California Engagement Session | Carmel + Pebble Beaches | Monterey, CA

These two amazingly sweet, funny, lovable men said their I-do’s this past weekend!

Prior to their wedding date, we did an engagement shoot on Carmel and Pebble Beaches (Spanish Bay). Considering all the recent rains in northern/central California, the weather over the weekend was gorgeous! So, we took advantage of the dreamy golden hour light and cloudless skies and ventured down to the beaches. We risked bacteria infections, hypothermia, broken faces and limbs to get some of these photos … okay, not really. 😉 There were signs up warning us to stay out of the water – so we did. One of them MAY  have tripped and almost face planted it into some rocks, but is a rockstar and caught himself! And it wasn’t so cold to be hypothermic but it was windy and brisk … but it’s Northern California in the winter – what did we expect?  🙂

I am very honored to have taken these photos for Movses and Nikita. I wish them all the happiness in the world!

** To Movses and Nikita, thank you both for being such troupers and climbing on slippery rocks and braving the chilly winds to get these photos! You both are rockstars and I wish we had more time to do more photos but I am super thrilled with what we accomplished in a short time.
