A Big Sur engagement session… dreamy light that turned to slightly overcast skies, a beach cruiser bicycle, an energetic couple, and FILM! This was such a fun and BEAUTIFUL engagement session!

This is one of our first sessions we’re sharing that’s a true hybrid session, meaning captured with both digital and film images. The way this session was captured, there is so much emotion in each image, film just has a different feeling, yet they mirror so incredibly well with our work.

We remember the day Kelly and Christopher reached out to us about being their wedding photographers. They had found us on Instagram and were planning their Carmel Mission wedding in the fall. They met in college, planning to marry on their eight year anniversary, and shared the most amazing proposal story. Christopher had listened very close to details Kelly had talked about, learning her great-grandfather had not only worked at, but him and his wife had honeymooned at Heart Castle. Christopher planned an afternoon and took Kelly for a tour of the castle. Kelly’s smiling lighting up the room as she’s telling us, once the tour was over, while walking the grounds, he took her to one of the magnificent gardens overlooking the ocean, and got down on one knee! She was completely surprised and of course said YES!

Planning the wedding came easy for these two. Knowing each other so well, and both wanting the exact same thing, an intimate small gathering of only close family and friends, rich with catholic history, using the Monterey Peninsula’s historical features to accent their dream day. The Carmel Mission, where Christopher grew up attending was a certainty, now to find the perfect place to celebrate after was all they had left on their to-do-list.

This Big Sur engagement session was an absolutely gorgeous and we can’t to share their wedding!
