I joined Lauren and Macaulay for one of their typical date nights (just a bit more dressed up) at Laguna Niguel Regional Park for their engagement session. I love photographing couples in a location that holds a special place in their hearts. I honestly love to shoot at new places, as much as I can. There is nothing quite like exploring a new location for the first time and discovering how the light pours through clouds and trees. I also primarily love photographing couples in places that are familiar to them – like in their home or their go-to date night spot – because I feel like all those warm and fuzzy feelings are elevated. Also, they got to dance together under the moon. A perfect ending to such a precious evening.

Ah, I just love these two, you guys! A few weeks after this session we went out for tacos on a double date (anyone who knows me knows that tacos are the way to my heart), and we had the best time. Nathan and I can’t to photograph their wedding day next spring!
