Grover Beach Engagement Session : Ashley & Saul

Grover beach is the perfect scenario for engagement pictures, it was the Monarch Butterfly Grove which by the way we saw a few of them :) it also has sand dunes, beautiful oak trees, the beach and wonderful warm light.

Ashley and Saul meet 4 years ago at the Chumash casino, he was a cook and she was a waitress, it was instant chemistry and they've been together ever since.

Their first date:

"We went up to the mission, just talked and got to know each other better"

The Proposal:

"We ALWAYS loved to go to the Cliffs in Pismo, there is a little secluded beach down the stairway. He had his sister pick me up and take me down there... and he came from behind me and got on one knee and ask me to marry him... after he asked both our families came out from under the stairway."

I Love her eyes, her strength, her smile, her laugh, her passion, her love, I love her
— Saul
He is so funny and he is the most kind hearted man I have ever met. I love the way he loves me... The way he looks at me has not change since the day I met him... and I really love that
— Ashley

Avila beach : Engagement session : Erica+Larry : Central Coast wedding Photography by Andrea de Anda

I'm so happy to share this engagement session, We've been planing this session from months now and reschedule over rain and weather difficulties, and guess that, that day was no exception, It was a foggy day at Avila Beach, but that didn't stop us from having a great time, documenting a beautiful couple and shooting beautiful images. This is by far, one of my favorites, Thank you so much Erica and Larry for a great day !

We started in the beautiful Avila Inn hotel were they got engaged a few months back
