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!
