I live in San Jose, am getting married in Corralitos (sorta near Santa Cruz), and my photographer is in Monterey. I haven’t asked how far she is willing to travel for engagement pics, but I’d love location ideas.
We’re leaning towards the beach, but I want something else cool/fun nearby to do some pics too? Any ideas?

@DaniLyn: You can stop almost anywhere along Highway 1 for some good beach spots, especially places with dunes and coastal scrubland since they are a nice textural backdrop for pics. Lots of State Parks and Beaches along the coast between Half Moon Bay and Monterey. Santa Cruz pier might be good for some cute pics if it’s not too crowded

If you want somewhere semi-near Santa Cruz you can do the boardwalk at Santa Cruz, Seacliff Beach (Aptos) or Pajaro Dunes (Watsonville). You can also ask your photographer for suggestions.
