I always love when my couples come to me with awesome, new places to shoot. Places that I have never been or possibly wouldn’t have known existed if they hadn’t suggested it. When Stefanie emailed me about shooting at 31st Street beach, I immediately starting googling it and knew right away it was going to be awesome. Beach…skyline views…boats. What’s not to love? When I pulled up the day of our engagement session it was just as perfect as the pictures. Except better because the forecast had threatened rain so we basically had the whole place to ourselves. And when you add Stefanie and Xan into the mix…it made it even more perfect.
I always try to give my couples guidance. Little cues that get them to into a genuine moment. But with Stefanie and Xan…it was like they were professional engagement photo takers. It was like they were doing what I was thinking in my head without me saying it and I think I could have photographed them all day. They are just so sweet together and our time at 31st Street beach made me so so excited for their wedding!!!
Stefanie and Xan…I had SO much fun with you guys. Thanks for not even hesitating when I asked you to chase seagulls and just being so so cute together. I feel so lucky to have met you guys and I can’t wait for your wedding!!!!
