SAN DIEGO ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I couldn’t think of a better way to end our time living in Southern California than this San Diego engagement session at Marian Bear Park. Matthew came home one day telling me Amber and Garrett’s love story. I know the feeling all too well of waiting for someone to come home from deployment so that you can marry them. So of course you best believe I had to take their engagement pictures once Garrett came back.

One thing that stood out immediately about Amber and Garrett was how authentic they were. Of course there is always nerves going into a session but they acted as if I weren’t there. Allowing me the opportunity to take more documentary style images which is what I love most.

Before each engagement session, my couples receive a style guide to help prepare them. Over the past year I have realized it’s not always about a long gown and suit that make the images what they are. I began focusing more on my clients and their interests than making sure my photos had a luxury look to them. I want my couples to feel comfortable in their own skin because really all that needs to be portrayed is their love for each other. Which is exactly what you see when you look at Amber and Garrett’s San Diego engagement session.

Amber & Garrett,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to photograph not just your engagement session but also your big day next year. I truly am blown away with your love for each other. I see it in every image taken within your gallery. I wish you both a beautiful life together and I can’t wait to witness your new adventure as husband and wife.

With Love,

Chels
