If anyone is looking for a Monterey engagement photographer, count me in because this engagement session was like something out of a fairytale, I swear! Christine found me on Instagram and immediately I had a feeling we would get along so well. We did! She and her fiance, Michael, are some of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the honor of photographing. You know those people you meet and you feel like you’ve been friends forever? That was them! We had an absolute blast together and the photos turned out beautiful. I cannot wait to see them again!
By looking at these, you would never guess they were taken right at sunrise, early in the morning. Typically my preference for engagement sessions is evenings to catch the beloved Golden Hour, but after walking away from this sunrise engagement session, I fell in love with mornings a whole lot more! The light is so soft and just has this magical feeling to it, almost like golden hour but, dare I say it, maybe even a little better.
Their outfits were absolutely perfect for the occasion! Not too dressy, but not too casual. I feel like it was a perfect mix of both. I love when couples bring two outfits to their engagement sessions. Not only does it give you variation in your Save the Dates, but it makes it look like you’ve booked two separate sessions… a win-win in my book! Christine’s white dress was beautiful and I quite literally gasped when she did her outfit change. I loved the movement it brought into our session and it was so fun to have them frolic under the trees together.
The neutral colors in their outfits were the best and really complimented their skin tones and the colors of their location. If you are on the fence about what to wear for your engagement session, neutrals are never a bad idea!
