There is something magical about a sunrise. There is a stillness in the air, the light is soft and the world is quiet. Rachel and Dustin had this idea for their engagement session: tide pooling – something they love doing together. I was thrilled with the idea. Yes, we had to start shooting at 5:30 am ( Yes, AM!) for the low tide. I knew it would be amazing. Equally amazing is how motivated I get when it comes to photography even though I had to wake up when it was still dark outside. Thank goodness Jeff came along. We decided on Fitzgerald Reserve in Moss Beach, CA – a beautiful beach with lots of tide pools . By chance we got the last moments of the Super Moon. It was the kind of shoot when everything was aligned…the moon, the stars and the tide. A lot like when Dustin and Rachel met. Now we will be celebrating their wedding which I am sure will be just as magical.
