*Let me just preface this blog posting by saying that I love this couple… Like from the bottom of my heart to the tips of my toes.
From experience I can say that the more the session reflects them as a couple, the better the images will be. Friends and family will connect with the images as well, because they KNOW you and can call out if you really wanted to go for a picnic in an open field with an antique basket, or if you were forced into the idea by a lofty photographer with alternative motives.
I think that when you start to go over ideas with couples, discussing their engagement session, certain perceived ideas start to form… But I never knew it would grow to this…

My heart is so full with love and happiness. In San Clemente in a private garden, two lovely people saw each other for the first time, ready for the rest of their lives together. Completely dedicated to their future paths together, two became one…. I am happy to share a sneak peek from that moment for you today.
Today is an amazing milestone for me- in every way. Supreme Court Rules Gay Marriage Bans Are Unconstitutional!! Tears of joy and happiness are the best way to describe how much love I feel. The fight for same civil rights, and equality for all has been in the forefront of my life. Seeing friends and family not be equal in marriage was heart breaking… but today marks a change that will be a liberty we all can experience. I was moved by this statement from Anthony Kennedy:
“The right of same-sex couples to marry that is part of the liberty promised by the Fourteenth Amendment is derived, too, from that Amendment’s guarantee of the equal protection of the laws. The Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause are connected in a profound way, though they set forth independent principles. Rights implicit in liberty and rights secured by equal protection may rest on different precepts and are not always coextensive, yet in some instances each may be instructive as to the meaning and reach of the other. In any particular case one Clause may be thought to capture the essence of the right in a more accurate and comprehensive way, even as the two Clauses may converge in the identification and definition of the right.”
