ASHLEY + SAM // ENGAGEMENT SESSION

May 23, 2017

I feel so honored to have been able to capture Ashley + Sam's love for one another. These two are so in love, I could feel their passion from behind the lens.

It was a rainy day in Southern California. I texted Ashley to see if she was still good with our scheduled session because of the weather. I was so excited when she responded, 'yes'! We had planned to meet at a Laguna Canyon Hiking Trail that I've been wanting to check out. I arrived early to scope out potential spots. When I got there, I read a sign that said the gates closed at 5pm! Thank goodness Ashley + Sam arrived earlier than our scheduled time because we were able to have a few minutes to take some photos. It sprinkled for a few minutes during the session but then the weather cleared up so beautifully. We were about to head further on the trail when a park ranger drove up and told us she was locking the gates. We ran to our second location in Laguna Beach. We wrapped up our afternoon on the gorgeous sand with the sun shining and a gentle breeze blowing. Ashley's giggly nature helped calm Sam's nerves throughout the session. By the end, they were so relaxed and playful with one another. It was so adorable to watch them blossom in front of the camera.

Ashley + Sam, thank you for letting me capture some beautiful memories for you!
