Samantha and Jonathan: Blush Spring Elopement in Audubon Park

filed in

Springtime in the city! The sun is shining, everything is growing back and all the leaves are lush green. I love it! And you may look at these shots and think “wow, it’s so nice and warm there!” but on this day it was quite the opposite. The high was 50 during their ceremony! And although it was chilly the day was still perfect.

Samantha and Jonathan are two sweethearts from South Dakota who opted to forgo the traditional wedding for a sweet, intimate elopement in the Big Easy. I had so much fun with these two and Samantha has the BEST smile! I squealed just about every time I caught it!

You can witness all the love, snuggles, and joy from the day below! It was truly an amazing time and I loved everything about it!

Swoon! I had the hardest time not shedding a few tears myself! Especially after listening to the personal vows they wrote for each other!

Okay I think we can all agree on this: Samantha’s smile is absolutely infectious and this shot has become my all time favorite one captured!

Congratulations Samantha and Jonathan! I had such an amazing time laughing and exploring the park with the two of you! It was truly an honor to be there at the start of your marriage!

Wishing you both a lifetime of love and laughter,
