Well, we may be breaking out the trench coats and pumps, but we’re at that perfect time of the year where we can still go nude on the leg. You may want to take a page out of this ridiculously gorgeous bride-to-be’s book and pair your prettiest pointy pumps with a bare leg for your weekend festivities, because goodness does she make it look chic. Before you sign off for a few days, make sure to check out the rest of this stunning engagement shoot from Marisa Holmes Photographer! xoxo

From the photographer… Lauren and Dorian are such an amazing couple in love and were more than happy to snuggle up and steal kisses from each other during our session. They both looked spectacular dressed up for their photos around Downtown Laguna, but Lauren admitted she couldn’t wait to get comfy and go barefoot on the beach to capture casual intimate photos which represents them so well as a couple. I always tell my couples it is important for their engagement photos to tell the story of who they are and not what’s trendy or what other people think. I’m so excited Lauren and Dorian didn’t hesitate to make sure their session was uniquely them and expressed who they are and how they wanted their photos to feel. If you are comfortable and having fun together as a couple the camera will see it and it makes for great photos. I’m looking forward to their wedding in Laguna in October with the fabulous Brooke Keegan.
