CARMEL!! Josh & Ashley's Engagement Session

Last weekend Colin and I set out for a little mini vacation, to Carmel for Josh and Ashley Engagement Session... This is our favorite place on earth to be (next to San Diego). We love the weather, the shops, the beach, the B&B's everywhere and the cute little houses on every street... It doesn't get much better than this.
After talking with Ashley and Josh we decided it would be fun to stay for the weekend in Carmel and get some beach shots for their engagement photos. They will be married in December and as many of you know I only do a couple weddings a year and because Josh is the brother of a very dear Client and Friend of mine, Krista Fischer, we agreed that it would be a perfect match. We photographed John & Krista's wedding in May and have also had the privilege of documenting the life stages of their adorable little boy, Justin.
We started off on the beach on an extremely windy day but we made it work and had lots of laughs together! Aren't they cute!
Josh quickly got unfairly labeled as our groom-zilla because the sun and wind was bothering him so much. Soon though Ashley and I were "whining" too! We just had to get a little creative with where they sat and it was all good when I told Josh he could put on his shades! He really was such a good sport and not at all a groom-zilla but it was funny and made us all laugh anyway!
No engagement session on the beach is complete unless there is a heart drawn in the sand! So we found the perfect spot with the Pebble Beach Golf Course in the background-What a beautiful day with a beautiful couple!! ; o)
I always like to bring out who the couple are and what they like when possible. Ashley and I talked about bringing something to show off what they like as a couple and they decided to bring their matching baseball hats for this fun and relaxed look. It also makes the session more fun for the guys. Shades and Baseball Hats in photos.. what could be better... hahaha! We decided a drink at IL Fornio would do the trick after these shots!
The sun still had about an hour before it would set so we went up to IL Fornio a couple blocks up Ocean Ave and had a drink and took a break from the wind. A few minutes before the sun was gone we ran back to the beach for these last few shots as the sun was setting behind them, awh how romantic....
Thanks Josh and Ashley for meeting us in Carmel! We had so much fun with you two and a great weekend as well. We hope the rest of your stay was just as wonderful. Thank you also to the Reichardt & Fisher Families for trusting us with all of your Photographic Memories, we can't wait to see all of you at the Wedding! LOL : o)
