Ryan is my cousin, though I love him more like a brother, and Emily is his beautiful bride to be and best friend and already considered part of the family so I know we all are so excited that it will finally be official.
This is the engagement session that wasn't. Ryan and Emily were visiting San Diego and certainly were not planning having their pictures taken, (Emily almost vetoed the whole thing!) but Ryan's mom insisted. And of course I wasn't going to refuse the opportunity to shoot these two; I mean look at them, they're gorgeous!
Anyway, it all worked out and we kept it low key, with only two locations. It was definitely a challenge for me to try and find ways to keep the pictures interesting with so few location changes, but a welcomed challenge at that. Plus, once we got to the second location with that gorgeous light through the trees, I didn't really want to leave anyway.
Thanks for letting me photograph you two! Can't wait for your wedding in September.
