Ventura Engagement Photos
We loveeee Ventura so much and any excuse we can find to come shoot engagement photos there, we’ll take! Jamie + Daniel have an old postcard on their wall of this train bridge in Ventura and it kept popping up in our conversation about shoot locations because they loved it so much. Together, we did a little location sleuthing and we found the exact spot on the postcard for their engagement photo location! We promptly tossed all other ideas out the window and settled on this spot on the beach in Ventura.
Jamie + Daniel brought along their sweet pup Rocco, who totally stole the show and basically had his own little mini photo shoot during our session. He couldn’t stop mugging for the camera and we couldn’t stop taking photos! Bringing a pet to your engagement session is such a fun way to make your photos super personal and sweet. Playing with a pet will help you forget about the camera and relax, too. What’s better than that?!
During our session, we shot near the train tracks and bridge that Jamie + Daniel loved before heading down into a little coastal inlet where we crossed a babbling stream and shot on a sand bar that looked like we had been transported to the desert. These two were super adventurous and had no problem scrambling down rocks, fording the stream, and hopping up on this big ole sandbar. They brought such a fun and playful spirit to our session, capturing candid moments was so easy for us! We can’t wait for their wedding next year at Limoneira Ranch in Santa Paula. It’s going to be such a blast and we hope Rocco makes another appearance in some doggie wedding attire.
