Nicole + Brandon | Laguna Couples Session
It was such an honour to photograph Nikki + Brandon! Nicole is SUCH A FREAKING TALENTED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER herself so I was a little nervous at first. But we ended up hitting it off right away. We connected on the Dirty Boots and Messy Hair fb page for photographers. I was looking for couples to model for me while I was in California and Nikki volunteered. This shoot was literally my dream come true. Laguna Beach. The most epic golden hour of my life. Couples session on the beach. Walking barefoot, camera in hand back to my car. Driving back up the PCH to LA with a smile on my face, windows down, music turn way up. Dreams do come true.
I drove down earlier in the day to beat the traffic and sat on the beach (for a lot of hours) reading Francine Rivers, waiting until our session that evening. I got such a good tan!! The surf was insane. Golden hour was epic. Laguna is one of my absolute favourite places and I haven’t even scratched the surface of what it has to offer. I’ll be back.
One of my favourite things about this couple is how comfortable they are in front of the camera they are! They were so down for anything I suggested. Made suggestions of their own for poses. They even got chased by the tide coming in and got their pant legs drenched. They completely nailed this. Take a look for yourself!
