Wedding Photography ~ Carmel Beach, Carmel CA
I can't think of a more dramatic backdrop for a wedding than the rugged Big Sur Coastline. So I was beyond excited when Nate & Jared told me they had chosen the famous 17 Mile Drive just south of Carmel for their intimate beach ceremony. The decor was simple and natural... I mean look at this place, this landscape doesn't need much!
It was just the couple, their mothers, the officiant, and myself. Despite the small wedding party, it was one of the most epic weddings I've had the pleasure of experiencing. As the waves roared and the golden California sunset streamed through the sea mist, I did my best to honor this magical scenery.
We found a forest of Cypress trees for some additional portraits, and ended the session by the landmark "Lone Cypress" at twilight. Once we had used up every last second of natural light we took a short drive to the Hyatt Carmel Highlands to finish the night with dinner, drinks and dancing.
