Alesia + Garrett | Crystal Cove Engagement Session
Alesia & Garrett were so much fun to photograph! For their engagement session we decided on Crystal Cove State Park to really get the diversity of the scenic there, the rocky areas and long stretches of sand plus those gorgeous ocean view cliffs you can’t beat. We strolled the beach , they giggled and hugged along the shore line and explored the rocky areas for some even cooler shots. When we headed back up the beach we decided to throw down a blanket to enjoy the sunset. These two requested to incorporate their fav drinks in their session to add a little bit of personal sentiment, so they had a refreshing few sips while enjoying the sun making its way down the horizon. I love when my clients come out of their shells, and these two did just that with their playful piggy back rides and beach wandering. I try as much as possible to get clients to a relaxed state so they can just have fun and be themselves, because thats when we are able to really capture the raw emotion and connection, the realness between two people in love. For this session we wanted to go for a more soft romantic vibe so we looked for a long flowy blush pink dress for Alesia to wear and thought a pop of color in Garrett's pants would add some character & contrast too so went for a forest green tone. I usually cling to lighter tones for my sessions but for this one we went toward the deeper & richer tones being near the rocks and romantic cliffs. It was a great day for an engagement session , we got some killer sunset colors in the sky!
Congrats Alesia+Garrett! Cant wait till your wedding!
