When I think of my favorite places in California I can quickly list off – Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Sonoma Coast – and within that Jenner and Point Reyes.
That said, I really haven’t had the chance to photograph a portrait, engagement session or wedding in Jenner and the Sonoma Coast State Park. So, when I did a giveaway recently on my instagram account for an engagement session – I was stoked when one of my winners – Stephanie of Off The Beaten Path Weddings (one of the BEST caterers and coordinators for Sonoma/Napa wine country weddings and beyond) – told me she loved the coast and we landed on Sonoma Coast being the PERFECT spot – starting with some wine tasting at the Tasting By The Sea in Jenner.
We went a little late on the wine tasting (what are you going to do when you’re sipping great wines next to the river/ocean with great company and awesome conversation???) but we still scored two AMAZING locations that give Big Sur a run for the money with maybe 1% the number of visitors…
I’ll be back for sure!!!
Thanks Stephanie and Jamal for being a RAD couple, fun to share wine with, and looking GREAT in front of my new FujiFilm camera system!!!
