Big Sur Engagements

Couples Engagements Wedding

There are two things in this world that speak straight to my soul. First is photography (obviously) and second is music. In my opinion, they go hand in hand. Each shoot I do has it’s own song, beat, and rhythm. Music and photographs both capture every type of emotion. When you see a picture of someone who has dealt with depression for the past ten years, you can see it in their eyes. When you hear a sad song, you feel the heartbreak of not just the person who wrote the song, but your OWN heartbreak. Looking at these pictures, I don’t just see a beautiful couple, breathtaking cliffs, and the endless sea in the background… I feel the rhythm of the waves crashing on the shore, hear the sound of the wind against my ear, and listen to the song playing in my head.

Here are two songs I hear when I look through these pictures. Choose one and listen to it as you scroll through this love story.



(p.s. HUGE thank you to Karissa and Wyatt for adventuring with us over these cliffs and walking on blistered feet the whole day)

Everyone danced until they all decided to take a jump in the pool. Kennedy and Chandler ran through ...

Smay and Adam have the perfect home. Not perfect in the sense of, perfectly decorated or perfectly clean. But a perfect place to be with the one you love. I am so happy I got to capture them in their element. Thanks for letting me crash your dinner party! xo  
Emma & Jesse
So here's the deal... before this shoot I was feeling SO DOWN about my photography. Being an artist means riding a constant roller coaster. One minute you feel like the best photographer in the world, and the next you feel like chucking your camera off a cliff. Before they came to pick me up, I was searching Pinterest for inspiration of how I wanted this shoot to feel. I knew Emma had a contagious smile and I knew I wanted to capture that. I also knew I wanted to capture the emotions that they were feeling and have been feeling through this whole adventure of falling in love with each other. We had so much fun laughing and shooting.
