Julie and Joaquin live in the Bay area, but have a special connection to the beach and Cayucos, in particular. So while they were staying at On The Beach Bed and Breakfast, I met them for their engagement photos there. Their hopes of photos on the pier (right across from the B&B) didn’t happen because of a major renovation to restore it was still in progress. But we found lots of nice spots under the pier and along the beach.
Perfect autumn day, perfect couple with perfect chemistry! I believe a photographer gets insight when we shoot a couple getting their pictures taken. The ease of being with each other, the spontaneous laughter, the looks shared that a photographer can’t elicit, but only hope to capture as they happen. Ilana and Jake, I believe, have it all – and when I sit here and go through image after image, my belief is totally confirmed. No, life won’t be perfect – but I think they have what it takes to face whatever comes their way with trust, strength, and a bond that won’t be broken.
