La Jolla Engagement

Sarah + Matt's Rainy Day Torrey Pines Gliderport and Scripps Pier Engagement Session

Sarah and Matt's Torrey Pines Gliderport and Scripps Pier Engagement Session 2018-1.jpg

It was Rainy and foggy when I left my house in Cardiff yesterday and I was a little concerned. I've done weddings and engagements in the rain but I usually have some cover to count on. That was not the case yesterday. But I drove the coast with confidence in my skills and feeling lots of cool kid vibes in my dads vintage Mercedes (Thanks Dad!). I just knew in my bones it was all going to work out. Sarah and Matt showed up and were ready for adventure and man was it a good one yesterday.

I drove down the 101 out of Del Mar and was welcomed to La Jolla with high clouds, snippets of blue, and light breezy and my excitement grew. We got up to the Glider port and it was perfect! Matt and Sarah, were warm and ready to listen to all my ideas. And they did an amazing job, just being themselves. And I shouldn't have been surprised, these two have a love story of full of adventure and the open sea (they met and started dating by working on the same sail boat traveling through the Caribbean for a month). And they both have the same flexible and carefree vibe that worked so well for dealing with less than ideal weather.

Sure we got grey skies, and little rain, but that never stopped their excitement at being there, or their genuine love for each other. These two are getting married at The Pearl, later this year, and Sarah and I wanted to show that vintage vibe through their throw back clothes and my dad's sick car. Even when we moved down to the beach, they continued the fun by running down the beach in the rain and snuggling on the blanket under my cute bright yellow umbrella. 

I hope you both love these sneak peaks and I can't wait to share more and for your big day!
