Beach Engagement Photos | Engagement Session for Joanie and Anthony


July 15, 2021

June gloom is a known thing here in the Bay Area of California. Event at 9am, you will find yourself at the beach surrounded by thick fog. The sun, soon enough, will shine through and the fog will disappear. California is a beautiful place to get married and have your Beach Engagement Photos to share with your friends and family!

Hey, there! My name is Dana Arnold and I am a Monterey, California wedding photographer happily serving couples all over California. You will find me photographing couples all over the Bay Area who fly from all over the country. I love photographing couples who value photography and every moment captured during their wedding or engagement. It’s especially fun when I get to capture engagement for the couples who hire me to be their wedding photographer! Today, it’s all about Joanie and Anthony, and their foggy engagement session in Santa Cruz!

Meet the couple

Joanie and Anthony reached out to me just a few months ago searching for a wedding photographer to cover their big day. Joanie and Anthony are getting married at Carmel Mission, followed by having an outdoor ceremony at The Perry House in Monterey. When they decided to hire me as their wedding photographer, we decided on an engagement session closer to their wedding day. They are getting married at the end of July!

One thing I love about these two are that they never stop smiling. From the moment I gave them a “vaccination hug”, to the end of their session. All morning long, Joanie and Anthony were so giggly! Getting to photograph their love was so special to me. There is something about getting to meet a couple before the wedding day. We are able to build a relationship and get to know each other more! I loved getting to hang out with Joanie and Anthony for an hour and photograph some beautiful moments!
