All-Inclusive Officiant + Elopement Photographer Service in West Coast + Hawaii

We believe that the best weddings are created by couples who celebrate their love and commitment to each other in a way that’s true to who they are.

Elopements and Intimate Weddings allow you to create your meaningful adventure with only the people and experiences you truly want to be a part of your day.

What makes your own relationship unique? What gets you excited? Maybe you like to hike to epic places, snowboard, have an off-road adventure, have a picnic, or spend time in a backyard of a cabin in the woods by the campfire together.

However you imagine your day, you can make it happen. There are no rules. That’s why we believe elopements are the best way to get married. And we’d be honored to capture every beautiful moment of your elopement adventure.

BUT - you would never know it from the photos that Liz took of us!!! She made us look so. freaking. good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10000000% recommend them to anyone for proposal/engagement/elopement photos - so worth it. She promised a 1 week turnaround and we got them back in 4 days.

The dream team 🤍

To say they are great is an understatement, Lisa and Simon you guys are the sweetest team I have ever had the pleasure of spending my hard earned money on. You guys are so creative, so imaginative and did above and beyond what I was hoping. Marrying like this has always been a fantasy that people assumed was ridiculous and off catch. You guys heard my wants and executed as well as exceeded. Your guidance as to take what I had in my head as a fantasy to create reality has been the best wish anyone could have ever granted for me and you have changed the life of my now husband and I. I 1000% recommended you guys, had I not randomly found you on my Instagram as I stalked wedding pictures after I was freshly engaged as to what I wanted, this dream would have never come true. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart 🤍 You have made me feel wayyy cooler than I really am and thanks to you feel like the most beautiful person I never thought I could be. Thank you for creating my adventure with my best friend 🥹💕

Amazing experience!

My then fiancé, now husband, and I knew ahead of time we didn’t want a big wedding just something small and intimate with the people we love.

I was researching online and I ran across Pacific Vows and I thought they looked great. My husband contacted them for pricing and we decided to go with them with their middle package.

Simon and Liza were very communicative with us with what we wanted, what they have done for other couples, location examples, and just what we can expect overall. They sent us some locations in San Diego, CA that we checked out as we knew we wanted something nearby. We decided on Sunset Cliffs which is BEAUTIFUL.

The day of, we met up with them and they really made the first look and overall all the photos so comfortable natural. This was truly our first professional photoshoot that we’ve done, and I feel it went great. After the ceremony my husband and I decided to spend the remainder of our photo session time at Disneyland.

They met us there and they just let us do our thing and even gave great photo ideas throughout our time there. While there we got a sneak peak of some of our ceremony photos, and they looked AMAZING!!!!

Once all the photos were ready they let us know via text that they sent us the rest of the photos to our email and those photos were perfect!!!

It was truly an amazing experience and I am so happy we went with them. If you want a small intimate wedding and amazing photos Pacific Vows is the way to go!

Hi, I'm Elizabeth (or just Liza)

I've been photographing weddings, elopements, and engagements since 2016.

Documenting life is a gratifying thing to do for a living. I get to meet all sorts of people and make them feel comfortable enough to be themselves in front of my camera. My number one priority is capturing you, maybe just you - perhaps you and your love - m your son or daughter - or maybe you and all your friends and family on the best day of your life. I am so grateful to my clients for trusting me enough with these moments and hope you will too.
