We spent a dreamy winter evening roaming the coastline and breathing in the warm sunshine at Shannon and Aidans Carlsbad beach engagement session. Before coming to the beach, we stopped at the Carlsbad Lagoon for a few portraits! It made for a beautiful start to their engagement session! We ended along the breathtaking cliffs to catch the golden haze San Diego sunsets are known for. I’m forever in awe of the california coastline and the calm it brings to sessions. And the beauty it brings to photos. Just look at the textures. From the ocean waves, to the rocky cliffside.

We squeezed in their engagement photos right before the holidays and it was the SWEETEST and most peaceful evening in carlsbad. It was nothing short of joy as we soaked in the beautiful sunset, honestly just a reflection of their joy and warmth they carry as people 💛

So honored to be invited into their love season + can’t wait for their wedding in April at Ethereal Gardens!
