Engagement Session with Dawn and Christian

This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot an engagement session with Dawn and Christian.  They are a hilarious couple!  We spent most of the day laughing and laughing and laughing.  From the time we started planning the engagement session Dawn couldn't figure out where to shoot.  But I kept any any recommendations of "generic" places to shoot because I knew eventually they'd come up with something special.  And I'm so glad they did!

We ended up shooting up the hill on Torrey Pines.  Can you believe that in the 15+ years I've lived in San Diego I've never been up and on those trails!?!  That place let us take some great photos.  Ohh, and the reason it was special is because it is where they had their second date.  I'm gonna say that their first date was more a half date so in my mind this was their first real date.

This is my favorite picture of them!

The first thing I noticed about them when we met was that they matched. Purple shirts AND matching Chuck's. So I had to get a photo of that.

We were able to get some awesome photos of the two of them up at the top of Torrey Pines.

With the sun where it was, we were able to get some awesome silhouettes for some killer black and whites!
