as typical as it is for most of our clients to want to include sf or at least a landmark of sf in the backdrop, this couple was the exception. angela and paul told us they don't care too much for the city and are much more outdoorsy and sporty. we decided on pt. reyes for the quaint town which is far from the hectic, harried, cosmopolitan lifestyle and includes great views of the ocean not too far away. what a great way to spend a leisurely sunday with such spectacular weather...
our first stop included a stroll through the "downtown" area of first street. tiny little shops peppered the street, with names that include at least one word of "organic," "natural," or "healing" it seems. seems like this town hadn't seen such excitement in awhile as onlookers paused to take a look at this gorgeous couple who everyone could tell are total lovebirds. and after our brief tour of the main hub of the town, we set out for drakes beach. of course, our driving trips to each destination always include pulling over to do "just one more shot" when we see something interesting along the way.
instead of being able to finally relax and enjoy the beach, we hiked up a steep trail to capture some fantastic overview shots of the coast. (did i mention paul did all of this after just having had surgery on his leg?) finally at the beach, we got a chance to play around with the very flat and slightly damp sand, on which paul neatly wrote "plan a," which signifies their commitment to one another in this life and ditching any other alternative plans.
enjoy these images of this beautiful couple, in their element. congrats, angela and paul. can't wait for your wedding in june!
beach babes at play!
