When I spoke to Maria about the engagement shoot, I could hear how special Carmel village was to her and Tony. Carmel-by-the-sea is genuinely a fairytale town. I had a great time exploring all the hidden alleys and admiring the range of European architecture the little town offers. From gorgeous Tudor-style Art Gallery's to midievil looking Inn's, there is a gem hidden around every corner of this tiny seaside town in Monterey County.
After exploring the village, we headed down to the beach. The sand is soft and white as snow, while the water is bright and blue. Santa Cruz is beautiful, but the ocean always seems bluer in Carmel.
I'm looking forward to photographing Maria & Tony's spring wedding next year right here in Carmel.
