The most perfect morning light, I love the way it reflects off the sand and the sea.

The weather was good to us for Dan + Mona’s engagement session in Half Moon Bay.

    These are stunning! The colors are so peaceful. My wife is from HMB so we visit often and we got married on a cliff at Poplar beach in 2008. It’s just so magical there. I’m a novice photographer, well at least up until this point it’s just been for fun, and I’m trying to learn more technically. Would you mind sharing what mm lens you used for these? Does it vary, or do you favor one in particular?

      Hi Stephanie! For a lot of these I’m using a medium format with a 80mm lens – which is about the equivalent of a 50mm if you are using a digital camera! I tend to stick with one lens – a fixed focal length – so I’m just moving myself when I want to get closer or farther away.

    Thank you! These are so beautiful! A friend of mine who is a professinal photographer also suggested the 50mm (1. 8f) lens.
