Naomi + Andrew [San Luis Obispo Engagement]

Rain, Rain Go Away… or have a couple that wants to play!

Naomi & Andrew had planned their trip up to the coast for their engagement session long before the rain decided to invade us for days on end. As their day got closer, we were all watching accuweather and, what do you know, their session was guaranteed rain! We had two options: cancel or run with it. Naomi & Andrew chose to run with it… and we did making this one of my most adventurous and kick back sessions yet!
With 15 minutes of rain-free skies, we ran into some tall grass and made some memories (in a very platonic way of course, the lovey dovey stuff belongs to them and them alone!)

When the thunder cracked and the rain let loose, so did we. I have to say, a couple that can laugh, love, and play like they did without a care in the world was more than awesome to me. They jumped right into the moment with their rain boots on kicking, jumping, splashing, and kissing. Hands down amazing!

These pictures are gorgeous. Of course I have a slight bias as I am Andrew’s mom. Thanks so much for taking these – we will treasure them. I cannot wait to meet you at the wedding and see the pictures you take for the big day. I suspect they will be even better!!
