Rosi + Daniel: An Engagement Session

elmatadorengagement

By fate, Rosi and Daniel met in 2011.  By choice, the two became close friends.  Beyond their control, the two fell madly, deeply in love.  Their love story is simple, but it's the kind of story that any hopeful romantic dreams of. 

Rosi and Daniel plan to wed in the stunning beach-front Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara, California, so to maintain the beach-ocean theme we took their engagement session to El Matador beach.  I couldn't be more honored documenting a new part of their story at this breath-taking location.

Rosi is a freelance fashion photographer and Daniel is a film composer so the two made my job SO easy to do!  They were natural in front of the camera and at times I felt like they forgot I was there at all.

I'm sure there is never a dull moment between these two.

The golden hour is the best hour.  I loved how the rays were bursting through this little opening of the rock.
