Kirsten & Matt’s Palace of Fine Arts Elopement

Kirsten and Matt had always wanted a small wedding, and after nearly a year of planning and waiting, their Palace of Fine Arts elopement day finally arrived! They flew in with their guests and were so prepared it almost seemed like a group of pros — everyone was right on time and knew exactly what to do, and even the ceremony chairs were brought in and set up by the guests and whisked away afterwards just as quickly.

After a short and sweet ceremony with lots of cute smiles and laughs, I took some portraits for the two of them around the Palace of Fine Arts and at the nearby Ocean Beach, where we were greeted with some wind-swept dunes and a quite dramatic sky. I really loved how smiley and lovey-dovey the two were from start to finish, which helped make this a super enjoyable shoot for me. Looking through these photos brings me a lot of happy feelings from the wedding day, and I hope it’ll do the same for you as you scroll down to take a look 🙂

Congratulations Matt and Kirsten!
