Monterey Engagement Session | Alvarado Street Brewery

April 20, 2023

Sally + Joe

Let’s have a little chat about Engagement sessions shall we! Having your engagement session be meaningful to you will make your time with me that much more enjoyable!  Your pictures will be more authentic and when put up on your wall will stay close to your heart with many years to come! 

So how does one make an engagement session have more of an impact? I always like to ask my clients what’s a place that you two together hold close to your heart, and for Sally and Joe that answer was easy; their first date! Yes!!!!  Let’s go to the place where you two met for the very first time! Let’s relive some of those exciting moments, get the same drinks you ordered that day or an appetizer you shared together.  Everything Sally does she does with such crazy intent and I love it.  When she contacted the Alvarado Street Brewery about this idea she even asked for them to hold the table they first had their date at. Every piece of clothing or jewelry she had on had meaning. Sally and Joe met during the Covid 19 Pandemic, back when we masked up and everything was happening outside. While some of our shoot happened inside at the bar and out back with the gorgeous gardens, we made sure to capture some fun moments out front at their table! 

Since my sessions include two locations if close to one another we finished out by going to the nearby beach where they had their 2nd date! Yes, not just their first date, but their 2nd one was included! We had so much fun hanging on the beach for a beautiful sunset portion! Enjoy some of my favorite fun and flirty moments between this super fun couple!
