This was the first time I had done a shoot in Davenport in the fall. I'm always amazed at how the environment changes so drastically with the seasons. Somehow the grove of trees on the cliffs overlooking the pacific ocean has become even more magical. The fall is my favorite season, so I might be a bit biased.
This tiny little beach just outside of Santa Cruz is usually filled with students from UCSC on Friday evenings. It's a great place for bonfires. But this Friday evening, we had the entire beach to ourselves. We even got to take some fun pictures on the rocky ledges that lead down to the beach.
After making our way back up the cliff, we were able to watch the sunset over the ocean while basking in the warm golden light. It was so much fun getting to hang out with Holy & Jon. I can't wait to photograph their wedding next year at Gilroy Lodge on the Hill.
