I’m still swooning over Teri and Joe’s engagement session in Solana Beach over the weekend. Teri and Joe are seriously the best couple. We had so much fun at their session! They are that couple who you just love to hang out with. They are constantly laughing with each other and constantly making you laugh with them. Not only that, but did you see these two?! I just have to take a quick second to brag on my couple okay?!
Teri and Joe were dressed absolutely perfect for their session. Teri was stunning in a slate blue dress that matched her eyes perfectly! I send out a Style Guide to all my couples. It’s full of useful information about how to get the most out of our time together, along with outfit ideas that will flatter you best on camera and which colors photograph well. Teri and Joe were so great at involving me in the outfit choosing process and trusting my expertise. I even got a pre-session fashion show through Facebook messenger! It was seriously the highlight of my day! If you know anything about me, you know that there is nothing I love more than photographing a gorgeous dress!
I seriously just love these two! I’ve actually known Joe for years, we worked together at the same company back in the day and he was always one of my favorite co-workers. Not only does he have a great sense of humor, (which should be a job requirement when you’re stuck in an office all day) but he’s crazy talented when it comes to videography. I got to be a hand model once in one of his video productions for work. Ha. I even got to expense my manicure for it. I just remember cracking up the whole time we were filming and joking about how I was going to put on gloves in between takes to protect the merchandise. But enough about me and my brief, non-lucrative, hand modeling career and more about these lovelies!
Joe and Teri had their first date at a San Diego Gulls game! I mean what about grown men fist fighting on ice doesn’t scream romance?! Seriously though I love that this was their first date so much, if you know Teri and Joe at all, this is SO them! Plus, everyone knows hockey is the sport that’s most fun to watch live. So did you see Teri’s engagement ring? No?! Well scroll down and take a peek, I’ll wait…okay so how gorgeous is it?! I know, right?! Joe picked it out all by himself when he surprised Teri by proposing! She had no idea and was completely blown away when he asked. Joe gets so many bonus points for picking out such a gorgeous ring and for keeping the proposal a surprise! I just LOVE hearing proposal stories, makes me all giddy and stuff.
