Peaceful Oceanside Engagement Shoot Thursday, June 13, 2013 ~ 12:45 p.m.

Hey guys! Happy day-before-my-birthday! ;) I'm taking tomorrow off, so I felt the need to mention it! I'll turn 27 tomorrow, although with this baby of mine, I'm feeling much older these days!

If you're ever stumped on where to take your engagement photos, always go for the beach. It works everytime, and today's engagement shoot is a perfect example! Today, I am happy to be sharing yet another fabulous engagement shoot by San Diego's Studio Sequoia. This session took place on the beautiful beaches and ocean cliffs of San Diego, right beside the railroad tracks. This engagement shoot was a longtime coming, and a sweet birthday surprise from Tony to Megan over the holidays. Tony and Megan first met while attending college in Indiana, and were engaged for nine whole months before getting their engagement photos done. After Tony graduated from college, he was quickly deployed by the US Navy, while Megan finished up her last semester of school. But during Megan's Christmas break, the couple made the long road trip out to California, where Tony had a birthday surprise waiting for Megan...engagement photos! An entire vintage 1950's living room was set up on the ocean cliff right next to the train tracks, and then they headed down to the beach for some quiet and intimate moments together as the sun went down.

"What really touches us again and again is the huge sacrifice soldiers and their loved ones make each day," said their photographer, Kelley. "He would be deployed a few weeks after their engagement session, and likely would not return for a year, so they have plans to get married whenever he gets back."

Beautiful photography - I love that they had the perfect light and the beach and got that train shot at the end! Adds an edge to an otherwise serene setting!
