kim + andre | engagement | big sur | central coast | pt 1

kim and andre’s engagement session in big sur was definitely one of my favorite sessions this year. we started out the session near their home in orange county to capture a few photos with their adorable four-legged baby, freddie, then headed out to big sur for a day of adventure and fun! kim and andre decided to have their engagement session in big sur since it was one of their first trips together and big sur means a lot of them.

we started out the engagement session with the amazing redwoods at pfeiffer big sur state park and then headed out to the pfieffer state beach for that california golden light that was so perfect. afterwards, we drove over to the famous bixby bridge to capture the last moment of the sunset…right at dusk. the next day, we headed out to monterey….more on that on the next blog post! here are some of my favorites from kim and andre’s big sur engagement session…we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!

betty + michael | engagement | old town alexandria virginia

virginia has a special place in my heart since i spent a several summers back in my grade school days canoeing & fishing on the potomac and enjoying the outdoors with family. virginia is also known for lovers and that’s how betty and michael’s story began. betty and michael are originally from orange county, california, and met about 2 years ago while they both were and still are attending school in virginia. it was a no brainer that we would be capturing betty and michael’s engagement session in virginia and old town alexandria was the perfect location.

here are some of my favorite photos from betty and michael’s old town alexandria engagement session and am looking forward to capturing their wedding day in california next year!
