Johnny lives in Chicago and contacted me for a top secret engagement beach shoot, while visiting San Diego, where he would propose to Natalie at Coronado Shores (her most favorite place in the world). I was really looking forward to the secret mission but as it turns out, Johnny popped the question much sooner and Natalie of course said yes. We weren't able to go forward with a super secretive/undercover photo shoot (I eventually got over it) but we still were able to meet up and get some engagement images going.
Johnny and Natalie made this session so simple because it was obvious that they were made for one another. They even had the great idea of writing down the date of their wedding on balloons to pose with in the photos, genius. Unfortunately, one of the balloons escaped but they had one extra balloon, which was even more genius! With that extra balloon and a quick sprint to the Hotel del Coronado to borrow a sharpie, Johnny was able to save the day. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had taking them for this great couple.
