Madison & David's Carmel Beach Engagement Shoot
What a pretty day for a beach engagement shoot! Madison and David had the brilliant idea to head out to Carmel River State Beach for their session and it was just perfect! Even with the breezy wind, Madison's wind-blown, beachy blonde helped set the tone. The clouds in the sky created such cool patterns and added a nice texture as the sun slowly faded. David and Madison were naturals. I love how they could just laugh with each other, hold one another or lean in for a kiss without me even saying a word. It was so sweet! An added element to their shoot was their two pups, Harley and Finely.... complete with mint bow ties and matching leashes. It's always an adventure with doggies on a shoot, but they came prepared with hot dog treats to help them cooperate! I'd say the future ring-bearers did a good job. Always a good practice to be in front of the camera for them too, haha!
With the love Madison and David share, it was easy to capture it in their photos. I know it's going to be a beautiful wedding next fall at Retzlaff Vineyards. I'm happy I get to create some more romantic and meaningful photos for these two that will last them a lifetime!
