We think your engagement session just so happens to be the perfect time to play around with a theme, concept or location that might be a little bit out of the box. Think juxtaposing your outfits with the setting, bringing in some unique floral elements or details, or picking an adventurous locale with some pretty epic views. Essentially, it’s the perfect time to ‘go big or go home’ and today’s stunning glam Big Sur engagement shoot by Faith of Winsome + Wright Photography Co. certainly backs up what we’re saying! Let’s hear a little bit more about the gorgeous couple, Ashley + Brian, and why a Big Sur backdrop was just right for them:
Brian and I resided on opposites sides of the country until we happened to meet one another in Colorado over a holiday break. Once Brian packed up his things and moved west we spent many long weekends camping. Camping felt like an intimate way to get to know one another and the beautiful sate of California, which we were just beginning to call our home. Through our travels, Big Sur has been a top favorite and a very special place for us. We were thrilled when Faith suggested shooting on the beaches and cliffs in Big Sur.
A sweet little ring box from The Mrs. Box always seems to make things that much better!
Christine Cater Floral + Event Design nailed it completely with this ultra lush + vibrant bouquet. More floral goodness – in the form of a perfect flower crown + sandy beach installment – to come!
Let’s end this gorgeousness with a few words from Ashley + Brian about their shoot with Faith:
Our experience with Faith was like none other. Faith is a perfectly proportionate blend of warm, friendly, and professional. It is evident through working with her that she is incredibly talented in photography and staging. I was blown away by Faith’s preparation and execution. This was her first time to California and she knew exactly what hills, cliffs, and beaches she would be shooting us on. All we had to do for our stunning photos was simply show up, as she had the rest covered. Her excitement and joy in shooting our photos was refreshing and created a fun and majestic environment.
Congrats, you two, and wishing you a lifetime of love!
