Jesus and Lorena traveled to Montana de Oro for a stunning, foggy coastal engagement session with me last month. I knew these two were dream clients to begin with, because Lorena mentioned before we booked that they loved my work and were going to do whatever to make it happen.

I am so glad they did, because we had a freakin blast during their engagement shoot! Being a wedding photographer is one of the best jobs in the entire world – seriously you guys. Not only do I get to travel to pretty places, but I get to work with some of the nicest people ever!

Scroll through this blog to see some of my favorites from this engagement session. Normally, I am all about that sunlight. But this foggy coastal weather set the tone for a romantic, and intimate engagement shoot. And tell me in the comments which photo was your fav!

If my brides are having trouble finding the perfect dress for their engagement shoot, check out stores like David’s Bridal! Lorena got this “bridesmaid” dress off the sale rack and it was so perfect. Another option, which is a personal fav of mine, is to pair a flowing maxi skirt with a cute top. Here’s a link to one of my favorite skirts!
