I’m not entirely sure how this happened — I’ve lost count of the number of engagement sessions I’ve done at the beach, and I’ve shot over a dozen sunrise sessions in the past year, but somehow this was the very first time I’ve ever shot an engagement session, on the beach, as the sun rose.
It. Was. Gorgeous! Really, it was like a beach fairytale was happening in front of my camera!
Obligatory bling shot — yes, I mean both the sunrise and the gorgeous ring!
Could these two have looked any happier/more wonderful?!
And my favorite shot of the morning, this next one, proved all over again why I love capturing my subjects’ personalities. I knew I wanted to get an image of him kissing her hand, but I wanted it to look natural. I asked if he ever kissed her hand, and if so, how. He said he does pretty often, but always only when they’re walking — he’ll simply lift her hands up to his lips as they go.
So I asked them to show me. But I think, as is always the case with my very favorite shots, for just a moment they completely forgot I was there.
Thank you so much for letting me in on this beautiful morning with you two!
