Gorgeous Oceanfront Carmel Engagement Session | Laura Hernandez Photography

There are those couples that light up a room the second they walk in. Not the loud ones that demand attention, but the ones where their love engulfs all the room’s oxygen. Melissa with her contagious smile, Nick with his compassionate heart, you know with every ounce of your being that they were meant to be together. With the wedding only three weeks away, we met early over coffee, and talked about all the final wedding details coming together. From the moment this session started, we knew it was going to be awesome. We were all charged up on caffeine and were ready to go!

When choosing locations, we always ask clients if there’s somewhere special or meaningful they have in mind. Melissa and Nick left it completely up to us to surprise them. A few weeks ago, because of a wrong turn, Rachel wound up going down this windy Carmel hillside, which ended up in this majestic forest. She knew that moment, this is where we were bring them. Literally, we pulled along the side of the road, and magic happened. Oh the light! Then we ended up along the beach, capturing these two as the sun set beneath the Monterey Bay.

Melissa and Nick, you two are such an inspiring couple, and we cannot wait for your wedding!

Maternity Portraits | Laura Hernandez Photography

Not often do we get to do maternity session. However, when we do, we LOVE them! It was a 90 degree day in Carmel Valley, and if you’re familiar with the weather along the California coast, this is H-O-T! We couldn’t think of a better way to help keep this mama-to-be cool, that a day at the river. Cecelia arrived in this gorgeous Sew Trendy maternity dress, which was absolutely perfect for what we had planned. Congratulations you two! In just a few short weeks, we can’t wait to meet your new bundle of joy!

Gorgeous Perry House Wedding | Monterey, CA by Laura Hernandez Photography

She peeked through the stairway pillars as all her girls filled the room. Her elegance and grace seemed to carry her as she walked. It was her wedding day and she was totally calm and collected. Jackie was about to marry the man of her dreams, her man in black, her federal agent. Yes, we watch too much Law and Order, but a wedding full of FBI agents was pretty awesome.

Over the years, these two have fallen so deeply in love. Fallen in the literal since, Jackie is a skydive instructor, and Shawn had been her student. Together they have done hundreds of jumps, and were about to take the biggest plunge of their life into marital bliss.

On a gorgeous sunny afternoon in Monterey, Jackie and Shawn invited their family and friends to The Perry House to witness them exchange vows and dance the night away beneath the twinkling lights. It was breathtaking.

Jackie and Shawn, we hope you living it up in the Bahamas as husband and wife. We wish you only the best, and were honored to capture your special day.
