Tailoring your Intimate Elopement Details

Amanda’s family grew up visiting Havasu Springs Resort on the regular so when Andy proposed to her in the exact location they were wed, everything fell into place. Before Amanda and Andy read their personalized vows in front of 30 of their closest friends and family, they had all of their guests participate in a ring-warming ceremony. (I have never seen this done before, and honestly, it was so special!) In case you’ve also never heard of this: It’s where each one of their guests and immediate family warms their rings and makes a wish for the happy couple. It symbolizes that these rings will not only be a gift from one to another, but will be given with the love, support, and wisdom of their loved ones. How stinkin’ sweet?!

Capturing the Moments

When photographing this Havasu Springs Resort elopement, careful considerations of composition, light, and color make up the elements of a beautiful and compelling photograph. And often, they align in a blink of an eye. This documentary style approach is what I aim for when capturing the love between two humans, but also understanding what that moment and that photograph mean to a couple in the context of a lifetime. The hard truth is this: I can’t give you forever with the people that weave together the framework of your life, but I can give you the next best thing. And it’s more than just a photo, it’s a feeling.

Cheers to your elopement experience

Havasu Springs Elopement Testimonial:

“I don’t know how else to describe her, Jocelyn is amazing. I found Jocelyn through Instagram and first and foremost fell in love with her style of photography! She has a way of capturing human emotion and scenery that is so special. The entire time she was shooting with us, she was kind, flexible, and fit the group so well! Our wedding party had nothing but incredible things to say about her after the fact as well. The photos came out so beautiful and beyond what I had imagined.”
