Marian and Thomas were such a wonderful and sweet couple to shoot, there is a genuine connection between the two of them that you can see when you watch them together. We met up few weeks ago for their session, in a beautiful little "pasture" of rolling hills and buttercups and dandelions. The picturesque setting was in place, now we just needed the weather to cooperate! Annnnd right as we were about to start shooting it began to drizzle out. Thankfully it didn't end up turning into much more than that, and we managed to leave the umbrellas off to the side. These two were so relaxed and ignored the rain like it was no big deal...! Their smiles were bright and warm and I so enjoyed capturing the little moments between them as they held one another, looking so full of joy and excitement.
I'm so happy to get to share their engagement pictures with you today, and I can't wait to be there to photography their wedding day for them next summer. . . !
Blogging a little #throwback post for you all today...!
Actually I was looking through my drafts recently and found this....it was finished, (as of many months ago, haha) but I guess I forgot to get around to publishing! So I thought, hey why not!
I loved coming across these shots and reliving these memories through them again! That really was a great trip we were able to take last summer. Seeing the beauty of the Pacific along the coastline of California together as a family was so special to be able to experience! We took these pictures at a stop on the side of the road by Rocky Creek Bridge along Route 1. If you've ever driven the #1 in Calif before....you can understand the love-hate relationship with this road. It has really incredible views, yes, but by the end of it you're like "Get us off this"!! Let's just say I'm glad I wasn't in the drivers seat. And, also that by that point I was far enough along in my pregnancy that I didn't have my 'all-day-morning-sickness' very badly anymore. With all those twists and turns and sharp corners, that might not have ended well for me if I did. (Thank you to my father-in-law and husband for doing a great job behind the wheel!)
Enjoy these pictures of the beautiful Big Sur coast . . . !
Wife and mother,
