I enjoy engagement sessions. A lot. I really enjoy them when a couple goes for a full 4 hour session. That means that we have plenty of time to hang out, change outfits, explore and just have fun.
That’s exactly what Kevin and Jaime did.
We met down in La Jolla, which is beautiful, and had a great day. From walking around and shooting in front of people’s houses, to finding cool little parks, to getting wet and sandy on the beach, this shoot had it all.
Jaime and Kevin are really fun to hang out. When we initially met to talk about their wedding, we got coffee and ended up chatting for a couple hours. I’ve known Kevin for years, and was so excited to hear that he had gotten engaged, and honestly I was surprised that it had taken so long, because he’s such a great guy. As a teacher and a student leader at his church, Kevin definitely has tons of patience. He also has a great sense of humor, and he loves dancing (he’s a catch right?). I once went to Vegas with Kevin and 7 girls (this is a true story) many years ago for one of those girls’ birthday, and Kevin kept on leaving us to go country line dancing or swing dancing, or some form of dancing, just because he loves dancing so much. (He and I might tell this story differently) So I was left with 7 girls in Vegas, it was really rough…
Well if there was a reason for Kevin to remain single for as long as he did, it was because Jaime wasn’t in his life yet. These two are perfect for each other. They are all smiles and laughs and fun times. Jaime is so sweet and a delight to be around. I was really glad to get to know her better at our meeting and on this shoot.
I was so glad that we finally got to do this shoot, because it kept on getting postponed. From accidentally scheduling the shoot on a holiday to Kevin getting sunburnt when Jaime took him on a surprise sailing trip for their third anniversary, it felt as if this shoot was never going to happen.
When I walked in to meet Kevin and Jaime in the lobby of the hotel, we all collectively said “is this really happening?” Well it finally did happen, and I couldn’t be more happy, because I love these pictures, and this couple.
