Elopements aren’t just for the movies, and amid the global uncertainties of the past year and the new wedding-planning nuances that came along with them, more couples have been opting instead for sweet weddings for two. This modern beach elopement styled shoot was captured by Esther Makau Photography in her signature candid, airy style. Esther Makau is passionate about freezing moments in time by taking candid wedding photos that tell a couple’s unique love story. “Timeless, romantic and candid moments are captured because of a couple’s connection with each other and their photographer. Your memories are as important to me as they are to you,” explains Esther. As you scroll through the photos from this shoot, you’ll almost feel the ocean breeze and the love and laughter shared between the bride and groom.
This inspo-worthy shoot is the perfect blend of modern and timeless! Our bride opted for a dazzling short, sequined mini dress by Vera Wang with a delicate jeweled belt. The white sequins bring the perfect amount of chic to the beach. Its draped, flowy fit, and open back add an air of oceanside romance. To match the beach elopement style, the bride wore her hair in loose, textured waves that look so natural. Then, her soft makeup polishes the look. The groom’s classic-meets-modern black and white style coordinates perfectly with his bride.
