Interested in an adventurous couple photoshoot in California? Come with me on a Big Sur Photoshoot Adventure!
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 to have an amazing Big Sur Photoshoot Adventure!
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 for your Big Sur photoshoot adventure and on where to stay & eat while in the area.
Photoshoot length: 2 hours & half-day coverage available
Meeting point: Garrapata State Park in Big Sur
Number of participants: 2 people
Experience: Hiking or easy-going adventure session located in the Big Sur region of California.
Climate: Beautiful weather year-round with a short wet season between November-February. Temperatures generally average between 50-70 F for the year. 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.
Available: All year
Recommended season: Spring
Fitness level: There are hikes & stops available for all fitness levels
Meet your Big Sur Photographer
Living 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 the area, so I can show you some beautiful spots during your Big Sur photoshoot adventure!
Big Sur Photoshoot Adventure - Itinerary
Each Big Sur photoshoot adventure 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 the timeframe of your Big Sur photoshoot to get more variety.
Typically, couples love to visit minimum (2) spots during their Big Sur photoshoot adventure. I highly recommend visiting a coastal spot along with a forest area, so you can really experience what Big Sur has to offer.

Meet at Garrapata State Park, meet & greet for 10 minutes and make sure we have everything we need
