Met the cutest little dude the other day down Carmel by the Sea. He came down from Sacramento for his parents anniversary trip to Carmel where they tied the knot a few years ago. He seems serious in this first one but he was totally putting a front on! He’s got the biggest smile and best belly laugh with that little tired sigh at the end of it cuz it takes that much work to laugh that hard. Oh how I miss those joyful baby moments with little ones under foot!
Love spending the afternoon with these sweethearts! They knew each other growing up in Guam but didn’t hook up until they were out here for college at the same time. They even know another one of my couples who also is from Guam. I guess it’s a small island according to James. I loved hearing about their upbringings, culture and family life back home. While they plan to marry back home, they wanted to capture their engagement session in California down in the gorgeous Big Sur. We met up at the iconic Bixby Bridge and arrived to full fog but once we drove up the hill to Stephanie’s boss house it began to burn off. He loaned us his beautiful modern pad also know as the Glass House in Big Sur. He knew they were going to make a beautiful weekend of it so he arranges a weekend stay at the Post Ranch Inn and dinner at Ventana for after their session with me. I think I need to get a boss. That’s amazing! In God’s perfect timing, when we went back down to the Bixby Bridge and the fog began to pull back to reveal Big Sur’s classic rugged coastline. We wrapped at Pfeiffer Beach for some golden light but not after a 30 minute wait to get in… such a gamble but so worth the risk. It was a fun chance to chat life and learn more about their wedding plans back home in Guam while we awaited our token parking spot. Cheers to many fun adventures ahead of you James and Stephanie!
