I had an amazing time with Karyna and Joe this past Friday in Santa Cruz when we met up for their engagement session. We are super excited to document their wedding because these two are very cute together and they are getting married in a fabulous destination, Isle Mujeres, Mexico. They both love the beach but had never been to one of my favorite beaches in Santa Cruz so we met at Natural Bridges State Beach on the west side of Santa Cruz. When I was in college I would come to Natural Bridges and read because it is so beautiful. What really makes it special are the rocks on the side of the beach and outcropping rock in the ocean. It is like a natural arch and perfect for framing portraits in front of it.
I have a lot of favorite images from this engagement shoot in Santa Cruz so I posted a ton below. We are so very excited to be shooting our first wedding in Mexico in May and spending a couple days with these two. Stay tuned for that blog post because it will be for sure amazing!
