We also sent our gallery to family/friends and told us that they were speechless & cried while doing so. How do you rate perfection? 5 stars isn't enough. Bride (and Grooms), if you are looking for a photographer, you WILL NOT regret hiring Vikki.
