Hollie + Mike [San Luis Obispo Engagement Session]

Hollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan ParreiraIn the cool of a pre-spring day, Hollie and Mike wandered through Eucalyptus, held hands in the tall grass, and took a Harley out on the calm country roads that belong to the Coast.Hollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan ParreiraHollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan ParreiraHollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan ParreiraI have to say, I love it when a couple wants to throw something different into a photo session whether it’s dressing up or having a theme, it just makes their photos more….”them.” Hollie and Mike wanted to add a Harley to the mix for their engagement photos. I was more than up for it! Of course, I had to ask once we were in the midst of our time together, “So, why the Harley?” Well, it comes down to a little game of “Lets Make A Deal.” Mike is a motorcycle cop and, well, loves motorcycles. Hollie lovingly informed him a few years ago, “You can get your own Harley when I get my ring!” ….she got the ring, now it’s his turn.Hollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan ParreiraHollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan ParreiraI am so looking forward to their wedding day where hundreds of family and friends will surround them as they commit their lives to each other to create one shared life. I’m sorry, but I’m quite sure that I have one of the most amazing jobs around!Hollie and Mike Engagement Photos by Christan Parreira
