Carmel is one of my favorite places to visit! There are beautiful wedding venues in Carmel Valley and adorable little shops downtown in Carmel by the Sea. I recently went down there to photograph Charissa and Chris’ engagement session! They wanted to take some of the photos in downtown Carmel by all the cute shops and then finish the session on the beach for sunset. I found a few cute spots throughout downtown that had pretty Spanish tiles, arched doorways, and beautiful flowers. We spent the evening walking around Carmel stopping off at these different spots and then drove down to Carmel Beach and had the perfect sunset! These two are so sweet and I loved getting to photograph their engagement session!
