“This just keeps getting better.” That was the phrase I kept repeating to myself over and over again while capturing Gloria and Rick’s Avalon Engagement Photos. Gloria and I had considered a few different locations for their engagement shoot and eventually settled on shooting at the same place where Rick proposed to Gloria a few months back. Beach shoots sometimes take a little planning and a little luck. If you pick the wrong location, the wrong time of day, and the weather isn’t working in your favor, you can be stuck with a thin strip of beach, and little else to work with to add interest to the photos. The exact spot where Rick proposed was on the bay side of the town but to our surprise the entire area was under construction. Fortunately for us, not only were we able to find multiple spots that each felt a bit different from the typical beach location, we were also blessed with a perfect 60 degree fall day, a beautiful sky and setting sunlight. But perhaps the best thing, and I can’t stress this enough, was Gloria and Rick’s personalities. They were fun and uninhibited while taking these photos, and it made this one such a fun shoot.
Congratulations on your engagement Rick and Gloria and enjoy the images!
