They met how most of us meet each other nowadays. It wasn’t an accidental run in at the bookstore or an innocent, “Can I buy you a drink?” At a downtown San Jose, California bar. No, we discovered at this Carmel destination engagement session that Carla & Isaac are pretty much our couple soulmates. Thanks to online dating, this Carmel destination engagement session was one for the books!
Carla & Isaac met on Coffee Meets Bagel—ever heard of it? We hadn’t either until friends of ours introduced us to it a couple years ago and our love story started over some digital coffee beans. And that’s how Carla & Isaac’s love story started that led to this Carmel destination engagement session! After growing up in Florida and ready for a fresh start, Carla up and moved to the Bay Area where her future husband had been living his whole life.
Much like us, Carla & Isaac’s story was one that couldn’t be stopped. First and second dates happened within days of each other, and the rest is history! They actually went to get ice cream for their first date, and Isaac and knows that vanilla is simply the best… because it’s classic. In fact, he said something quite true: “There’s a reason most of the best ice cream flavors are vanilla based.” And next year, these two will tie the knot at their own destination wedding in San Diego, California! How cool is that!?
Carla & Isaac: we had the time of our lives with you two, and we feel blessed to have gotten to know you and hear your story. We totally relate! Coffee Meets Bagel for the win, right!? Our fingers are crossed that we’ll have the pleasure of working with you again! In the meantime, we’re praying for your coming marriage and have fun with all the wedding planning!
These two loved this idea so much, they just had to have their own Carmel engagement session. Carla & Isaac traveled all the way from San Jose, California to have a very special and luxurious Carmel Engagement Session. This is our number one requested destination for engagement sessions, and you can see why! Carla scored two gorgeous dresses from Rent the Runway, which we recommend if you don’t want to add permanent pieces to your wardrobe. Mayra with Lash Out Loud did a wonderful job on our bride’s makeup! Isaac looked dapper in his suit from The Original Penguin and a classy tie from Macy’s. And Carla’s custom designed engagement ring came from Forever Diamonds and More. Dying to have your own Carmel engagement session? We’d love to talk to you!
We love destination engagement sessions. While we are dreaming of destinations like Lake Como engagement sessions or Santorini engagement sessions or Paris engagement sessions, there are so many breathtaking locations for a California destination engagement session. We recently photographed Shane & Morgan’s Yosemite engagement session and it was to die for! Other destination engagement sessions we’re looking for: Joshua Tree National Park engagement sessions and New York City engagement sessions are on our list! Dreaming of your own destination engagement session? Let’s chat!
This is how cool we are: we have vision boards. Well, they’re in our heads, but they’re vision boards nonetheless and we are dreaming of photographing destination weddings next year! We are Michael and Angela, a sweetheart team of California wedding photographers dreaming of being a destination wedding photographer all over the world!
