Palos Verdes Engagement Session – John & Meagan
I’m always so in love with hearing the stories of how they met. Every couple and every story is so unique and different and I never ever get tired of hearing them. I had photographed the wedding of Andrew & Rita back in 2015 where John was one of Andrew’s groomsmen and Meagan was one of Rita’s bridesmaids. During the time when both sides of the bridal party got together, that’s when John and Meagan met each other. They knew pretty quickly that there was a connection and started dating shortly after the wedding! How cute is that?! You’re in a wedding to celebrate the love of one of your best friends and also end up meeting your soulmate! I think that was pretty much written in the stars!
John is in the military and was stationed in Hawaii and Meagan worked with Sea Lions here in Southern California. Obviously long distance relationships are hard but they knew how much they cared for one another so they of course made it work. She said YES! when he asked her to marry him and the rest is history!
We did their engagement session in Palos Verdes on the beach below the Trump National Golf Course. It’s such a pretty area and was the perfect place for these two to share a romantic yet very fun and silly evening with each other while I photographed all the adorable shenanigans between the two of them. They are seriously so fun to be around and they have such a love for life and love for each other. John will do anything to make Meagan laugh which was very apparent during his “fake trip” while we did some walking photos. He totally fooled us but it made Meagan bust up laughing which was exactly his goal. I can’t wait to photograph their beautiful Palos Verdes Wedding in June!
