When I first talked to Karolina and Ashley, they told me they wanted a photo from their wedding that captured them surrounded by the grandness of Big Sur. Something epic they could blow up big and hang on their wall.
No problem, I figured. They were getting married at Wind and Sea, a private home perched on a Pacific cliff, the majesty of the Big Sur coast spread out before it. In my mind I envisioned something with cliffs and ocean and the sunset.
But I quietly hoped for a clear night with no moon and a visible Milky Way, so I could do a shot exactly like the one at the top of this blog post.
