During their Carmel city center engagement session, I found out that Jessica and Cody are models in disguise! The two are so natural in front of the camera. Plus, they are so adorable when interacting with each other. Jessica’s giggly personality brought so much life and movement to our session, and Cody’s soft smiles added personable and sincere moments.
We started at the Center for Performing Arts in Carmel for their cloudy and cool engagement session. Frequently called the Palladium, the Center for Performing Arts had gorgeous white walls and gardens that surround the property. The gardens seemed to be a natural place to start as we walked, talked, and laughed through the beginning of our shoot. After shooting in the gardens, we walked across the street to the reflecting pool directly behind the Veterans Memorial. I love shooting next to water, so the reflecting pool was perfect for our session. We walked all the way around it, shooting at various angles as we went.
After a quick wardrobe change, we headed West to Coxhall Gardens. This is one of the loveliest places to shoot, and it didn’t disappoint. The willows, lakes, and the amphitheater are some of my favorite things about the Gardens. So after making sure we had pictures next to the willows, we took some twirling shots at the amphitheater to end our night!! <3
Jessica and Cody, it was such a blessing to get to know you two better and capture your love story! I loved seeing your distinct personalities shine through in your engagement images! I am so excited for you two, and I cannot wait for your February wedding!
