Jessica & Brandon’s Laguna Beach engagement session is going down in MFD Photo history for the most rescheduled session! The first three times we had to reschedule it was out of our control. California has been getting SO much rain that is caused us to have to reschedule several times. The fourth time we had scheduled our session for Jess came down with the flu! We almost had to reschedule to my plane being delayed when we were coming back from shooting a wedding on the east coast this past weekend. It was a crazy series of events but I’m so glad we finally got together for their session! Believe it or not it was actually suppose to rain on this day as well. We got lucky and there was just clouds rolling in and out of our session.
We started our session at the gelato shop where they had their first date and ended it at the beach that Brandon proposed at. I love when sessions have special locations! It adds a special element to their photos. Jessica and Brandon are also getting married on the beach later this year so the whole session really just fit them so well.
When Jessica first reached out to me to possibly photograph her wedding I had a strong feeling that I knew her from somewhere. So we stood their trying to figure out where it was that I knew her from. Eventually, I asked what school she went to and it turns out we were both undergrad students at Vanguard University at the same time! I knew she looked super familiar. We already had so much in common before we even had made the whole thing official. It makes me so stinking excited to photograph their sweet beach wedding later this year!
Brandon and Jessica, thank you so much for being patient and being the best sports about having to reschedule our session SO many times! I can’t wait to do it all over again on your wedding day. It’s going be epic!
