San Clemente Pier Engagement Session | Orange County Wedding Photographer

Apr 19, 2018


San Clemente Pier Engagement Session



Catherine + Justin met while getting their Doctorate in Physical Therapy. They were good friends right from the get-go. During this season of life, time with friends almost always involved flashcards and highlighters. There was no sudden moment, no pros and cons list, just an ordinary day they looked up from their anatomy books and realized they were in love.

The San Clemente Pier was such a perfect place to photograph their love. Not only did Justin learn to surf for Catherine, but Justin asked Catherine’s Dad for his blessing when they were all out surfing.

During our engagement session at the San Clemente Pier, they were in their element – loving on one another with sand between their toes.

Congrats you two! Thank you for trusting me with the honor of documenting your love!
