Recently, I posted an announcement on Instagram offering a free engagement session for a lucky couple in the San Diego area. One of the couples who reached out to me for some engagement photos were two really amazing new friends Andrew and Claire. Andrew and Claire recently got married in New Orleans, LA and very shortly after moved out to San Diego, CA. Andrew had messaged me saying that they never actually got engagement photos and would really like some. My immediate response was “DUH, I’m taking your engagement photos!” Although, I’m pretty sure I replied with a little less sass. Needless to say, I was so stoked! I just met these two through Instagram when a mutual friend tagged my name on one of Andrew’s photos and I have already grown so fond of these new friends and now San Diego neighbors!
When we were talking details about what they were envisioning for engagement photos we landed on beach and urban. Two different styles, but I would have to agree that they both envelope Andrew and Claire perfectly. With their recent move to a So-cal city on the coast and their evident love for big adventures, nothing else would have made more sense. So, we spent an afternoon galavanting La Jolla to capture a beachy and urban vibe for their engagement photos. My favorite part about this that I didn’t find out until halfway through our session was that we were taking photos in the same area where Andrew proposed to Claire exactly one year ago! It was a great afternoon and any time I get with these two is so wonderful.
Here’s to you, Andrew and Claire! Welcome to your new home. I couldn’t be happier to have you here and welcome you into a community that is seriously such a perfect fit for you guys! I’m so excited for you guys to grow in your marriage and see all the adventures to come.
