Ritz Carlton Engagement Photographer

It was so much fun to celebrate Patrick and Colleen’s Half Moon Bay engagement at the Ritz Carlton. We had a day with conflicting weather reports, but since they were in from out of town, we took the risk and braved the weather. We ended up with stunning clouds, an incredible sunset, and some of my favorite photos of all time. Thank you both for sharing your special weekend with me and for allowing me to document what was in your hearts. <3

And some kisses on the beach. I love the soft focus of the one on the left.

These two are from Atlanta and so they were stoked to get some engagement photos that look different than their friends’ photos. We made sure to capture some big images full of the ocean so that they can look back and remember not just their love and their engagement, but their holiday together, too!

Of course, we didn’t make it just beach though. These images in the beautiful, old Cypress trees, with the light streaming through, make me very happy.
