Moody Motorcycle Biker Elopement in Topanga Canyon || Imogen + Lucifer

Imogen and Lucifer are some of the raddest couples I’ve ever gotten to work with. Just beyond their ultra-cool rock-n-roll tattoos-and-motorcycles biker exterior are the most gentle, tender, kind hearts. They met me at a sweet AirBnB tucked amongst the rolling hills of Topanga Canyon, a funky town situated right between Los Angeles and Malibu. The area is artsy and full of nature, with sweeping views of the Santa Monica Mountains. Malibu and Topanga are also biker culture haven. The canyons are an iconic ride, and you can spot groups of bikers at classic hangouts like Neptune’s Net on the Pacific Coast Highway.
These two come from completely different worlds but met thanks to their mutual love of motorcycles. It made sense to include a piece of that part of their relationship in their elopement. In addition to their beloved Harley, we took some photos with their gorgeous classic car. Imogen wore a Victorian-gothic style wedding dress that she found at a thrift store and tried on 0 times after purchasing. It suited and fit her like a glove. They both had their hands adorned with handmade rings from their family jewelry shop, The Great Frog LA (@thegreatfrogla). Imogen’s family opened the original iconic shop in London, and she runs the LA store. I already have a minor obsession with hands and rings, so I went hard documenting this piece of their elopement story.
One of the many things I adore about Imogen and Lucifer is how true they are to who they are. All of the things that made their elopement so stylish and “cool” are often used as styling props at weddings–– but for Imogen and Lucifer, they didn’t fake any of it. The Harley Davidson is one of their bikes that they ride regularly, as is their classic car. The rings adorning their hands are pieces from their family shop. Imogen’s gown is her style to a T–– not a show she’s putting on for anyone. They didn’t have a “rock-n-roll-motorcycle-themed styled elopement” but they had an Imogen and Lucifer elopement. They are two people who simply came as they are and eloped.
