I love love love these beach engagement photos! Jenny and Brennan are SO sweet and fun and we just had such a good time wandering around on the cliffs, chatting about things that make us happy, and laughing a lot. Just a very relaxed, very fun session in one of my favorite places on the planet. (We didn’t see dolphins this time, but I often see dolphins at this location! I grew up in Half Moon Bay and know the area well; it’s not uncommon to see them dancing, jumping, swimming, and playing off the coast in the waves here. It’s always magical!)
It honestly does not get better than this incredible location: The ocean, the beach, and the cliffs come together in such a spectacular way. It is truly California showing off, no doubt about it. It was also beautiful and interesting/more unusual: We had thick clouds AND light, bright, and beautiful sunshine. You’ll see this reflected in the lovely grey and sunny images that we created together. I love them!
I loved their outfit changes: Something more minimal (and that linen white dress is insanely gorgeous) and then also something more bright and fun, with lots of movement. It was the perfect combination for a wide variety of photos and lots of prettiness in the different locations.

Seriously so glad I got a chance to spend some time with these two and absolutely cannot wait for their wedding this summer. This day was perfect for beach engagement photos and that day will be perfect, too.
