Encinitas Engagement Session | Cassandra + Ryan

Photographing in California with a very sweet couple always makes taking photos more fun. I mean how many places offer you 70 degree days the weekend before Thanksgiving?! This session was extra special for me because I’ve known Cassie since she was five. She is the younger sister of one of my very good ballet friends, and I still have memories of her bouncing around the house as we “big girls” put on crazy ballet productions, fashion shows and the like. Now she is all grown up and getting married!!

It was a beautiful day for exploring all the nooks and crannies of this private garden. I’m not sure what this purple flower is, but I love it!!


After a quick outfit change and relocation we stumbled upon this small clearing at the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course. I wasn’t sure what the lighting would be like at high noon, but I was pleasantly surprised!



Cassie and Ryan: Thank you for being so wonderful to work with! I’m bummed that I won’t be able to be there for the wedding, but I’m so glad we had this opportunity to hang out.   I’m so excited for you both and for you to begin your married life together in just a little over a month!

Un abrazo fuerte,
