A surprise proposal at Ventana Big Sur, followed by a happy, carefree session to celebrate at Pfeiffer Beach. This NYC-based couple on vacation here in Big Sur was kind, fun to be around, sweet, andddd they got their MBA’s from Harvard and Stanford. Plus, they dressed and looked like THAT. Truly a golden couple!

M+L were married last year and on a vacation this week from the Midwest to Carmel and Big Sur. They decided to celebrate their first wedding anniversary with some sweet photos during their first trip to NorCal. The day started with gloomy, ominous weather and the power in their hotel even went out, but it […]

Big Sur is magical. Proposing and getting engaged is the most magical, surreal moment in perhaps a lifetime. So, it’s no surprise so many guys choose Big Sur to propose to their partners. I shoot dozens of proposals a year here, and so I thought I would share a few of my favorite spots to […]

L + J got married on top of the world. Well, it felt like it. With their immediate families and closest friends as their witnesses, they said “I do” at a private residence they found through Airbnb or VRBO. It was one of the ONLY houses on a long stretch of coastal gorgeous Highway 1 […]

I’ve been waiting for a client to choose this favorite spot of mine to propose! It’s one of the most spiritual, special spots to me. The redwoods grow in almost a perfect circle, often called a fairy ring, and he proposed right in the middle. I heard there are only 25 of these fairy rings, […]

Finally blogging this beautiful Christmas-time San Francisco wedding slash elopement! This was super fun for me because I shot M+K’s proposal in late October and then a few weeks later they decided to get married immediately! They did things RIGHT by making their whirlwind day super intentional. They had their immediate family and each had […]

Leading up to Eden’s proposal, it rained for three days straight..and it was the first rain I had honestly seen since moving here in May! He had a cliffside picnic in Big Sur planned for his proposal and I was totally stressing. I figured it would start raining or be too cold and windy and […]

Paul contacted me about photographing his proposal on a cliff in Big Sur. This story has a great ending but HOLY hell it was terrifying as it happened. He had seen photos of a ceremony I shot at this one unmarked turnoff and wanted to propose there. So I told him where it was. Since […]

I photographed Big Sur locals who live and work here. So of course they knew the best unmarked trail in Big Sur to take some epic engagement shots at sunset! They are getting married next month! Congratulations, guys! xoxo
