On July 6, 2018 I had the pleasure of photographing Kristen & Austin’s engagement photography session at Montara Beach, near Pacifica right off Highway 1 in Northern California. Kristen, who recently moved here from Tennessee fell in love with the sheer cliffs and iconic northern California beach scenery found at Montara Beach and immediately chimed in with their must have engagement location when asked. I’d never been to Montara Beach before and wasn’t sure what to expect, but this place delivered! Not only does Montara boast a gorgeous beach, but it also has a gorgeous flower covered cliff that sits right off the road before you venture down to the water. We started in the flowers, then made our way down to the beach. We played around on the beach capturing candid embraces, laughter and smooches, waiting and hoping for a gorgeous sunset. Finally at 8:30pm, the fog had cleared and the sunset shone brightly for our end of shoot images. This shoot was so much fun and I can’t wait to capture their big day this September!
