For S+L’s engagement session, we had big plans to head to Sand Harbor Beach in Lake Tahoe; but when smoke from the Mosquito fire covered the lake just hours before their session, we had to pivot at the very last-minute! While the stress of last-minute changes is never ideal, S+L took it in stride. And what was ideal was the absolutely stunning afternoon we stumbled upon in Point Reyes! For their Cypress Tree Tunnel engagement session, S+L were greeted with blue skies and an incredible golden hour over the water.
If you’ve never been to Point Reyes, be sure to prepare to have little to no cell service once you pass through Novato. But as long as you make all of your arrangements beforehand, prepare yourself for a truly beautiful pocket of California! I’ve always been told to expect big crowds and foggy skies, but on a weekday afternoon in the Fall we had almost the entire, sunny beach to ourselves for S+L’s Cypress Tree Tunnel engagement!
HI, I’M ALLEXA!
I’m a wife, mom, Gryffindor, and photographer based in Northern California. I’m obsessed with all stages of Happily Ever After and capturing the in-between of people loving each other. I believe that the true magic of photography coexists with the posing; it’s in the forehead kisses, the giggles over unsaid jokes, and the blissful feeling of you & your partner cuddling your newborn baby on your couch; it’s in the way your dad looks at you when he sees you in your wedding dress, and the way your daughter laughs when you tickle her tummy. I’m currently booking for 2023 and would LOVE to chat more- be sure to reach out on my contact page or come say hi on Instagram!
