Adventure Session in beautiful Big Sur

Description of your Big Sur Adventure Session

Let’s go on a hike or explore multiple locations along Highway 1 in Big Sur! This area offers towering redwoods, mountains cascading down into the ocean as far as the eye can see and beautiful beaches. The landscape is vast and there is something for everyone who is visiting Big Sur!

There is nothing greater for me than to see the reactions this land casts upon its first time visitors. Big Sur offers not just incredible scenery, but amazing accommodations as well. Even if you aren’t feeling fancy, there are many camp sites to choose from as well. I would love to also give you recommendations on where to stay & eat while in the area.

Winter rainstorms do happen and this is usually the only time of year when weather can interfere with plans because mudslides can occur during heavy rainfalls. The best time to plan a visit is in the summer, but any time between March and October will make for pleasant weather. Wildfires–although uncommon–do occur as well.

About the Host of your Big Sur Adventure Session

LiBig Sur Adventure Photographerving now on the Central Coast in California, I spend my time photographing as much as possible. I am passionate about conservation & preserving our beautiful planet–not only for future generations but also for the creatures that inhabit the world today. Nothing gives me greater joy than traveling to different lands to seek new sights, especially that of Africa. I am so excited for you to visit Big Sur, so I can show you some beautiful spots!

Itinerary of your Adventure Session in beautiful Big Sur

Each session is customized for each couple I work with. During the planning stages we will discuss in detail what scenery you are hoping to capture along with your photos. We can spend all our time in one spot, or experience several locations within our timeframe to get more variety.

Typically, couples love to visit minimum (2) spots during our session. I highly recommend visiting a coastal spot along with a forest area, so you can really experience what Big Sur has to offer.

Sample itinerary:

  • Meet at Garrapata State Park, meet & greet for 10 minutes and make sure we have everything we need
  • Start hike and stay for 45 minutes-1 hour in this first location
  • Travel along Highway 1 and stop along various pull-outs for more photos, including Bixby Creek Bridge
  • Go to the Big Sur Tap House for celebration drinks!
