Stephanie Hopkins Photography beautifully captured Lauren-Terry Elopement-Olympia’s Valley Estate in Petaluma, CA, US. In addition, Stephanie provided a beautiful recap of the day below. Stephanie met Lauren through another bride she photographed a year before and that bride was an officiant in Lauren and Terry’s Elopement.

From Stephanie Hopkins Photography: Lauren-Terry Elopement-Olympia’s Valley Estate

An hour after their first date Terry texted Lauren and asked “So when are we getting married?” Now nearly two years later, they are wed! Driving through the back country of Petaluma, it was such a relaxing Thursday afternoon. It was a little overcast, and so gorgeous! Cows were out grazing, and as I turned in to the entrance for the elopement at Olympia’s Valley Estate, I took in the view as I do every time I return. It is such an amazing venue!

Lauren and Terry chose to have an intimate wedding, with just a small group of friends. In fact, the bride I photographed last year (and how I met Lauren) was officiating! It was truly the perfect day for both of them.

I shot their engagement session, so it felt so comforting to see them again, excited for this moment for months! Lauren had her hair done by the woman who has done her hair all her life, and Terry got ready with the friend who introduced him to his future bride.

It was such an honor to watch them walk in together, and with their friends as witnesses, exchanged vows and spoke from their heart about how they felt so lucky to have found each other.

Then came time for them to get a little adventurous! They got in the canoe together, their first act as husband and wife. It is so fitting for them as they share a love of fishing, canoeing and camping.

Side note, Lauren’s sparkly Kate Spade Keds? Seriously awesome! She also made her bouquet and Terry’s.

I did it! I finally did it! For over 3 years now, I have been putting off getting updated headshots. It’s ridiculous, really…I mean, come on…it’s not like I don’t see people in real life daily, but somehow photos make your insecurities feel that much more real. I’ve been taking business courses for the last couple of months, and one of the things they all keep repeating is how I need to put myself out there. I may be a photographer so showcasing my art is important, but I am the person you meet, work with, befriend, and trust so it’s just as important for me to show you ME. Just know, it may seem silly but holy wow guys, this was hard! Thankfully, @nanasplitz did an amazing job on my hair, @mua.samanthak rocked my makeup (it was so awesome to finally meet you in person and talk shop and life!) and @janeagreenecreative reminded me the lengths we all go as photographers to make our clients feel at ease! So…let’s get to know each other a little better! Tell me something silly/scary you’ve been putting off! {Funny back story to this photo- Janea and I were just waking down a random street in Berkeley, and saw a sign that said “Park, open to all” so we went in to check it out…she found this awesome bush of green leaves, and behind it? A wonderfully friendly homeless man sitting on a bench. So yeah, part of my smile is from a giggle when I realized when she said to stick my butt back, it was probably right in his face 🤣} Huge shout out to @mrslindseyroman who I just love to follow…it was your IG guide that made me suck it up and get some photos taken of myself! Lol
