We had so much fun at this adventurous Big Sur engagement session! Austin + Cassie were so sweet from the minute they inquired! Working with them was a breeze and we laughed pretty much the whole time. These love birds were visiting from out of state and I had to show them the beauty of Big Sur!
Cassie told me they wanted cliff views and also wanted some beach photos! I knew Garrapata State Park would be the perfect spot for them.
Big Sur is a perfect location for engagements, elopements, and more! It offers a variety of options for a shoot, with many spots to pull off and shoot. This location is just near Monterey and attracts many guests from all over the world, for good reason. I highly recommend shooting here on a weekday to avoid the crowds and have these areas to yourselves. If you can’t do a weekday, sunrise would be a better option!
We started up by the cliffs and ventured down to a cool little rocky area. Austin + Cassie were naturals in front of my camera (even though they were nervous at first) I love getting to know my couples better so that I can make them comfortable around me and my camera!
After we finished up by the cliffs, we drove a little bit further down to get some gorgeous photos at the beach. We hiked down to the beach and had the area to ourselves. The wind was freezing and were pretty chilly, but totally worth it! If you aren’t sure what to wear to a Big Sur shoot, check out my Pinterest board for outfit ideas!
