Beach Portraits - Modesto Senior Photographer

I’ve been a busy bee lately so I’m a little behind in posting some of my recent sessions.  Haley is an awesome all around person and awesome people love the beach…at least that’s how I view the world.  I’ve been doing a lot of local senior portrait sessions lately so I was thrilled when Haley wanted to head out-of-town to towards the sunny coast.  We did the indoor session the day before and had the opportunity to create a number of beautiful classic images and some featuring Haley’s volleyball stuff.  Did I mention Haley’s a great volleyball player?  Well, now I have.

The next day we headed to one of my favorite places in the world, Carmel-by-the-Sea, for Haley’s outdoor session.  We started in the village’s lovely downtown park where I got to meet Oscar, Haley’s very cute K9.  After some time in the grass we moved to the open air mall across the street and finally ending up at my favorite beach in the area.  The conditions were perfect with soft warm light, a slight breeze and big waves crashing against the large rocks that highlight this particular stretch of beach.  We created a number of images, including the one above, what a moment!

Here are a few images from Haley’s session, enjoy!

Monterey Wedding Photography

Monterey Wedding Photography by Edward Mendes

It’s been amazing getting to know Stephanie and Chris since day one. I’m very lucky to have worked with so many wonderful clients over the years and these two certainly rate right up there with the best. Since they stopped by for the initial consultation they’ve been excited, friendly and a ton of fun.

Chris and Stephanie had a beautiful beach front wedding at the lovely Monterey Beach Resort in Monterey, California. The California coast, and this part of it specifically, is one of my favorite places in the world to both work and play so getting to photograph the wedding there was great.  Monterey Wedding Photography…not a bad job!

Chris is a big football fan and wanted to incorporate his passion for the game into the images we created with the guys. I can’t think of a better way to do that then a little football game on the beach before the ceremony just to keep things loose. As Chris tossed a couple touchdowns, Stephanie was looking stunning as she had her hair and makeup done with her bridesmaids.

Surrounded by friends and family, their day was stunning! Filled with love and laughter it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to share in the event and create the memories of their wedding day. Congratulations, Stephanie and Chris!
