Morgan and Bill’s Carmel Beach engagement make them the PERFECT Monterey couple when it comes to their maritime photos! Everything from their thematic blues (which really is their signature color!) to their adorable Frenchie, Olive, made their engagement session a delight to photograph!
Best Friends’ Sweet Serendipity
What really added to the sentimental factor I have for Morgan and Bill is that Morgan also recommended me to one her best friends, Sarah, for her engagement session! It’s such a serendipitous honor for me to be able to photograph for two best friends and their fiancés. Recommendations like these and the connections that follow really warm my heart!
I love these shots of them on the dock. Nothing says Monterey like Bill’s blue sports coat and Morgan’s lacy white dress- especially with Olive and her adorable little sailor’s jacket! Photographing couples and their fur baby is always a joy. By all means, paw-rents, your fur baby has a spot in your photos with you!
Their Champagne Love Story
“William wanted to propose before we left on a trip to Florence, Italy, and had the date of March 1st identified for a long, long time. However, as weather goes the extended rainy season was throwing a wrench into his original plans so we decided last second to go with the same proposal technique his Dad used for his Mom. We were at our house the night before our trip to Italy having cocktails before we headed to dinner with our parents. He was insistent that he severed everyone their champagne, not me. I thought this was odd but I went with it. When he turned the corner with my champagne glass I knew something was different. I looked in the glass and saw the ring. He then got down on one knee and the rest is history!” – Morgan
The Perfect Spot For A Carmel Beach Engagement Session
Morgan is a bride who is really on top of her game- she’s in tune with exactly what she wants and doesn’t want, and communicates that to me so well. Teamwork makes the dream work, after all! I was really appreciative of our similar styles and how we were always on the same wavelength. She had the exclusive location for their engagement session already booked. Since she and Bill are avid golf and boat people, Carmel Beach was the perfect pick!
Morgan and Bill absolutely fit together like puzzle pieces! They’re a power couple through and through. Photographing their love story on the docks really captured how well they complement each other with their giggly smiles and embraces.
Carmel Beach Engagement Session: Beautiful Blues
Once we got to Carmel Beach, they switched up their outfits for this STUNNING deep navy blue suit and gown. This shade of blue really is their signature color in my eyes as a local Monterey photographer. Their photographs on the rocks and sand give their Carmel Beach engagement session such a classic and nautical vibe. Like Morgan mentioned earlier, champagne is a key element in their love story. I loved getting to raise a glass and toast to their engagement!
Let’s cheer this couple on as they say their I Do’s this month!!
