My Second Home | Life At The Cottage

They say the more you love your job, the more it doesn’t feel like work, and The Cottage makes me so grateful to be doing what I love, and what I know I’m meant to do on this Earth. Photographing weddings, elopements, engagements, proposals – the whole shebang! It’s what I love to do most, so I thought I’d take you all along for the ride and introduce you to my second home and what life is like at The Cottage here in Carmel Valley, California!

Isn’t it charming? This is where the magic starts! I get to meet the loveliest new couples, and here, they can see all of our products in person. Online just doesn’t do it justice, you know? There’s something about seeing it in front of you, touching the albums, and feeling the frames. Life’s meant to a sensory experience and it happens at The Cottage!

As a hybrid photographer, I photograph with film and digital. Film especially has SUCH a beautiful process to it, it has always captured the emotion and motion in my subjects wonderfully. I trust it with my life’s work and I trust it photographing your precious moments. What I do is an art and a tool to memorialize your special day.

Local Venues By The Cottage

Because The Cottage is so locally centered in the heart of Carmel, not to mention we’re a few short miles from Big Sur, it’s the perfect place to stop by in between cake tasting and venue walk-throughs. Oh, and if you’re considering having your wedding here in lovely Big Sur, I have Tips & Tricks on that too! I got your back!

At The Cottage, we’re nearby Holman Ranch, Bernardus Lodge, the Holly Farm, Folktale Winery, Stonepine, Carmel Valley Ranch, and Tehama – just to name just a few lovely places that are AMAZING to photograph your wedding at! Knowing your way around a venue is part of the job as a photographer of course, and I’ve captured precious memories at all these locations and more!

Navigating The World of Weddings

I can’t emphasize enough that meeting with a wedding photographer is just that- meeting. No strings attached to me! Finding the photographer that fits you and your partner is an often overwhelming and overshadowing a tidbit but it is SO so important that you find a great match. Navigating the wedding world can be a pretty daunting task after all! Instagram shows you the artist’s best work, which is great, but imagine actually getting to know them, seeing what they can offer besides the tops 9 images?! Meeting vendors is a big piece of the puzzle too! Having connections is key and I’m delighted to help you in every way I can. I have a preferred list that I would highly recommend. More resources for you to have at your fingertips while planning that perfect day!
