Juan and Jesika are engaged! We celebrated this exciting season in their lives by kicking it on the shores of Montana de Oro in Los Osos, California. Our coastline has some truly stunning beaches, and this was no exception. I love doing sessions at this unique location; it’s so beautiful!

How stunning does this bride to be look in white! Ahh! I cannot wait to see what beautiful gown she walks down the aisle in. Juan was smitten this entire session with his babe of a fiance, and can you blame him?

These eucalyptus trees though – MELT MY HEART! I cannot get enough of their beauty! Montana de Oro has an entire section of road just lined with these trees and paths all around the park.

Check out some of my other sessions at this location here.
