I love being based on the central coast because there is such a variety of environments for me and my couples to explore. Anna and Jarrod are getting married next year in Monterey and they wanted their session to be in a place that would really highlight the scenery, to give their guests a sneak peek of their wedding day to come! I had the perfect location in mind - truly a favorite of mine and they absolutely LOVED it!

Keep scrolling to check out some of my favorites from their Carmel engagement session! Plus as a bonus, I shot a lot of film at their session, can you tell the difference between film and digital photography? Comment and let me know!

Let's talk about their super cute outfits! For the first part of their session, Anna wore a colorful romper and Jarrod wore black slacks and a blazer. For their more casual outfit, Anna wore this white sweater with puffy sleeves that I'm absolutely in love with and Jarrod wore a jean shirt and khakis. I just loved their cute and casual laid back style, it fits their personalities so well!

Here's a mix of my favorites from outfit number one, their dressy outfits!


I love adding some scenic shots into my galleries so you can always remember the context for your images! I lived in this area for 3 years before I became a San Luis Obispo wedding photographer, so it will always hold a special place in my heart!


About halfway through the session, I usually have my couples change into their more casual outfits. I love doing it this way because now they are all warmed up and I can get those really cozy shots that I love.

Here is a mix of my favorites from outfit #2, their casual outfits. Both of them are soooo good and don't you just love Anna's smile!

Who doesn't love a winery wedding? One of the best things about being a San Luis Obispo wedding photographer is that I'm surrounded by beautiful winery venues. One of my local favorites is Biddle Ranch Vineyard which is the setting for today's inspiration.

This shoot is filled with apricot and peach inspired florals paired with a neutral, romantic aesthetic meant to stand the test of time. One of my favorite elements is the perfect blend of complementary elements and textures - copper, silk, satin, glass. 

Soft neutrals used in the table design create such a magical atmosphere with timeless romance. The rose colored copper flatware is seriously so dreamy! Let's take a moment for this intimate table! The luxurious table with the vines in the background are the perfect touch.

I really got to play with flatlays at this shoot. I just love the added touch of pink from this new board that I haven't shared before!

Let's have another look at this table, just because you have an intimate wedding, doesn't mean it can't be full of details!

Make sure you check out the awesome team that made this shoot possible!
