Tara and Matt: Engaged

For the past 5 days, Airika and I have been down in Southern California soaking in the beautiful sunshine, hanging with friends, shooting a wedding, and speaking at a photographer meeting down in San Diego. I've been wanting to post some of these engagement photos from Tara and Matt's engagement session, but it always seems to take longer to get things done when you're on the road!

Before our session started, we met up for Happy Hour at Ivars Salmon House. It's always nice to be able to sit down to good food and conversation as friends before a shoot. It really helps set the tone for the day and helps us achieve the natural imagery that we love to create!

I love this photo of Tara--it shows her true personality-full of life and joy.

After we finished up the shoot, we were walking back to the car to head our separate ways, when I noticed that this tree had Tara and Matt's initials carved into it! We love finding unexpected opportunities like this, so of course, we took advantage of it!

We're looking forward to Tara & Matt's wedding at Rock Creek Gardens this fall. It will be a large celebration with about 400 guests (24 in the wedding party), so I'm sure that there will be no shortage of amazing photo opportunities!

I love the photo of the couple walking down the switchback path at Gasworks (I think)...easy to have many meanings (path of life and such)...I love it!
