I photographed Christina and James’ engagement session in Pebble Beach and it was so sweet and fun! Christina and James were born and raised in Pacific Beach and even went to the same preschool. Isn’t that the cutest thing? The two of them are getting married this year in August at Leal Vineyards Winery. The […]

Revisiting Zach and Jess’ Carmel engagement session after having SO much fun photographing their welcome dinner party and Folktale Winery wedding back in October made me realize how in LOVE with this couple I am!

Caitlin and Miguel hired me for their Pebble Beach engagement photoshoot AND their December wedding in downtown Monterey! I’m SO stoked and can’t wait for their big day at The Barns at Cooper Molera. It’s one of my favorite venues in the area! Having your wedding photographer also capture your engagement session is a great […]

Natalia and Vladimir’s engagement photos in Big Sur were SO fun and romantic, full of dreamy blush tones and pretty neutrals, and not one- but TWO beautiful dresses! They were staying in San Francisco when Natalia told me she was absolutely in LOVE with photos featuring beautiful backgrounds at beautiful and breathtaking locations. From that, […]

Cole and Nicole’s Carmel by the Sea engagement session was SUCH a great experience to photograph! We shot an hour-and-a-half or so before sunset, and there was just a little bit of wind in the area that day too. It made for these awesome wind-in-your-hair moments with dramatic ocean waves to boot! As a local […]

Vivian and Ryan took a day trip from San Francisco with their dog, Kona, for their Carmel Valley engagement session with Kristin, one of AGS Photo Art’s associate photographers!

Engagement sessions peel back the layers of my couples and tell whether or not we’re a good fit, and with Matt and Meli’s Big Sur engagement + their Bernardus wedding, I know the three of us are a GREAT fit! These two came to my office aka The Cottage so we could talk all about […]

I was SO over the moon to photograph Jill and Ryan’s MPCC engagement session in Pebble Beach! There can never be enough special occasions for me to be a couple’s MPCC wedding photographer. The Monterey Peninsula Country Club is a private beach house that is such a dreamy venue both for Jill and Ryan’s engagement […]

Emily and Conor’s engagement session in Big Sur was such a dream to shoot! These two have been together for eight years now. They got engaged on December 5, 2020 on Baker Beach in San Francisco while playing fetch with/walking their dog, Gino. Isn’t that the sweetest? As a Big Sur engagement photographer, I love […]

Ellie and Houston’s Pebble Beach engagement session was SUCH a sweet day and it only made me even more excited to photograph their Holman Ranch wedding. Surprise!
