Recently I went up to San Luis Obispo County to meet with Katie and Bert and shoot their engagement session. We met at Creekside Brew in downtown San Luis Obispo. Creekside was the site of their first meeting, and I believe eventually their first of many dates together. We started off their engagement session in the basement of Creekside and downtown SLO. Afterwards we headed to Pirate’s Cove beach which is a beautiful secluded beach about halfway between Pismo Beach and Morro Bay. It’s a beautiful quiet beach including an incredible natural cave and a VERY intense hiking trail. Apparently Katie and Bert had been hiking up the trail the day before, and while I would say I was ill prepared with all my camera gear to hike up that trail with them, Katie was wearing flip flops, so … I guess we’ll call it even. The views from the trail and the beautiful yellow flowers covering both sides were well worth the short hike (We didn’t go to the top, it was a short hike, but the top would have certainly been a challenge!) As the sun started setting we made our way down to the beach for a few final shots.
