big sur wedding photographers

Central coast wedding photography encompasses a wide and diverse swath of California coastline; from Paso Robles in the south to the wild coastline of Half Moon Bay on the proximal end of the finger that is the San Francisco peninsula. The Pacific Coast Highway displays every facet of her personality on this precipitous yet breathtaking journey north to San Francisco at the abrupt meeting point of the Santa Lucia Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. We most commonly photograph Big Sur Weddings, however, we also love Monterey Peninsula weddings, Ocean Grove weddings, and weddings in Carmel by the Sea; the central coast is unparalleled in natural beauty and serenity. 

Iconic California on every level, if you’ve seen just one copy of Sunset Magazine photography over the past 50 years, you’ll immediately recognize the central coast jewels Big Sur, Carmel, and Monterey. From the rugged coastline of Big Sur, to the legendary links of Pebble Beach, to the farms and vineyards of Carmel Valley, to the serene redwoods of Julia Pfeiffer-Burns State Park, California’s Central Coast is an absolutely charmed place . With iconic landmarks – both natural and man-made – like the Lone Cypress, Bixby Bridge, Cannery Row, and the Point Lobos marine reserve, this corner of the state is visually striking, rich in natural history, and instantly memorable. The lone cypress has grazed the cover of endless wedding invitations and iconic landscapes are a signature of the central coast. Big Sur and the Carmel coast is ideally suited to smaller wedding parties, intimate weddings, and Big Sur elopement photography. We work regularly with several great officiants in the area and are adept at working with the often unpredictable Big Sur weather to guarantee we’ll always have plenty of great location options for photography.

Warm and woodsy Ventana is perched atop the Pacific ocean and can accommodate smaller weddings, intimate weddings, and welcome elopement photography. Their luxury Big Sur wedding venue offers everything you need for an all-inclusive wedding with incredible dining, world class views, and luxury accommodation. Further up the coast, Carmel Valley weddings are the warmest of the Big Sur, Carmel, and Monterey weddings because of their distance from the cool Pacific breezes. Bernardus lodge weddings offer all-inclusive wedding accommodation, wedding ceremony, wedding reception, and wedding photography portrait options for the discerning couple who place priority on great food and great wine for their wedding reception. If you’re looking for redwoods wedding photography on an exclusive nature preserve in the heart of Carmel, Santa Lucia preserve is a perfect option. Set in a private community, your Santa Lucia preserve wedding can take place in several beautiful natural locations with your Santa Lucia wedding reception held in the rustic luxury of their lodge.
