Lindsay and Dillon celebrated their engagement with a photo session. I am excited to share with you some beach engagement photography! This session was done at my favorite spot in Carmel, California. Better yet, the session was done at golden hour! My favorite time of day to photograph a session!
Carmel Wedding Photographer
Hey, there! My name is Dana Arnold and I am a wedding photographer based in Carmel, California. I love photographing weddings and engagement sessions for all couples. These couples value photography and admire all the fun moments captured. I have been in business for four years now, and love getting to connect with my wedding couples by doing engagement sessions. It’s so fun to just get in front of the camera. Plus, meeting your wedding photographer before the wedding is a plus!
About the couple
As a wedding photographer, connection is one of the most important things in a professional relationship. To me, if I do not vibe well with the couple during the consult, I might not be their photographer. When I met with Lindsay and Dillon via zoom, there was an immediate connection. We talked about life before we even got into the wedding details. When I asked Dillon a question, his answer actually made me cry. I love when the guys get involved in the consult, but I love it even more when they are open and honest. It was in that moment that I just knew that we would get along great. Thankfully, they felt the same way. On the spot, they knew it was meant to be and booked me that evening to be their photographer!
Beach Engagement Photography
This engagement session is one for the books. We could not stop laughing and just talked about so much during that one hour shoot. When it came to the champagne pop, the cork popped off on it’s own! Then, when Dillon sprayed the bottle, he got it in Lindsay’s eyes! Poor girl couldn’t even open her eyes for a few moments. However, with the help of my cardigan sleeve from Taylor Swift, she was able to rub it out. Not without raccoon eyes, but thankfully that is why you do this last!
Dillon and Lindsay, I just wanted to say thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. I cannot wait for your Wedgewood Carmel wedding this summer! It is going to be one amazing and beautiful wedding!
Now, he are some of my favorites from their engagement session!
