Half Moon Bay Engagement Photography // Naomi & Matt

It’s always super exciting to see where a couple takes me for their Engagement Session. Naomi & Matt decided to do the shoot in Half Moon Bay, CA and it couldn’t have been a better spot for them. We casually walked on the Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail, crossed the Pilarcitos Creek and found a most beautiful, white-sanded beach. Thanks to the not so perfect weather we were the only ones enjoying the cold afternoon at the ocean. Enjoy ♥

Boudoir Photography in Santa Cruz

The Boudoir Session is no doubt a very unique experience. My approach to Boudoirs is to capture the fragility and the inner beauty of a woman, making the photos intense with interpretation of the viewer. It’s so much more about creating anticipation rather than showing off. It’s a wonderful gift for all those new husbands to be! Enjoy

PS: Did you know that the traditional first wedding anniversary gift in the US is Paper? An album with intimate Boudoirs would be such an amazing & special idea!

Santa Cruz UCSC Engagement Photography // Carolyn & Jeremy

Like a broken record I was saying over and over again ‘this is SO beautiful!’. I meant it every single time.

Carolyn & Jeremy met some years ago at UCSC. Such a gorgeous place! Between open fields, college buildings and dorms, there are deep canyons filled with lush redwood forests. Enjoy ♥
