San Clemente State Beach Sunrise Engagement Session | Charlotte & Alex

Charlotte knew exactly what she wanted when she contacted me about hers and Alex’s engagement photos. She and Alex are from Colorado. They’re getting married next year in San Clemente, so she wanted their beach engagement session at San Clemente State beach.

I suggested a sunrise session to avoid crowds and since they had a full weekend planned during their California visit. I was SO excited when they agreed! Sunrise sessions are so beautiful. The lighting is soooo different than “golden hour” and I think they have such a peaceful, magical vibe to them. TOTALLY worth the 5 am wake up call lol.

(Side note: How freaking cute is Charlotte’s white dress?? SO perfect for a beach engagement session! I couldn’t find hers online but here is a link to a similar one!* )

On the day of their session we met up around 6 am. I started their session off with us just chatting about life and getting to know each other. Then once the sun rose enough, we started their session! Oh my goodness these two are some of the most joyful people I know. We had such a fun time together! Charlotte and Alex are one of those couples that you can tell just loves being together, laughing and SMOOCHING!!

Lol I don’t think I ever had to tell them to kiss the whole session. I am so grateful for that I got to meet these two! Michael and I had sore cheeks from smiling so much during our time with them. We walked away feeling like good friends. I wish they lived closer! But hey that’s just an excuse to visit Colorado someday soon 😉
