Once we decided to head to the coast for Lindsay and Phil's engagement session, I was determined to take some photos in a spot that I hadn't shot before. We planned on making a day of it and to stop for some wine tasting on our way over, so I knew we'd have plenty of time to find the perfect place.
I love when my couples choose a day trip for their engagement session. Not only do I thoroughly enjoy being camera-wielding-third-wheel, but we're also able to utilize multiple locations for photos. Our first stop was Tooth & Nail Winery which was already buzzing with lovers ( It was then that it dawned on me, it was the day before Valentine's day!) We tasted some wine and shared the yummiest fries while attempting to come up with a game plan.
The plan was...
There was no plan... it's also my favorite plan. Lindsay and Phil were up for anything and perfectly fine with going with the flow. So, we just let the day flow...
After snapping some photos at the winery we hopped in the car and headed towards the ocean. We walked through the pines in Cambria, stopped for some more wine at Harmony Cellars, and made it to Cayucos just in time to watch the sunset with our toes in the sand.
THIS was the location that I had been needing to shoot at. I had driven past the shipwreck multiple times, and had even walked nearby a month or so before, always telling myself it'd be fun to take photos there someday. Welp, February 13. 2021 was the day, and it was SO DANG FUN! These two were the perfect couple to explore the spot with, as you definitely have to be a little adventurous to get there and lucky enough that the tide allows access. Also, peep the Titanic pose at the end!
Phil's one request for the day was some fish 'n' chips, so we topped off the night with some grub from Duckie's and headed home.
