Marisa & Fabian Engagement Portraits

What a dreamy day. These two made there way up from down south to spend the afternoon with Patrick and I and not going to lie, I was a little giddy like one of my old friends was coming to visit. Marisa and Fabian feel just like old friends of ours. Since the time of booking Marisa and I have been chatting back and forth, had a fun facetime consultation to schedule their engagement session and have bonded over outfit selections and our love of the Minnesota Vikings! (SKOL!)

I was able to schedule Marisa a make up session with the ever so talented Natalie Ozzimo of Bellizzimo Beauty. They are my go to Makeup and Hair Artist on the central coast! So she got all dolled up and we headed out to Montana de Oro for their first engagement session location.

The most amazing thing about the Central Coast is all that it has to offer. SO SO SO many places! Even though I have been to Montana de Oro for Engagement sessions, portrait photography, and even elopements the four of us discovered a new spot for photos! The eucalyptus is now one of our favorite places to check out.

Prompt for the above ^^^ “Okay, now give me that vogue serious face… Channel your inner Tyra Banks” ^^^ I would say they nailed it!

Love the rainbow flare in this one… ^^^

After some fun at Montana de Oro we headed over to location number 2! Each of our wedding packages that include an engagement session include up to 3 locations! So it is super fun to go from place to place and to share the amazing county we live in with our out of town couples! Location number 2 was Bishop’s peak and not going to lie the images from this location are my favorite!

These two’s wedding is in November 2020 at the ever so lovely Spanish Oaks Ranch! Something about this location always ends up being so special to Patrick and I. First off the team at Spanish Oaks is phenomenal. Secondly, our last couple that got married there ended up being some of our closest friends, and I just have a feeling that is what is going to happen with these two.

Now to our final location, and this one was Groom’s Choice! The beach of a 1,000 million stairs that kills my calf muscles every single time. BUT The photos are of course phenomenal!

Oh this sunset! plus look at these to hotties 😉

I seriously love pismo beach engagement sessions! BUT fair warning if you choose me as your photographer you will end up in the freezing ocean! The photos are so worth it though! And I will be freezing right besides you!

Cannot wait for these two’s Spanish Oaks Ranch Wedding! 11/7/2020 here we come!
