A Big Sur Engagement | Timea & Dan

I could talk about Big Sur, CA and how it was such a big “bucket list” item for me for hours!
If you’d like to hear all about that check out Our 2nd Anniversary Trip | California blog post !

Now let’s talk about this stunning engagement session! A mutual friend helped me connect with Timea & Dan before we ventured to the west coast for our trip. We discussed where and how we’d meet in Big Sur because of the lack of cell phone service.
Which is no joke by the way! haha With this being our first time it was a little stressful not being able to communicate to make sure everyone was en route and more specifically that Tim & I were going the right way haha!
We took this insanely steep, winding road up, down and around to Pfeiffer Beach at Big Sur. Once we parked I noticed a man dressed in a stunning suit and knew that had to be them! As soon as Timea stepped out of the car in her (also stunning) dress I got even more excited to photograph them!
When she told me she had a cute tulle dress, I wasn’t expecting it to look like this! That thing was B E A U T I F U L! Turns out it was custom made for her (perfection!)
One of my favorite things to do is getting to know the couples I photograph. Dan is in the Navy & from Michigan, Timea from Hungary. They met while they were both living abroad & will be moving back overseas after their California wedding! They fully embraced all the photographic snuggles as the wind was whipping 50 degrees against us. It was freezing, especially with us coming from a summer month in Charleston. I shot this session on both film & digital. I still look at these images with a smile on my face because I went to Big Sur AND had this amazing couple to photograph there!
