Tiia + Justin (Engagement Photography) @ Nisene Marks Forest, Aptos

Tiia and Justin are a really sweet couple, if not a little shy on the outset. I think they felt comfortable with me, though, and let some of their true personality shine through. I know it’s not easy when a complete stranger tells you how to touch your fiance, where this hand and that arm should go, and – oh, don’t forget to “act natural” (ha!); so when I can do all that and still get some keepers I always consider it a personal victory. This was the second engagement session I had at Nisene within a couple weeks, so I had to force myself to try to explore off the beaten path (literally and figuratively) to keep it fresh – if for no one else but for me. I think that’s important with any routine – no matter how familiar you are with a location or a person, you need to shake things up to keep those creative juices from drying out. Here are a few of my favorite engagement photos from Tiia and Justin’s e-session @ Nisene Marks in Aptos, California – feel free to browse the whole gallery at www.GoodEyePhotography.com.

    Tiia Kienitz Antrim - We definitely had fun working with you even though we are both naturally a bit shy and camera shy. I've been telling everyone that you made it easy and that it will be so much fun at the wedding. Love the sense of humor that helps ease the awkwardness!
