This past weekend I had the utmost pleasure to photograph the wedding of Tatiana and Raymond at the Pigeon Point State Park. Except for a bit of wind, the weather was fabulous with clear skies and temps in the 70’s.
If you are unfamiliar with Pigeon Point, it is one of the most beautiful locations along the San Mateo County coast. The lighthouse located there is 115 feet high and along with the Point Arena Lighthouse is the tallest on the west coast. It was first illuminated in 1871 and one Saturday evening each November, the lamp for the old Fresnel lens is once again illuminated and it is a spectacular sight to see. Click here to see what that looks like and for more information about the lighthouse. The lighthouse is undergoing a major renovation and the annual lighting has not occurred since 2010, with the anticipation that the next lighting will be in 2013.
