Monterey elopement photographer // PNW couples adventure session

Cordero and Malina are locals to Monterey California and are high school sweet hearts. They have been married for a year and wanted to capture their love in a more intimate way post wedding. Initially I had really wanted to have them on a rock surrounded by the ocean; as tides changed the rock was quickly covered and I was so grateful that Cordero and Malina were up for just jumping in!! Our ocean and climate here in Monterey California is not the warmest and they were such troopers! The pacific north west is generally pretty moderate but with fog, chilly temps and wind in the afternoon. I feel so fortunate to live on the Monterey coast of California and to call photography my job. Thanks Malina for choosing me to capture your moments!
