As a San Diego engagement photographer, I got lucky with these two Navy officers….we had an amazing engagement session!
I work at the Naval Medical Center, so I see officers in uniform everyday. But once you get out of the mindset of expecting to see them, and you see a man in uniform in an unexpected place, it’s striking.
This is Amy and her fiancee John. I work with Amy, and she is also an officer in the Navy. I was lucky enough to be asked to be their engagement photographer a few weeks ago. I think it was brilliant that she was in a dress, and he was in his uniform. I can’t imagine a better looking couple.
I’m working the whole month side by side with Amy, and I get to hear all the details of her engagement and upcoming wedding. My own wedding was 13 years ago, but her enthusiasm brings all those good memories back to the surface.
Unfortunately I never had cute engagement photos like these though! In fact, I think it was on a whim my husband and I posed in my dad’s backyard and he was our official engagement photographer! Oh to go back and do it right! (sorry dad)
And to have your man in uniform!!
(To my sister, Megan…I know you’re as jealous as I am!)
After they did the formal uniform shots, we moved to the beach on Coronado and got casual.
Congratulations to this fabulous couple! May you have many, many happy years together!
(and hurry up and get to work….let’s do some maternity photos in 2014!!….ok, ok, just kidding. 2015 is ok…..)
