This was such a fun session to photograph! Katie & Ben told photographer Michael that they wanted to do something different for their engagement session and since Katie grew up in California she wanted to include the beach! Michael showed them a few engagement sessions he had done before, but one, in particular, stood out – a picnic that our previous couple, Amanda & Brian did a few years back! They loved the idea of a picnic and wanted to have a little date night watching the sunset while eating a (mostly) keto-friendly meal. :)
We met at Pass-a-Grille beach, on the west coast, because it offers us such a wide range of backdrops and it’s not too crowded, so we took advantage of every inch we could! We started the session near the rock formations to get this cool backdrop of the water and rocks! Katie & Ben told Michael that they love a lot of the photojournalistic style of photography, so he had them walk along the beach and capture their natural movements, which they nailed because they were naturals in front of the camera! The couple then changed and grabbed their basket full of food and drinks to watch the sunset as Michael captured candids. Once the sunset was almost over the couple changed again and headed into the water for a few more candid moments before ending the session with a double exposure of the clouds and the couple!
