Last Friday evening I had the pleasure of doing an engagement session in La Jolla beach with Kyle and Ariela. Sunset beach sessions are always so beautiful and it is always the perfect setting and background for pictures.
When Kyle was planning this, it was first supposed to be a proposal. He reached out to me the day he got her ring and we had it all planned out: date, time and a perfect spot. They are from out of town and he wanted to propose when they were out here in San Diego. Kyle was going to take her to La Jolla to watch the sunset and propose to her then; Ariela wasn’t even supposed to know I was there until after he’d proposed. Afterwards, we planned to do a quick engagement session.
About a week before this was supposed to happen, his plans changed when she proposed to him with a ring pop. Kyle ended up turning the question back to her with the engagement ring he had waiting for her! Adorable, right!? After getting to know them a little better, I think that was just the cutest and most perfect way for them to get engaged. So, if you ask me, I think it ended up perfect and worked out even better this way. We ended up with a lot more time and were able to do a full engagement session by the beach in La Jolla, where he had originally planned on proposing.
We had so much fun throughout the session and they were both so outgoing and a pleasure to photograph. They are so happy and loving around each other; it was so easy to capture that between them. Kyle and Ariela were also super adventurous and walked straight into the water!! This actually made for some really beautiful photos – I just couldn’t wait to share these with them!
