Lexie + Jake; A Romantic, Autumn Engagement session in San Diego, California
Lexie and Jake got married in an intimate civil ceremony a couple years ago, and, after enduring a long military deployment and then emotional homecoming this past May, they are eager to plan their big wedding party and were so excited for their engagement session with me! I brought along my talented friend Olguta Goddard, who will be second shooting their wedding day as well, and the four of us explored together.
What amazed me was not only how gorgeous autumn is in North County San Diego, but also the ease with which these two fell into their intimacy. Every couple tells me they are "awkward" in front of the camera, and trust me, I know it is no easy place to be (why do you think I prefer to hide behind it? haha), and these two were no exception. But I just told them not to worry about posing for me - just to focus on each other. To wrap their hands around each other and wrap themselves up in their love. So once we got started, these two were not awkward in the slightest! Quite the opposite, actually - so natural around each other and so comfortable with each other's bodies! (I even said to Olguta at one point - geeze, we need to start shooting engagement sessions with already-married couples more often - they are so wonderfully relaxed!)
Standing there with Lexie + Jake I could really feel the way they longed for each other; the magnetism with which their lips drew closer, the ease of Lexie's laugh as Jake buried his face in her neck, the enduring power of their union. And I could not be more excited - both for them and for myself - because the love they have for each other really came through in these images, and because I cannot wait to capture more of their magic on their wedding day!

Obsessed. Not only are these images gorgeous but this place highlights their love so perfectly. Beautiful job, Marie, every single one of these is worth framing!
