Arianna + Caleb

Sharing Arianna and Caleb’s Huntington Beach engagement photos is loooong overdue (seeing as how their engagement session was just over a year ago). Even though it’s old news in terms of wedding seasons (I mean, so last year), I still love just about everything from this session.

It shouldn’t have been unexpected, but the Tuesday in March we had planned for these photos was rainy and grey… not at all what most couples would want for their Huntington Beach engagement photos. However, Arianna and Caleb were such good sports, and it was apparent from the beginning that a few drops of rain wouldn’t dampen their spirits. (No pun intended.)

Lately, I’ve been really digging getting details with a human element, and as I was going through these pictures today, I realised that it probably started here! I just loved their hands clasped, and it was the perfect way to showcase her ring.

What iconic Huntington Beach session would be complete without a photo in front of Ruby’s on the pier? And as much as I loved the photo, I’ll never forget hearing the story of Arianna and Caleb’s first date right here in this spot. (One of the cutest stories ever! Talk about an epic, never-ending first date.) Every time I’ve been here since, I’ve remembered their story.

Not only does Caleb have the ability to make Arianna laugh at the drop of the hat, but these two share deep, tender moments together as well. I was so appreciative of their willingness to be themselves throughout this whole session.

I’ve taken photos on this lifeguard stand before, but photographing it in a new way was a fun challenge!

Of course, I’m so late in posting these photos that you can now see their McCoy Equestrian Center wedding in Chino Hills. (Because I know you’re like me and can’t get enough of these two adorable humans!!) Despite the grey skies and rainy weather, I love everything about these Huntington Beach engagement photos and I’m so happy we had the chance to do them!
