An already rockin’ engagement session turned epic when it came time for sunset. Hands down, THE most amazing sunset I’ve ever seen. As I was shooting the beginning of the sunset, Rick said, “Just wait. It’s going to get better.” I couldn’t image it getting better. But it did! Rick must have said that three times through the course of this sunset. After the sun went down, the sky lit up (photo above), and the colors just started spreading farther and farther across the sky. Jaime and Jared, what a way to celebrate your engagement! I’d say your future looks extremely bright!Under the Scripps Pier.Every time Jaime kisses Jared, she goes up on her toes. So cute!These two have got great chemistry! Just look at their eyes.Jaime is rocking the red nail polish…and that amazing ring!Sweet moment at Scripps Seaside Forum.Rick got this killer silhouette with their reflection on the glass.At the Torrey Pines Gliderport.I was already freaking out at the light here…and then it got even better.The sky is on fire!The obligatory jumping shot. Can you tell these two are athletes?The evening ended with a little visit to their romantic wedding venue, the Estancia in La Jolla.
Rick and I were so excited when we got the news that these two were engaged. Meghan is a dear college friend of ten years, and we first met Patrick at our own wedding seven years ago. We knew after seeing Meghan and Patrick together that this was the real deal. They are such wonderful people individually and it only gets more wonderful when you put them together. What an honor it was to photograph their wedding. Not only was is incredible to experience the days emotions through the camera…we were so thrilled to get to shoot in such a beautiful place! Arlington is just a few miles outside of Boston, and Fall colors were in full effect. The lighting was perfect. The people were so lovely. What an amazing day!The DressPatrick getting ready in their home.This woman is so beautiful! Going over his vows…The dress is just stunning on her.The guys.
