Kimber and Nate are implants from Utah and wanted their photos to reflect their current new home here in the bay area. Both are clearly very active people so my thoughts were to take them somewhere very outdoorsy. We began the photoshoot by venturing through a ranch in Santa Cruz, where the lighting was absolutely gorgeous! I always encourage an engagement session with my couples whenever it’s’ possible. It’s s a great time for my couples to get comfortable with having a huge camera lens pointing at them and to see how I work. For me, I get to learn more about my couples prior to their wedding day. As the sun started to sink into the horizon, we moved towards the beach and shot until it was practically dark. I had fun guiding them through different poses and I thank them both for trusting me throughout the photoshoot.
