A couple months ago, I had a strong urge to create a styled bridal shoot at Point Reyes. Specifically, I wanted to return to Chimney Rock Trail, which runs across the ridge crest of a narrow peninsula with expansive views of the coastline and Drakes Bay. Right below the cliffs, the comical elephant seals lay around in packs sunbathing all day...the life!
Our models, Lauren & Cam, just returned from a Tokyo trip as a newly engaged couple! Cam actually surprised Lauren with the proposal atop a ferris wheel, which I found to be one of the sweetest things ever. Filled with energy, we started up the trail and suddenly realized that we're in for an experience nothing short of exciting. Out on the exposed bluffs, we were hit with gusty winds which I later realized was recorded at 40mph that day. As cold as we got, our couple survived the adventure and was simply stunning in these images.
