Jess + Andrew \\ Big Sur, Carmel California Wedding Photographer \\ Redwood Forest + Pfeiffer Beach

August 19, 2014

This may be one of our very favorite sessions EVER. Tim and I have had a crush on Big Sur for a long time – it’s seriously got to be one of the prettiest places in California and all of the US. While we were out in California for Mellisa + Zac’s Napa Valley wedding at Meadowood, we also got to meet up with one of my oldest friends Jess and her awesome husband Andrew to play in Big Sur and shoot a day-after session for them. We shot along California’s beautiful coastline, deep in the redwood forests and ended at Pfeiffer Beach, arguably the best place to see a sunset in California. Jess + Andrew, it was SO fun to see you guys and create these images for you! We hope you love them as much as we do 🙂 And PS – any blog readers out there planning a Big Sur wedding or elopement? Shoot us an email, we’d love to come back sooner rather than later! xoxo

    Such lovely photos! I am a big fan of black & white images as they project a classic look. Your shots are so perfect and romantic, plus the location is breathtaking.
