These last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind of photoshoots, editing, job interviews, and a whole lotta fun!  I've got a few things to share with you, but first up is this weekend's photoshoot with Brittney and Jeremy- winners of my engagement shoot giveaway!  I had so much fun getting to know these two as we hung out in the Dana Point Harbor. turns out Brittney and I are sort of related!  She is my dad's step-sister's cousin!  Ha! 

Brittney and Jeremy are funny, kind and genuine people and a deep relationship between them is evident in person, and in photos.  They've been together over 5 years... high school sweethearts... and their interactions with each other reflect a knowingness.  A comfortable, soul mate-y vibe. 

You two are wonderful!  I am so honored to have been able to spend the afternoon with you and if these photos capture just a tiny glimpse of your relationship I'll consider it a job well done...

I always suspected I was funny and now I have proof.  Bam!

We visited the bench where Jeremy first asked Brittney to be his girlfriend and later proposed.

I was changing my camera settings when I looked up and saw them sitting together like this watching the sunset.  I thought it was really sweet and I can envision them doing this exact same thing 50 years from now... maybe even on the same beach.
