Anastacia & Garrison | Windansea Beach Engagement Session

AHHHHH, talk about a DREAM engagement session! When I suggested that Anastacia and Garrison get all dressed up to jump in the ocean, they were all for it! This gorgeous and adventurous couple braved the cold water to make make the most epic engagement session images ever! And it was indeed, quite cold. I love the laughter and shock on their faces when the waves finally reached them!

Garrison and Anastacia are two brilliantly fun and upbeat personalities who are both living the California dream! Garrison is an actor and a model and Anastacia is a dancer. I know, I know... how lucky am I to get to photograph such an incredible couple?!?! Windansea Beach in La Jolla was the perfect setting for this dreamy engagement session. Anastacia wore a gorgeous, flowy dress that caught the breeze beautifully, and Garrison was looking very Prince-Eric-esque is his blue pants and white button-up. Basically, everything was perfect. The weather was beautiful. The sunset was lovely. They were cuddly and cute. And I'm just a really, really, REALLY happy photographer!
