When it comes to beach sessions, there’s a hidden gem that holds a special place in my heart—Gray Whale Cove State Beach, also known as Devil’s Slide.
Although it has a strange name, I find Gray Whale Cove truly poetic. It perfectly captures the mystique and enchantment of this coastal paradise.
The journey to Gray Whale Cove Beach is not for the faint of heart, with a steep walk down to the beach serving as the threshold to this hidden haven.
But fear not, for the descent is rewarded with the breathtaking beauty of a cove embraced by colossal cliffs, setting the stage for a truly magical engagement session.
As the sun begins its descent, a transformation occurs.
The lighting at Gray Whale Cove during this golden hour is nothing short of divine, casting a warm and ethereal glow that turns each moment into a work of art. It was in this enchanting setting that I had the privilege of capturing Ana and Brean’s love story.
We started their session at the top. The panoramic views from the cliffs offered a breathtaking backdrop for the initial photos of their engagement session.
Ana and Brean were filled with excitement and love. We made the trek down to the beach—a journey that only added to the adventure and charm of the day.
The soft sand beneath our feet and the sounds of the waves welcomed us to the heart of Gray Whale Cove.
These two were true troopers as we navigated the trek!
As a photographer, capturing their genuine connection against the backdrop of this natural wonder was an absolute joy. The photos tell their timeless love story.
