Corey and Michelle are a match made on…. Craigslist! Yes, they met on the same site you can swap old car tires for a pair of A’s tickets. We had an amazing time at their engagement session in the wine country where we did a “Save the Date” film (link to the video) in addition to the portraits (separate blog post for those)
As you can see from that video, this couple are the ultimate romantics and completely bonkers about each other. Their love is so easily captured in photos, they were the perfect couple to do some extra wedding portraits for at The Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. There are tons of great spots for doing portraits at this hotel, which allows public access and free parking (which is limited and sometimes full on weekends). Just to the south of the hotel there is path way that parallels the cliff. All along this stretch the backdrop of the hotel and ocean combined make for beautiful portraits but you’ll notice that one of the shots here is somewhat high pointing downward. Well that’s a trade secret, but no I didn’t use a helicopter for that shot! Sunset is obviously a great time to be here and we all paused and took in the amazing last few minutes of daylight. Thanks guys for the wonderful day at this gorgeous spot on the coast!
