Adventure Story – Jade Cove Proposal in Big Sur, CA.

Marty had inquired on my contact form about proposing in Jade Cove, which is about 45 minutes south of the town of Big Sur, and the Big Sur State Park. The first time that Marty had driven up Highway 1 years ago he told himself that the view from Jade Cove he would save for someone that he wanted to marry. Now, years later Marty brought his fiance here to propose to with the view of the California coastline in the background!

After the proposal Marty headed off with his fiance and spent the night in the cutest AirBnB, and had dinner at the Nepenthe!


As a Big Sur Photographer most of the couples that I work with travel from across the county and the world to experience the California coastline. From Santa Barbara, all the way up through the Coast of Big Sur, to Carmel even Napa the things that I enjoy most about the coast is sharing it with couples that are visiting or planning their California Weddings nearby.
