For Stephanie and Joshua’s engagement session, we decided to head over to the beautiful Sea Cliff Beach. They both are teachers and have the summers off together, so they really wanted to capture that whimsical, free feeling they both have during this time. Stephanie told me they love jokes, the water, and flowers, so we made sure to bring that all into the session.
Like with many couples, I have a few techniques to get them to relax and enjoy the session. I played music, I had them focus on each other by prompting them in ways that were interacting and I made funny suggestions like whisper the name of a fruit in a sexy voice. This was a special engagement session as my florist friend Kat from Kat’s Floral Touch created the bouquet for Stephanie. I always encourage couples to add anything special like a bouquet to their session because it adds an extra intimate element. They also brought a little picnic basket and a letter that he wrote to her. They read it quietly to themselves during the last few moments of the session.
