This styled camper van elopement shoot by Vancouver Island based wedding photographer, is bursting with inspiration for any of you wild-at-heart couples who are planning a camper van elopement.
Inspired by the people and landscape of the west coast of Vancouver Island, this dreamy elopement pays homage to love, nature and adventure. The couple featured in the shoot are world travellers Luka and Hayley, whose free-spirit fits the vibe of the day perfectly.
The shoot was set on Sombrio Beach, which is a 3-day hike along the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island. Famed for its sunsets, rolling fog and jagged shoreline, Sombrio Beach has long called surfers the world over. But it’s a little known spot for those seeking out a private setting for an elopement.
With its heavenly mix of both lush forest and fiery coastline, this location proved perfect for this evocative shoot. Especially so as Mother Nature gave wedding photographer Kim a curveball to work with on the day. Rather than the summer sunset that she was hoping for, Kim’s shoot was shrouded in an eerie fog. But that didn’t dampen things one bit. Instead it contributed to an atmospheric session that is teeming with attitude, personality and pazzazz (we rarely use that word, but this time it seemed apt..!)
All we can say is: absolute wedding goals. As far as cute, intimate elopements go, this inspiration shoot got all our creative juices flowing. Great job, Kim. Thank you so much for sharing this amazing work with the DB&MH tribe!
