- About This Post
It can be really hard picking a specific location for an engagement – I mean, what one spot encompasses all that you love as a couple? Are you beach people or more into romping through the forest? Love the busy city streets of San Francisco, or a casual stroll through downtown Los Gatos? So many options, so little time. So it is that this *lovely* couple Laurel and Brian here opted for the variety of natural and man-made beauty that Capitola has to offer. Let’s see, we’ve got murals, railroad tracks, a (tiny) forest, rickety train trestle (not for the aerophobics!), another bridge and a river, cute, colorful buildings, a cool downtown – and oh yeah, a KILLER beach with mellow waves, a picturesque wharf and cliffs. I mean, why would you want to shoot anywhere else?
We took full advantage of all this location has to offer – Laurel was looking amazing in her two outfits, classy in those platforms but still able to deftly navigate the sometimes perilous trails I took them on. Brian is also a handsome dude, easy to smile and clearly head-over-heels for his fiancé. I had a wonderful time coaching them through the process of becoming America’s next top models (ha!). They were super easy to work with, receptive to my directions – and just overall fun to hang out with. Can’t wait for their wedding coming up soon!

- If you don’t think you have what it takes to look like one of the couples on this page – you’re wrong! With a little coaching and a couple shots of tequila (I jest…), you can get results just like all the other “normal” non-model people you see here. I’ve been shooting engaged couples for quite a few years, and I absolutely love it. It’s a challenge that I embrace – and let’s be honest, you two will be way more cooperative than a couple of cranky toddlers – right?
