Every couple has a special place that hold a special meaning for them. For Thanh and Shaun that place is Carmel. Along the beautiful coastline of Carmel, with the ring that he secretly purchased just a few days before, Shaun got down on his knee and asked, Thanh said yes. They chose one of my favorite places for their engagement pictures. Carmel by the Sea Beach is located right next to the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Resort. I just love spending a day taking in the view of the ocean in front of me and the view of the golf course on the cliffs behind me. I feel a world away from home. We spent a late afternoon having fun strolling through downtown Carmel by the Sea and wrapped up the engagement pictures just before sunset at Carmel by the Sea Beach. I adore this beautiful couple and I’m looking forward to their wedding next year in Monterey!
