Vicki & Craig - Carmel-by-the-Sea, Ca.
This post is a little late since it was the last wedding of last season and now I'm getting ready for the 2009 season. But like I said my one and only resolution this year is to be more grateful so I need to say a few words about this amazing wedding that I was fortunate to be a part of.
I just can't believe I've had the good fortune to be a part of three weddings in beautiful Carmel/Monterey area. Carmel-by-the-Sea is not your typical California beach town, can't you tell by the name? Not just Carmel, but Carmel-by-the-Sea please. The landscape is rocky and dramatic and is often foggy in the summer, but nonetheless a really beautiful charming town. In fact Craig and Vicki decided to get married there instead of where they live, the Bahamas!
This wedding was probably the most intimate of the year, only about 20 guests. We were able to spend a lot of time with this couple so we drove around looking for locations to shoot. We took pictures beforehand at the state beach and then again the next day at the uber secluded and modern Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur. They even got in the cliff side jacuzzi at the Inn fully dressed without much persuasion. Now that's taking advantage of their locations to the fullest. What a way to end the season. Here are some of the highlights.
