Orange County Engagement Session | Casa Romantica + Dana Point | Shannon + Thomas

I am OVER. THE. MOON. EXCITED. to share this engagement session with you all today! I am completely blessed to have such amazing couples come my way, Shannon and Thomas are no exception. These two are PERFECT together and we had a great time shooting last month!

Shannon and Thomas met at the University of Colorado, dated for a couple months, and then Shannon actually asked Thomas to be official because he was moving to Washington, DC and did not want to lose him. Thomas ended up "officially making things official" later on that evening and the rest is history! Over the past seven years they have traveled all over and lived in four different cities together. They love to explore, travel, and my favorite, wine taste! 

For their engagement session they knew they wanted a San Clemente location because Thomas proposed there and it's their home. They love history and structure, so we decided on one of Orange County's most beloved wedding venues, Casa Romantica. I am in LOVE with this location and adding Shannon and Thomas in just sweetened the view. We walked around the property and were surrounded by gorgeous light the whole time. Shannon and Thomas also love the beach, so of course, me being up for anything, I was more than excited to check out a new beach in Dana Point. This hidden gem is located behind the Dana Point Marine Institute and it's amazing. There's a cliff that helps diffuse the light and rocks galore make for some amazing texture in photographs. I absolutely cannot wait to go back!

I hope you all enjoy the images because this one is for the books! 

A huge congratulations to Shannon and Thomas - wishing you two the happiest ever after <3
