We excitedly hopped into the car last Saturday and headed down the freeway for Jennifer and Andrew’s San Diego engagement photos. Little did we know we were about to meet such an awesome couple, but also the location where we were about to photograph them was going to be a little, shall we say, interesting!
There is definitely no shortage of amazing coastline as you work your way South towards San Diego, and we met up with Jenn and Andrew where he proposed to her; a great cliff overlooking the water. There was a steep path leading down to a beach and we thought it’d be perfect to have some fun taking photos on this path en route to catching the sunset on what looked like a wide open beach down below us. The path was great, Jenn and Andrew as you’ll see were beyond awesome, and as we reached the bottom and walked out on to the beach we realized something very quickly. Something that made us want to crawl into a hole and die of embarrassment.
PEOPLE WEREN’T WEARING ANY CLOTHES.
I don’t know how else to say it, but terror ran through our veins as we had just led this awesome couple down to one of the only nude beaches in California – seriously?!
Thank heaven there weren’t a ton of free spirits out and about that afternoon, all four of us just laughed, and we proceeded to go as far down the beach as we could! We had a couple “onlookers” walk up to us and photo bomb a few frames…but hey, that’s what Photoshop is made for, right?
Not even these most unique of circumstances could hold us back from having just a fantastic engagement session with these two; their joy and love for one another are contagious and we are so excited for them as they are preparing for a wonderful wedding next year! We had to blog our favorites with them, no if’s ands or butts about it!
