Capitola Beach Sunset Engagement Shoot

Capitola Beach Sunset Engagement Shoot

It’s been rainy… rainy… RAINY for weeks, and it’s been a real challenge to schedule (and reschedule) around the weather since 2019 started. It had been raining on and off all day, and I knew my clients were coming from the East Bay for their engagement shoot, so I was worried they’d drive all this way for nothing. Luckily we caught a break about 45 minutes before sunset on the beach in Capitola, California. Sweet! I’m shooting with to very different cameras now, my trusty Nikon D850 and my new mirrorless Nikon Z6. They are both amazing pieces of tech, and while it’s generally more efficient to shoot two of the same camera bodies (especially when it comes to editing), I’m embracing the unique way each camera renders light and color, bringing more variety for my wedding clients. All the wide-angle shots below are with the Z6, the tighter shots with the D850. Which do you like best? Enjoy…

Along the coast, it can often get foggy, especially in the summer. While some clients get bummed about this, I simply tell them that this weather has its own beauty, an ethereal magical quality to it. Plus, we're more likely to have a much more private session in a public arena since all the sunbathers have gone home! The purpose of this shoot was to get some save-the-date photos for this couple that included their lil' pups. So cute, right? Here's a few of my favorites from their engagement session in Capitola, California.

These two lovely ladies chose one of my favorite locations for their engagement shoot – Capitola Beach. For their mini-engagement session, we stuck close to the beach, hitting all the best features: the wharf, open water and of course the colorful buildings of Venetian Village. These two were SO easy to work with, all smiles and of course being GORGEOUS doesn't hurt. They are very easygoing, all smiles, and I'm truly looking forward to their wedding this year.
