Big Sur Engagement Shoot


I can’t say enough how much I love this engagement session by KELSEA HOLDER. The tones, the moodiness, the drama, the earthiness, the pure nature of it… it’s just fantastic!! Kelsea shares her words on the shoot below…

“We climbed rocks and crossed rivers for this stunning Engagement in the southern area of Big Sur! Sitting beneath trickling waterfalls, wading in the soft hues of the blue-green pools, Richard and Olivia had no fears and certainly didn’t mind getting a little wet! And I was right there with them, chest deep in the frigid and refreshing waters. It was invigorating being truly immersed in my work & surroundings, and cleansing to leave reality for that afternoon with my dear friends.I find it amazing how spending time in nature can help one feel more in touch with their humanity. I played with the darker tones from the deep waters which were shaded by all the trees. It was perfect for Olivia and Richard, and their more earthy style. The end result were these grainy, dreamy images!”

Indian Summer Inspiration


It was on a recent trip to Arizona that San Diego based photographer KATIE GRANT fell in love with the local Navajo art and their creations. It inspired her to incorporate some of these authentic pieces into a colourful, nature inspired editorial that put their beauty in the spotlight. Katie says, “The treelined path was the ideal space to set up our intimate table for two and the lush green trees complimented the Navajo colors perfectly. Hand painted pottery and hand carved wooden cutlery dress the table while miniature hand made drums hold the place cards. Quotes from Native American tribes inspired the invitation suite, the cake, and her loosely curled hair.
