Samantha & Brooke booked me as their videographer for their Big Sur Elopement in April & a few months before they reached out & asked if we could do a morning after session while we were there! I always love these because I think there’s something so special about documenting your first official day as a married couple by having those giddy feelings documented. To see some moments from their actual elopement, follow me on instagram!

The morning after Sam & Brooke said “I do”, we woke up before the sun and drove about 30 minutes down the road from Monterey to the famous Bixby Bridge location. If you’re planning on shooting anywhere in Big Sur during peak season, (April-October) I’d recommend opting for a time frame during sunrise! Due to the high traffic volume, most spots right along the highway, like this bridge, are fulllll of tourists coming and going, so I’ve found that I’m working around/editing out less tourists when I shoot during the early morning! Here’s a link to a blog post with a few other location options to shoot at in the pretty city of Big Sur.

Back to Sam & Brooke though, these two have hearts of GOLD. Forreal. They were so sweet and thoughtful throughout our entire experience of working together. I consider myself so very lucky to make such great friends like them through this job! It means so so much to be trusted to document these moments :,)

If these photos don’t convince you to book a morning after session with your wedding photographer, I just don’t know what will 😉 Visit me here on my website to shoot me an inquiry if you’re ready to have some print worthy photos of you & your other half!
