We are Lisa and Simon – a photography duo and experience co-creators to your once-in-a-lifetime elopement adventure!

We understand that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and we strive to make it a truly memorable experience.

Our focus is on capturing the raw, authentic moments that make your love story unique. We don’t just take photographs; we tell stories.

Our passion for nature and adventure means that we love to take our couples to beautiful, wild locations to exchange their vows. We believe that the backdrop for your wedding should be as breathtaking as the love that you share. Whether you’re looking for a mountaintop ceremony or a secluded beach elopement, we can help you find the perfect spot.

With us, you can forget about the stress and expectations of a traditional wedding. We want you to feel free to be yourselves and enjoy every moment of your elopement. We’ll be there to capture the laughter, tears, and all the beautiful moments in between.

We pride ourselves on our personal approach to elopements. We keep our client list small so that we can give each couple the attention and care that they deserve. We take the time to get to know you, understand your vision, and help you create a day that feels truly authentic and meaningful.

If you’re looking for a unique, adventurous, and unforgettable way to celebrate your love, we would be honored to help you plan and capture your elopement.

Hiring Pacific Vows for our elopement was literally the best money I've ever spent. We wanted our day to be about us and no one else, but I wanted lasting memories of how much we love each other. My husband and I went through a lot of life trials before finding each other, and we have a bond closer than most couples we meet. I was wondering how well that would come through in our pictures. Lisa and Simon more than delivered. Not only was our day completely stress-free, but I have never seen a single wedding photo I love more than any of ours. The pictures speak for themselves, and there's so many more I didn't add here. Best day ever playing in the ocean with my best friend. No matter how you are doing your wedding, hire Pacific Vows. Thank you so much Lisa and Simon! We still cry looking at these.

We are so happy we found Lisa & Simon in San Diego! Right from our very first zoom call we knew they’d make our elopement magical. We had no idea where to begin and they helped build out our entire timeline, advising us on different options we hadn’t even thought of. They were so comfortable to chat with and so very sweet. Such a talented duo! The photos were absolutely stunning! We got our sneak peak and full gallery SO fast!! We had to change a few plans last minute and they were quick to help and even found us a beautiful hidden location at the Del for our sneak peak! We can’t thank you both enough for your phenomenal work. Highly highly recommend to anyone!

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 Lisa 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!

We met with Lisa and Simon about a year ago for our engagement session which went absolutely amazing, this is when I knew for sure that it was a match, on both professional and personal levels. I have never been shot by anyone but my friend so I was anxious at first, but my worries immediately vanished when we started working with Lisa. She was helping us a lot, because my husband is a very awkward model, too, but when we saw the result of her work, we realized we weren't posing at all. All the pictures looked very lively and that was essentially what we were looking for.
Eventually we became really good friends with Lisa and Simon, which I guess wasn't really a part of our package deal :D Human connection is priceless <3
On our wedding day, our friends/ photographers did an unprecedented job. Not only did they take the most terrific pictures of us and our new family, but they also helped us manage the stress of this wonderful yet hectic day. Also, a piece of wisdom Liza shared with me for all the brides out there who are having a big wedding: do your first look before the ceremony! I was dreaming of my husband seeing me the first time in my wedding dress at the altar, but Lisa told me that this is the sacred moment that better be captured privately. I gave in and never regretted it once. His reaction on our pictures turned out to be so touching and sweet, we both cried.
The day was going by so fast, we were having so much fun, and at some point Lisa pulled me over saying that the sun is setting in the mountains so beautifully, that we have to take a picture. We didn't really want to stop dancing :D but now I'm really grateful that we did it, because it was indeed a breathtaking view of our beautiful Utahn scenery.
To sum it up, I just want to say that it took me a while to write this review, meaning that Lisa and Simon made a huge step forward after our wedding and they just keep getting better and better, so if you're reading this thinking whether you should book them or not, I'm sure I've made it easier for you :)
