Santa Monica Elopement by Savan Photography

Everybody knows how much we LOVE elopements here at Joy Wed and today's beautiful Santa Monica Elopement by Savan Photography is no exception. This real elopement has to be one of the sweetest we've seen! We absolutely adore this couples relaxed yet elegant style, the brides beautiful floral pieces and their obvious love for each other. Captured perfectly on film, these images are leaving us yearning for more!

From photographer Savan Crutchfield: This sweet and amazing couple honored their own style and carefree, free spirited souls by eloping in the middle of the Santa Monica surrounded by their love of nature.

Bailey was a gorgeous bride and worn a stunning and modern dress from Park Fifth and Co which are also local designers from their home town of Vancouver, Canada.  Rhys went a classic strip blue suite with timeless brown dress shoes.

She paired their style with amazing florals from the crown collective that matched her free boho spirit.

These two are made for each other and I was grateful, humbled and most importantly honored to document their beautiful and intimate elopement.

I shoot FILM. Old school, but the best school.

Within the saturated photography world, 99% of photographer shoots digital and its so rare to find someone who still shoots film. Its so different and special I guess thats what makes my work more unique and refined. As much as I love and adore Film I also depend on digital for the fast pace wedding day and low light situations.

I’m fully taken by FILM photography. The richness, colors, depth, tones (don’t even get me started on skin tones) and dynamic range. The true to life tangable image that was stamped on film vs. a JPEG file.

So this is me not your average “bargain photographer” not just snapping the normal photos, you choose me because you want soul and meaning behind each photo from the smallest details to the biggest smiles. I want to curate timeless images for you and your family the best way that I know how which is completely on FILM.
