santa cruz california

i met kathy + craig at the santa cruz warf for their engagement session. our original plan of shooting along the boardwalk was delayed a bit due to the summer crowds. so we opted for the warf and the beach near the cliffs. we were able to snag a few shots near the rides before the sun disappeared.

kathy + craig contacted me before my trip back in march. in their introduction questionnaire, they mentioned that for them personally, capturing the people at the wedding was just as important as capturing them on the wedding day. and i completely agree. i was excited to meet with them in person and see that their genuine love for friends and family alike would be a major theme for their wedding day. that being said, i am honored to capture it this upcoming september.

for now, enjoy our wednesday night adventure around santa cruz beach.
