We named this place after one of our couples as they have worked with us several times and came with a very specific mood board. This spot is nestled on the North Coast and offers a spectacular backdrop for amazing engagement photos. The contrast of elements is unmatched. Great way to differentiate looks from these rocks and the beach. We can create a great mix of drama, love and emotion here.
