Fairy Tale Carmel Engagement
// Shelby + Mike
If you don’t believe in fairy tale love stories, then you haven’t met Shelby + Mike.
You know those couples that you can’t imagine one without the other. The couples that go together like peanut butter and jelly. The ones that make you believe in soul mates. The kind you want to be around because they are so in love and have so much fun together that you can’t help but have fun with them—yep, Shelby + Mike are definitely on of those.
We started off the shoot exploring the many alleys and walls of the Carmel Arts District. After that, we traveled over to West Park where we spotted a hawk, hiked a giant hill, and witnessed an absolutely stunning sunset. Shelby + Mike incorporated subtle Beauty and the Beast inspired details throughout their shoot. Shelby’s STUNNING ballgown was definitely one for the books.
Between the love and laughter these two shared, the gown, the details, and the incredible lighting- I’m pretty sure I photographed a real life fairy tale.
I can’t even wait until next spring when these two become lifers and Nate and I get to photograph + film it.
