Alex + Raj’s Dana Point Harbor engagement photos are beachy, fun, and the perfect representation of their relationship!
As two people with many shared interests, Alex and Raj knew they wanted to find locations for their photos that felt really special. In fact, they actually went out and set up picnic dates at multiple photo-worthy spots to make sure the places we chose were perfect! In my mind, they totally knocked this out of the park, and I’m so excited to share these pictures with the world.
Alex and Raj both work in the space industry, . They met through mutual friends at a space event at a brewery in Florida where they now live together. After two and half years together, they mutually decided to get engaged this year! Together, they designed the ring to be full of symbolism about their relationship. Raj had the idea to add blue sidetones to match the color of Alex’s eyes. I’m sorry, how incredibly sweet can they be?!
During their engagement photos, these two surprised me by wearing traditional clothes to honor Raj’s culture and family for a handful of shots at the beginning! The beautiful colors meshed perfectly with the striking arches for the backdrop in Dana Point.
“WOW! Erin checks all the boxes we were looking for in a photographer: professional, communicative, and an artistic genius! From our very first inquiry, she was a joy to work with. She always responded promptly with super-clear answers to our questions. But most importantly, she really cared about making our photoshoot experience fun, memorable, and comfortable! I especially appreciated how she cultivated an environment where we never ever felt awkward in front of the camera, even helping re-pose us when we were at weird angles. Thanks to Erin’s expert direction, we felt totally at ease and were able to be our silly selves throughout the evening. She returned our album of beautifully edited photos back to us very quickly, and we love them so much we’ve decided to print and hang some at home! Thanks Erin for all your hard work and making our day so special :)”
