Carmel-By-The-Sea Engagement | Liz & Adam


I've been incredibly lucky to have the chance and opportunity to document weddings and engagement photos around the world. And although I've been able to step outside the box of Seattle wedding photography, no location surprised me more than Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. I was completely blown away by its rolling fields, to wave splashed cliffs and sea stacks that were hit by the sunset perfectly. We ran along the trails, teetering by the edges that kept us from falling the hundreds of feet into the ocean. It was incredibly mesmerizing. I'm so used to the moody light and lack of sun that Seattle provides, so the California golden hour won me over.  Liz and Adam hold Carmel-by-the-Sea close to their hearts because this is where they became engaged when the original plan fell through. What an incredible back up plan. I have been able to come back down to Carmel to document a wedding at St. Lucia Preserve, and hope to continue making the easy trek to this special part of California.
