Engagement Photography on Moonstone Beach

Natural Light-Sunset Photo Shoot - Engagement Photography

Cambria, CA is full of rolling hills, country roads and a variety coastline. It’s perfect for a proposal destination. Plus it’s great for some stunning and unique engagement photography.

Engagement photo shoots are important because you can connect with your photographer prior to your wedding day. This makes your wedding day even more comfortable and suitable to your taste. The session gives you an hour together kissing, laughing and strolling hand in hand. Additionally it’s special to have a lot of photos NOT in your wedding dress. We’ll take photos in your favorite street clothes to have up around your home. Maybe even frame some for the tables at your wedding!

Octavia’s Senior Portrait

Senior Portrait Photographer_California_Paso Robles_Cambria_Morro Bay_Girl

Octavia needed a Senior Portrait Photographer and seniors are my favorite subjects to work with!  They are having fun in their last year of high school and they LOVE posing in lots of different ways. It’s 1 focal point the whole photo session vs. lots of people at weddings and family reunions!  Win win!

All the outfit changes gave her portfolio some great variety; it even inspired me to think of more places to shoot with each outfit. Additionally she wanted some head shots to start an acting career, so we headed on over to my studio for a clean white backdrop.

Whatever setting/background or interest you have ~ whether it’s beach, country road, street, your backyard, on a basketball court, surfing in action ~ I truly love capturing this phase of life and being a senior portrait photographer for a few months of the year when seniors need a yearbook photo!  I’m fortunate to live in Cambria and easily shoot CUHS seniors, Morro Bay High, Templeton, Atascadero, Paso Robles and all of San Luis County including Mission Prep.

Unique Marriage Proposal Idea!

Unique Marriage Proposal Idea - at Hearst Castle

Surprise proposals are SO incredible, and my dear friend Leo was looking for a unique marriage proposal idea for his lovely Saroya!  He wanted it to be like a fairy tale, and it was!!!

Hearst Castle is set in a gorgeous hilltop location. With sweeping panoramic views over the rolling Central Coast hills of California and Pacific Ocean.   Buy tickets to any tour here!  I captured Leo’s marriage proposal with a telephoto lens. Leo and Saroya have some beautiful, emotional photos to treasure for years to come.  The tours are always fascinating with knowledgeable guides. As many tours as I’ve been on, it’s never the same ~ I learn something new every time!  I love touring Hearst Castle!

Saroya was darling and I feel SO HAPPY for Leo, because whatever he said was perfect and Saroya had a beautiful and emotional response!  It’s such a thrill to capture such loving moments in gorgeous settings.
