Truth be told, before this photoshoot I had never been to the Pismo Dunes. When Chris + Steven talked about having their couples session near the beach I knew I wanted to take them to the Oceano – Pismo Dunes.
We started off by meeting downtown to hang out and get to know each other. Chris and I had worked together at Starbucks, but this was the first time I was meeting Steven. I quickly realized how special Steven was and what a tremendous couple they made together. We talked for a little bit before we walked downtown for a bit. We passed by the famous cinnamon roll shop in Pismo and neither Chris or myself had ever tried one. So of course we had to stop to get one. It got a little messy + sticky so not many photos were taken, but here are just a few. I highly recommend stopping by the Old West Cinnamon Roll Shop if you have never tried it. They were DELICIOUS.
I forgot my camera harness. To non-photographers, this might not seem like a big deal. But let me tell you, it can get tiresome holding on to a 4-pound camera/lens trying to hike up mounds of sand is not easy. Since that session, I have never forgotten a camera harness, actually now they just never leave the trunk of my car.
We ran down some dunes, rolled around in the sand and of course a piggyback ride or two.
Remember when I told you I had never been to Pismo Dunes before, well I didn’t realize how far away the beach was to the dunes. So instead of walking like I originally planned, we made a quick 5 minute drive to the beach to catch the last bit of sunset.
