Taking it back a couple of weeks before all of this rain, I made my way down to Santa Cruz. James and Dallhana are two of the sweetest people individually and together they are literally the ultimate couple.
.They're tying the knot this June in Fresno, which is where they actually met while attending the same college. James is originally from the Yuba City area. So he and Dallhana have made many a weekend trips up north and so Santa Cruz is a special place to them.
This is the place where James first made the move to make Dallhana his girlfriend and it's also the place where he popped the official question of "will you marry me?" So it made total sense that when I asked these two where they wanted to do their engagement session, they didn't hesitate to announce it would be a beach in Santa Cruz.
I ended up picking the Natural Bridges State Beach because I thought it was beautiful and would make the perfect place for sunset photos. It was an extremely busy Sunday and the beach was swarming with people, including at least 15 other photographers and other engaged couples. We made it work though and you would never know any different from the photos.
I have too many favorites from the day but here are a few more. Can't wait until these two say their vows later this year. I have no idea where they'll be honeymooning but I bet it'll be somewhere with a sandy beach.
