Bringing the Fun to Engagement Photography

Engagement shoots are a good way to have fun while commemorating your engagement. Based out of San Luis Obispo, Applemoon features the photography of Maren and Michael Brajkovich - photographers in love who would love to take your picture. Applemoon photography brings the fun to engagement photography by developing a pleasant rapport with clients to create timeless images that they will love for the rest of their lives.

Never Dated, Always Classic

Our style is fun, timeless, and fresh - never dated, always classic. Each couple also influences our style, as we tap into the essence that makes couples a couple. It's that very essence we capture, so couples have a true testament to the excitement they share as they begin to prepare the rest of their lives together. We love helping enable couples to become comfortable with the camera, as well as the both of us. The engagement shoot usually runs into something like a double date, since we ourselves are often asked if we are newlyweds. But, it's not about us - it's about you and making you feel great in front of our camera!

Locations: All About You

We go to astoundingly beautiful locations around San Luis Obispo county for engagement shoots - downtown SLO, Avila beach, numerous hill trails, Edna Valley or Paso Robles wineries, or whatever place holds personal meaning to a couples’ relationship. Choose a place that's special to you or that you find just plain gorgeous. One of our absolute favorite places is La Cuesta Ranch, which has plenty of rolling hill property, rocky mountain vistas, a historic barn, and a super fun staff. No matter what location, every couple makes each spot theirs. It's all about you guys: your energy, your interactions, your laughter, and your love. The setting is literally the backdrop to the relationship we capture with our cameras.

Let's Have a Blast

Wherever we go, we have a BLAST together. We know you'll shine in the ambiance we create, where you both are able to have fun in a casual atmosphere. Choosing Applemoon for engagement and wedding photography is smart because the affinity that is established between you and our cameras during the engagement shoot will carry over into your wedding day. We can't wait to work with you!
