september sneak peeks

big sur wedding photographer sunset photo

just in case you haven’t seen enough pretty things this week, i thought i’d share a few sneak peeks from all the work i’ve been shooting this summer!

up first is one from a sweet outdoor DIY wedding that i assisted maggie with! i absolutely love this image of the bride. and her florals! peonies, anyone??!

next are some sneak peeks from big sur!!! big sur is one of my dream locations, and i’m so excited that i was able to travel there to shoot an engagement session with grace baek! (i definitely want to shoot an intimate wedding or elopement there someday.)

i can’t wait to share the rest of this shoot with you when the time comes! i must admit i’m not a big outdoorsy person (i’m much more of a loft-concrete-exposed brick-industrial chic kind of girl), but it’s always nice to reconnect with nature and get some fresh air and THOSE VIEWS… wow.

have a first look…
