Natasha & Steve   ♥   San Diego, USA

Photographer:   Justice Phototography

 

Today’s long distance love story is an incredible ‘chance of fate’ fairytale! Having met at University in Ohio whilst Natasha enjoyed a semester there from her own UK Uni, this cute couple were initially just friends and after that one term they didn’t see each other again for years.

 

A chance meeting brought them together after 13 years apart and as soon as they met up again there was no doubt in their minds that they were meant to be together. By this time in their lives they were living on other sides of the globe from each other but undeterred they kept their love alive over the long distance that stood between them.

 

Steve proposed and of course Natatsha said “Yes!” and so they enjoyed a whirlwind wedding along with this engagement shoot session by the beach in sunny San Diego – one of their favourite places in the world – before starting a new life together in the US.

Rachael & James   ♥   Ohio, USA

Photographer:   Kayla Coleman Photography

 

When a fashionable designer gets engaged you can guarantee she will have one chic engagement shoot. Team this style savvy bride-to-be and her dapper groom-to-be with an oh-so-brilliant photographer and the results are dreamy romantic photographs, abounding with personality.

 

Rachael, the founder of design boutique Shore Society and her hubby-to-be James, got engaged on the bleached white sands of the Key West, Florida. Once home and still reeling from their romantic proposal trip, they recreated the feeling of those fabulous vacation moments at their local beach. By photographing at their house (with their super-cute pooch!) and on their well-loved bikes too, their personalities and home life shone through, as well as their obvious adoration for each other.

Kayla Coleman Photography:

“Often there are couples that photographers want to call ‘DIBS!’ on. When I saw Jim and Rachael’s engagement announcement on Facebook, I jumped at my chance to get them in front of my camera!”

Meghan & Mike   ♥   Los Angeles, USA

Photographer:   Ryan and Heidi Studio

 

Not only is Manhattan Beach one of my all-time favourite places in the world but these romantic, impactful, atmospheric and beautifully shot engagement images from Ryan and Heidi Studio stole my heart immediately. They perfectly capture the soul of these sweethearts and the breathtaking beach cities of LA that they call home (not jealous at all!).

 

If you’re from out-of-town and visiting Los Angeles anytime soon, be sure to drop by Manhattan Beach – it’s laid-back Cali cool at its best. Making up just over 2 miles of the 20 mile stretch of The Strand (the LA beach boardwalk that connects Torrance Beach with Santa Monica), Manhattan Beach is a renowned spot for surfing and volleyball.  Trendy restaurants famous for their taste (Manhattan Beach Post to name just one),  relaxed hipster bars, the stylish Shade Hotel and street upon street of hillside homes make up this desirable neighbourhood.

Engagement Shoot – Beachside Bliss In Costa Rica

Ashley & Alex   ♥   Liberia, Costa Rica

Photographer:   Ella Photography

 

What better way to start the week than with a bright, sunshiny day in Costa Rica? With some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the Costa Rica coastline made a breathtaking setting for today’s engagement shoot.

 

Half way through planning a big bash at home, Ashely and Alex had a change of heart and decided that a destination wedding day was the way forward. They jetted away to Costa Rica with 20 of their family and friends to tie the knot and whilst they were there, their oh-so-talented photographer Ella Photography took them on a tour to take these wonderful engagement pictures.

 

Whilst taking the photographs, a little pooch befriended the couple and subsequently followed them throughout the whole shoot, making his photographic debut in most of the pictures! This was especially cute as their own pup had played a role in Alex’s proposal to Ashley back home. Here’s Ashley to tell you more about the actual proposal…

Ashley says:

“Alex proposed on his birthday. We were both in the middle of exams – Alex was in law school and I was in grad school – and for some reason he was adamant that we go to the dog park that morning. It was beautiful out and I was feeling cabin-fever-ish, plus he never outright asks for anything, so I was more than willing.”
