Karina + Jon


When Karina and Jon approached me and said they wanted to elope, just the two of them, somewhere beautiful in Tasmania, I could have cried. I find intimate weddings and elopements to be so special and unique – it’s such a privilege to be invited to be the photographer. Our first catch up was basically an hour-long brainstorm of all the amazing places in Tasmania that would be perfect for an elopement. We ended up settling on a stunning location in the south of Tasmania that had rolling hills with thick grass, epic views of Hobart from a unique vantage point and rugged cliffs for us to climb.

This ended up being one of my favourite photoshoots ever. The rustic Airbnb made for the perfect spot to get ready and do our first look (even if we had to climb over fences to do it!). We had the ceremony at the top of hill with a 360 degree view of the surrounding hills. The great thing about elopements is that you can have your ceremony wherever you want! There’s no need to worry about chairs or accessibility, it’s all about – where is the best lighting and the most amazing views? Afterwards we raced down the hill to the cliffs to watch the sunset. Those burnt orange rocks paired with the warm Spring sunset is what I like to call ‘Tone Zone’!

***FEATURE*** – This elopement was so awesome that Together Journal have featured it on their website. Check it out here.
