Adventurous Elopements & Intimate Destination Weddings

in Northern california

Ok, so you have seen those majestic redwood trees online. You kinda really don't believe they exist. You wanna book a trip and explore them and think, “Man it would be SO magical to elope underneath the canopy of those living, breathing majestic beings. Buuuuuttttt you have no idea where to start. Which grove should you choose? Redwood National Park? Or Humboldt Redwoods State Park? Ahhh! Sooooooo many decisions! How does this all work? I just get married and then I am done? How do I celebrate?

Hi! I am Briar of Parky’s Pics Photography! I am here to help you navigate your amazing redwood elopement! I I live right smack dab in the middle of those larger than life, majestic giants you see online. I love nothing more than exploring them for the first time with clients who have never seen them before. To hear them gasp and squeal in excitement as they take in the sights of a silent, spiritual redwood forest carpeted in rich green clovers and soft beautiful ferns. The journey doesn’t stop here. You can elope in a private ceremony surrounded by a cathedral of redwood trees. After your ceremony is complete, I can show you what else the famous Humboldt County has to offer. Looking for an adventure of a lifetime? Humboldt County is one of the most beautiful places on earth. My house is 5 minutes from Humboldt Redwoods State Park, and the famous Avenue of the Giants. It’s a quick trip to the beautiful mountain ranges of the Lost Coast and beyond. There are also amazing stretches of rugged beaches full with beautiful rocks like in the Goonies! Not far away are the famous black sands beach of Shelter Cove. The tiny sea side home of Northern California’s most remote coastline. No overcrowded beaches here! There is nothing like a black sand beach and a beautiful sunset to make a wedding dress pop!To the north are more majestic redwood trees, as well as the popular beaches of Trinidad State Beach, Moonstone Beach, Patrick’s Point, and Wedding Rock. There is no shortage of amazing hikes and locations!  If you are looking for someone who can guide you every step of the way in your elopement process, who knows the ins and outs of the redwood forests, who loves shooting wedding days that are all about the couple and their authentic love for each other...then you have come to the right place.
