A Romantic Pre-wedding Session by the Sea - with Erin and Jeffrey (Carmel, CA)

This e-Session didn't start off too well as there was a huge back up on the way to Carmel, with a couple accidents. Luckily Erin and Jeff and myself started early, so we didn't lose much sunlight. Then to our surprise, Carmel beach was packed with people, on a weekday late afternoon. And that made Erin a bit uneasy to start with. But thanks to Jeff's sweet effort, he eventually made her feel more at ease. We strolled through the town, and the beautiful beach and had a nice time there.

Julie + Alberto: Engaged! (San Mateo, CA)

If I hadn't talked to Julie and Alberto before their e-Session, I would have thought that they were professional models! From the very first minute we started our photo session, they were just so natural in front of the camera! It was a very enjoyable shoot with the sweet couple, not to mention the cooperating weather, with the nice warm afternoon sun.
