Engagements, for whatever reason, are the one event in anyone’s life where I can guarantee I will cry. Literally anyone’s engagement – from tv shows, strangers, secondhand stories –  all of them will draw those tears (the happy kind, of course). I think it’s the excitement and surprise of the whole event that is so special to me and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate such a momentous occasion than an engagement session like this one from Teale Photography. Whether it’s snuggling up and sharing coffee or letting the ocean waves crash upon them, these sweethearts sure know how to make a girl swoon. See it all in the gallery right here.

From the Bride-to-Be… Jon and I were so excited to have our friend Teale, from Teale Photography, do our engagement shoot. We wanted to stick with something timeless and “us,” nothing too hip. I completely trust Teale, so I just told her my idea about the coffee shop and let her run with it from there, and this is what she came up with! We LOVE our photos and can’t wait to have her shoot our wedding at The Prado in November.
