California Elopement Photographer

We're happy you're here! Angie is the planner and the photographer. Lee is the videographer, officiant and live musician. Together, we make one incredible elopement day team.

We specialize in elopements throughout breathtaking Northern California.

Hey! We’re Angie + Lee!

California elopement Photographer + Videographer

In truth, we are adventurers to our core and wanderlust runs through our veins. Our journey began when we sold our house, bought an RV and hit the road for a music tour! We played live music in countless venues for ten years while exploring every inch of the US and National Parks along the way. We fell in love with the great outdoors, so much so that we began documenting our adventures through photography.

Over time we started capturing other couples' journeys, leading us to our passion for adventure elopements, wedding photography and videography. Creating an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime wedding experience for couples just like us is a dream come true!

We're thrilled to call NorCal our forever home as husband and wife, but it wasn't always that way.

(You are also more than welcome to bring along friends and family if you wish!) Our customizable California elopement packages can include elopement wedding photography and videography, an elopement location guide, live music, an officiant, picnic lunches, a champagne toast and more! As your elopement planner in Lake Tahoe and NorCal, we'll help create your dream elopement day experience.

Elopement & Wedding Photography


If photos are worth a thousand words, what is a video worth? To us, wedding cinematography is priceless. Wedding photography freezes a snapshot in time, allowing you to display it on walls and in albums. Meanwhile, wedding videography transports you to the moment where it all began. Hear the pride in your parents' voices, relive the tears of joy, and commemorate your first kiss as a married couple.

Wedding + Elopement Testimonials

So far, we've had the pleasure of documenting over 300 weddings and elopements— here’s what a few of them had to say!

"I contacted Angie because of her photos on Instagram. I loved how unique her wedding photos looked and, being a nature lover, wanted some epic nature photos of our wedding. But I found out that not only does she take awesome pictures, she is also a blast to work with. She was basically my wedding coordinator for the day and kept us on schedule without being pushy. She worked so well with us and with all the guests and other vendors. My now husband and I loved working with her but we were not the only ones. All my guests commented on how friendly she was; they all really liked her. She also did a great job of balancing getting photos with letting the guests (and us!) enjoy the event. Our event was on Saturday and she sent us a sneak peak three days later (so quick!). We're looking forward to the rest of them! I will definitely hire her again if we're looking for a photographer in the future. And I highly recommend her for any event you have!"

Margaret & Kyle

"Angie is an amazing photographer, our pictures are all absolutely gorgeous!!! She is not only a great photographer, she and Lee provide an entire experience which is priceless!!! Our wedding was absolutely perfect because of Angie’s recommendations and I have the pictures and video to prove it! Thank you so much Angie and Lee! You both are amazing human beings and we are so glad that you were part of our wedding—it would have not been the same without all your assistance!!!"

Angela & Drew

"Angie and her husband went above and beyond to make our elopement a stress free dream come true! From helping me plan out the day and suggesting an itinerary to scoping out locations and hikes the day before, Angie made the day seamless. This dynamic duo can do it all- photography, videography, officiating and first dance music. Hiking with Angie and her husband just felt like we were hanging out with two friends and taking some photos along the way. She definitely knows her stuff around Yosemite and I am so pleased with the stunning and EPIC photos we were able to capture. Thank you Angie for making our wedding so special!"

Ami & Ajay

"When we decided to elope we knew we wanted to hike to a gorgeous spot to do it, but was concerned about finding a photographer willing/able to hike and document it. I did some internet searching and found Mindful Media Photography/Angie. She was more than willing to join us for our adventure elopement. Then the Dixie fire changed all our plans, the location of our wedding burned and the state closed all of the forests for our scheduled date. Angie worked with us to find a date that she was available before the likelihood of snow in the high country. When she showed up she felt like an old friend. She welcomed my six year old daughter to be right next to her taking photos with her kid camera like Angie while she photographed flowers/jewelry/etc. We are not really people who love to be in front of the camera, but she made us feel comfortable and the photos show it in the relaxed look. The photos and the are stunning and the experience was wonderful! I can't speak highly enough of Angie."

Jon & Audrey

"My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our wedding! Angie is a truly gifted artist! We had multiple people come to us after the wedding with nothing but praise about her and her amazing ability to somehow be everywhere at once. I don't think a single moment wasn't captured. She kept in constant communication with us leading up to the event, so we never felt stressed or worried in that department of planning; she had us covered. On the day of the wedding, when I finally got to meet her in person, it felt like greeting an old friend! She has such a beautiful personality! Even after the wedding, she stayed in contact with updates and sneak peaks of photos. The final results were breathtaking! My favorite thing about her photography style is how natural and candid everything feels while still being edited to have fantastic lighting and colors. 10/10 would highly recommend her to capture your special day, she's incredible!"

Lindsey & Kevin

"I have so many good things to say I don’t know where to start, we used Mindful media and photography for our family photo shoot back in April and the pictures were literally breathtaking. Angela It’s such a wonderful person to be around it just makes for such an easy and natural photo shoot! Her pictures are so wonderful, even after edits there’s still so much energy and depth to them... she captures more than the moment but the emotion in the moment. I’ve used other photographers and Angela is definitely my favorite."

Barbie & Justin

"If you are looking for a wedding photographer and you have come across Mindful Media and Photography stop looking! Angie is absolutely wonderful. She is so sweet and very professional. She was very timely and captured everything I ever wanted and more from the important moments such as our first kiss as husband and wife down to the little details such as our dessert table, centerpieces, seating chart, flowers, our rings, ect. Every time my husband and I look at our wedding gallery we get to relive the best day of our lives. Her style is so authentic, she captured so many precious moments from beginning to end. Book your special day with Angie and you will not be disappointed!"

Amy & Stephen

"Angie and her husband are so talented and made us feel so special on our day! They continued to ask us how we wanted the day to go/what specific photos we wanted and were very good with helping us pose in the photos! My husband and I are very awkward but all of the photos and our video flowed so well and looked amazing! They even got drone footage for us that looked UNBELIEVABLE. We are seriously going to look back on these images years from now and are going to be able to reminisce every magical moment of our day! Which is great because it went by sooo fast. Thanks to the both of you for capturing it so wonderfully!!"
