Whenever a couple chooses to have their engagement session at the beach I am always cheering inside silently until the day of their photo shoot arrives. I won’t sway anyone in any direction whether they are considering a park, beach, indoors at home, local coffee shop… I let them picture what their perfect in love setting would be… but when it happens to be at the beach, there’s something so romantic about the beach. Somehow the combination of land and water always gets to me. I’ll be browsing Pinterest boards and those photographs that were taken either by the ocean or lake have that extra factor that makes my heart sing. Add the beautiful colors of a sunrise or sunset and I am in love.
I can say that Julia and I have the same kind of incline about the ocean. I loved everything about the way the sun peaked through all those clouds enough to have me and everyone there in awe of what a pretty morning it was. It had been a while since I had witnessed such a pink, orange and gold sunrise. Having two love birds as models was the perfect combination for an amazing session. These are my favorites of our time together.
“Alberto and I met when we were both still in High School through mutual friends. We are best friends and I couldn’t imagine not having him by my side. He has been there for me during the happiest and saddest moments since the day I met him. He supports my obsession with all things nautical and proposed at the beach, and of course we had to have our engagement pictures there too.”
Right about the time they went away for an outfit change the day drastically changed and it began to rain. But that didn’t stop us. Even though it would sprinkle on an off, Julia was all sparkles. Literally. 😉
“Julia is my only true love. She inspires me to be better everyday and with her I feel complete.”
Looking at the session as a whole you wouldn’t think we shot them the same day or within minutes of each other. The power of that initial golden light disappears way too fast for my liking. It’s just about the end of 2016 but I have one more session I want to blog before I wrap up the year. Stay tuned tomorrow for another sweet and charming engagement session.
