Styled Beach Steam Photo Shoot

My schedule is mostly filled with engagement sessions these days as we wait for Arizona wedding season to kick off. Because summer is slow, I also get the opportunity to work on some passion projects like this one. Brittany is a talented photographer herself. She and her husband took a romantic getaway to the beach to do this edgy styled session with me. Big Sur, California is filled with dramatic coast line and is the perfect place for a couple steam session like this one.

Brittany was nothing short of a siren out of a fisherman’s tale. This fit and flare embroidered gown, paired with accessories like this pink crystal crown, was perfect for a beachy mermaid look. The couple’s all-black outfits and tattoos gave it that edgy vibe.

I typically try to schedule sessions around sunrise or sunset for the best lighting. Sometimes it’s nice to go just a bit off of that schedule for a new challenge with harsh light. As long as the sun isn’t directly overhead, harsh light lets me play with shadows for a moodier look that’s still bright and sunny. While most steam sessions are dim and moody, this sun-drenched shoot is unique.
This golden sun-inspired crown officially makes Brittany queen of the headpiece, and a sun goddess.

Dreaming of Big Sur, or your own couple’s steam session?

Steam sessions are great for an anniversary or just any time you want to celebrate yourselves as a couple. They can be done in a rad destination like Big Sur, or we can keep it simple and do an in-home session!

The California coast and Big Sur are destinations in their own. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to showcase more of the lush green cliffsides that surround the dramatic coastline. I loved getting creative with this couple steam session, and Big Sur is on my bucket list for an elopement or even just an engagement session!
