I’m highlighting Ashley and James’s sunset-filled Laguna Beach engagement session today – but here’s an insider secret: their wedding actually happened last weekend. This engagement session was just too good not to share! Don’t worry, I’ll be posting all the *gorgeous* images from their wedding soon. Stay tuned for that!
Southern California has no shortage of beaches. I’m sure that comes as no surprise to you. Everyone who lives here tends to have their favorites though, and the beaches of Laguna are hands-down mine. I’m always thrilled when my couples choose Laguna beach as the backdrop from their photos because I know beautiful images will result.
Laguna Beach Engagement Session
This engagement session was actually the first time I met Ashley and James in person. It common for couples to feel a bit nervous in front of the camera – especially when they are new to the photographer, but this wasn’t the case with Ashley and James at all. Within a few minutes, we were laughing, joking and getting stunning images. By the end of this Laguna Beach engagement session, my heart was so full and I had the biggest smile on my face. These two are AWESOME!
As you know, I’m a big advocate for couples having an engagement session. I particularly love having this one-on-one time with them and the value of this time directly correlates with a successful wedding day experience. After the engagement session, I am no longer a stranger my couples and our time provided an opportunity to build a mutual trust that allows for real moments to happen. This is what it’s all about and honest, it’s the straightest path to getting stunning images.
Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for Ashley and Jame’s wedding on the blog. It was such a gorgeous day with them and their all-star team of vendors.
