Port Costa Engagement Shoot

Carly and Ronald held their Port Costa engagement shoot on a gorgeous day in the summer. They chose Port Costa, a small town a few miles from Crockett, California, because it held special meaning to them during their dating lives. Situated by San Pablo Bay, Carly and Ronald would spend hours upon hours in the evening by the water’s edge, talking into the early morning getting to know each other. This isolated area allowed them to be together in silence and solitude and not be distracted by outside noises even during the day. I always love photographing at unique and personal locations even if its not the most scenic because it allows me to break out of any potential bubble photographing the same photos out of familiarity with the location. After spending some time by the water’s edge, incorporating their favorite bench and showing off the sunset, we drove a short distance to another of their favorite locations, overlooking the city and Alfred Zampa Bridge.

By the time we got there the sun had already set, but that did not deter us as we got some amazing dusk colors for some evening portraits. It was great coming back to Crockett, a city that most people would drive by since it is right by the Carquinez Bridge and is the last exit before going onto the bridge. It is always a treat coming back to Crockett because that is where I photographed Anna and Brian’s wedding at the Old Homestead House a few years ago. They chose that location since the Zampa Family has been there for generations (the bridge is named after Anna’s great grandfather!)

Thanks again for having me capture your Porta Costa engagement shoot, Carly and Ronald, and for sharing your secret spot with me! 😀
