During Taylor & Chase’s engagement session at Montana De Oro, I was smiling the entire time. Los Osos, California is a cozy California beach town with one of the most stunning National Parks. I am blessed with the most amazing couples. Why are my couples so great? They are madly in love, support their partner, know how to make the most of things, and have a great laugh along the way.

Although it was an overcast evening, we savored every drop of light we had. We ventured to a couple of spots in this Los Osos National Park, including Spooner’s Cove. This spot is extra special to them. Not only did they tell each other that they loved each other here, Chase proposed here in October of 2020. Enjoy some of our fun below. You have to check out her ring too!! So stunning!

A Couple of Tips for An Enjoyable Engagement Session

  • THE TIMELINE: I am always a few minutes early to engagement sessions so that we can scope out the location and finding the light that will be flattering on our couples! Because we are racing the sun and cannot shoot after it has set, we recommend leaving 15-30 minutes earlier than you originally planned just to be safe!
  • HAVE A PREVIEW PARTY: In the past, we have found that it is incredibly helpful for our brides to sit down and have a little preview party with their groom before their engagement session. Take ten minutes and sit down together to scroll through 2-3 of your favorite engagement sessions on my blog. This will allow your groom to be prepared for what he is about to experience!
  • TAKE A DEEP BREATH! : You’re going to be amazing models! We always tell our couples that the BEST models are the ones who have never modeled professionally before! And we mean it! The couples who are usually most nervous are the couples who totally rock their session! So be encouraged! We have worked with EVERY personality type and EVERY body type, and we always create images that our clients love!! Get excited!
