Chasing the Sun: This session with the beautiful and handsome Krystal and Alexi took place in one of my favorite places in California. Carmel-by the-Sea. Google it. It is other-worldly…almost out of a fairytale I once read as a little girl. Ethereal, whimsical, and magical are some of the words that come to my mind.
We photographed this engagement in light speed time! Crazy-like speed, blink and you-would-miss-it speed. The sun was almost gone, and we were chasing it as if there was no tomorrow. And then, in less than 20 minutes, something magical took place. A series of shots with a setting so moody and dark, they cannot help but show a mystical type of loveliness. The sky was purple..and the fog had rolled in to embrace the tops of the twisted cypress trees. When browsing through these photos I couldn’t help but make a “Twilight” comparison. But, then again, this vibe is up for subjective observation. One thing is for sure, it was such a pleasure photographing these two lovely people in such an enchanting atmosphere. Congratulations Krystal and Alexi on your upcoming marriage! Cheers!
