A Sunset Cliffs Engagement Session, Ocean Beach
You don't expect bad weather to be the recipe for the perfect photoshoot, but last Sunday, San Diego got its first taste of rain in a while, and the remnants of the rain clouds provided picture perfect conditions for our engagement session with Chris and Vanessa.
When we met Chris and Vanessa at Sunset Cliffs, the light was perfect! The clouds and the reflection from the ocean made for gorgeous, soft photos that a photographer dreams of. We began our shoot, and got to know Chris and Vanessa, and quickly saw how in love they are, and how awesomely cool they are as well!
As we finished up our shots on the cliffs, we were ready to head down to rope beach to catch the last remnants of golden hour. On our walk over, we saw emergency vessels and vehicles rushing in around the beach that we were heading to. A cliff rescue of a surfer was happening before our eyes, in the exact spot we needed to head down to the beach! Thankfully, we later learned the surfer was okay and was able to walk home after the accident, but it was quite the scene! The session was far from dull to say the least.
We loved getting to know and photograph Chris and Vanessa, and will always remember the time our photoshoot was put on hold while someone had to be rescued from the cliffs.
Here are some of our favorite shots from the day!
