Have I mentioned before that I love when a couple picks out the location for a shoot?
Sarah and Alex chose Kate Sessions Park for their engagement session. The park is so incredible, it doesn't really need a reason to shoot there. Although, they did choose that park because it's close to where they live and because of the views - the reason why they fell in love with San Diego to begin with. This spot was special to them, and I love that so much. I will always always always prefer to shoot anywhere that has meaning to the couple.
We walked around the park chatting about mostly exercise and nutrition, and if you know them, well - you know why. They have a shared passion for health and fitness and I could tell how much they loved it by the way they loved sharing knowledge with me. Luckily for me, it wasn't just an engagement session - it ended up doubling as a let-me-ask-you-all-the-health-questions session. Whether or not they got tired of answering my questions, I'll never know, because these two hearts of gold answered every one of them with so much knowledge and enthusiasm.
What an incredible afternoon having this opportunity to get to know these two better before the big day, take in these views, and get a crash course in nutrition and exercise. Also, isn't Sarah such a STUNNER? The whole session I kept trying to figure out who her famous celebrity doppelgänger is. I think I may have an idea on who it is - any guesses!?
Oh man, Sarah and Alex... you are so fun and playful and full of life. Everything you two do together is bound to be the best time. I can't wait to shoot your wedding next month!
