Winter Elopement In Elfin Forest
When I first spoke with Rachel and talked with her about a Winter elopement we instantly connected. This is because Rachel is a dog trainer and lover of animals who has over 14 dogs she cares for. As an animal activist and vegetarian myself, check we share many common lifestyle choices and philosophies that made it easy for me to love everything about Rachel and her soon-to-be husband Steven. In fact, online I think we spent more time talking about my barking yorkie Sinatra and ways to cure his woof-idious more than her vision for a relaxed outdoor elopement to take place at the Elfin Forest. Another fun little fact about Rachel is that she is fluent in dog speak as well as Portuguese since she is a native of Brazil! Even though I am a Temecula Wedding Photographer very familiar with most of the local popular photography locations, I had never heard of Elfin Forest. Therefore, I was excited to investigate this new location in Escondido and have the opportunity to photograph it. Here is a brief look at some of the photographs captured of Rachel, Steven and their Winter elopement with Elfin Forest as the backdrop to the beginning of their story as husband and wife.
