Rain on your wedding day……  Flexibility is key – rain does not ruin a wedding day!  We are so very lucky to live in an area in California that rarely rarely see’s rain… when it arrives we all sort of scratch our heads and wait to for it disappear very soon.   We had heard […]

Married on the most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s Day! And being on the top of the cliffs of Big Sur with your closest friends and family watching you exchange your vows. True bliss for these two. Their attention to detail was perfect! Even the all of the girls in the wedding had […]

Big Sur Wedding Elopement with Weddings In Monterey

Ahhh- what a session this was. We all met down at the picturesque Glen Oaks Big Sur. The minute you step foot at this venue, the moment your blood pressure drops 10 points! No kidding. So serene and calm/peaceful. I really wanted to play with some new lighting techniques with these two – and I […]

Where do I start with these two? Let’s just say it was all meant to be. These two met me out at Bernardus Lodge for a quick session in the Rose Garden… where they will be married in late June of this year. I was lucky to meet both of their mom’s too! They were […]

Beautiful elopement on the cliffs of Big Sur overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Sweet Chelsea reached out to me as their plans had changed due to the pandemic and I was thrilled she did! This was the most beautiful and elegant small event at the gorgeous La Playa Hotel located in Carmel. She knew when she met Christian 6 or so years ago, that he WAS the one […]

Jeni and Jonathan were to get married originally in August – but their plans changed due to Covid. They switched courses and we were so grateful that they found us! They had just a few guests present to include their sons, her mom and two sisters. These two were together for six years (wow!) on […]

Mini Wedding in Carmel with Weddings in Monterey

Was honored to be asked to take Angelita’s senior portraits this season. She is the ‘baby’ of the family as I’ve also taken her two older brother’s senior portraits in the past few years. The first time I met this sweet girl she was in catcher’s gear and in beast mode during a travel softball […]

I jump for joy (literally, I’m not kidding) when one of my clients orders something that will be ultimately be printed… whether it be a beautiful metallic print, an album, wall displays, framing or more. Living in this digital age so many images that are taken just sit… sit on your phone, sit in your […]

These two lovebirds… where do I start? Oh my goodness. This past June, Lauren reached out to Brian my husband asking if Weddings in Monterey could help her and her fiance get married. They wanted Brian to officiate the wedding and me to document their day. After spending some time with Brian talking over all […]

Bernardus Lodge and Spa Wedding Elopement

About a week ago, these two Monterey locals exchanged their vows in front of their family at the exquisite Highlands Inn overlooking the grand Pacific Ocean. They had bigger plans before the pandemic to have a larger wedding – but decided to make alternate plans that ‘fit’ during this time for them. They had just […]
