When this California couple based out of NYC wanted an engagement shoot representative of their West Coast home, I had only one place in mind. We went to a little beach town outside the city. The shoot took place in the early morning to beat the heat and the harsh Summer light. I love that the early morning light here on the East Coast have a similar cast to California’s warm glow. What made this shoot extra sweet, besides the fun couple who was game for anything, was their little pooch who came along for the adventure.
