{engagement} aly + justin

i’m so honored to have leila of {leila brewster photography} on p&p today not only because she one talented lady but for allowing me to share a sweet love session of her long time friends aly + justin.  the shoot went on for two days with the first afternoon session taking place at the couple’s home,  where they played with their dog, chickens and just hung out.  
The following morning they set out to a secret spot in san clemente and took some pictures under an oak tree in a field ….
leila was kind enough to share a snippet of the email she received from aly + justin after they saw the photos… "being in nature and having it documented was an unreal experience for us, it was spiritual, therapeutic, and inspiring".  i know these photographs lack lots of details that are in most shoots, but what it lacks in details, it makes up for in nature, which is what the couple wanted to capture more than anything.”
congrats to  aly + justin!!

  1. Gorgeousness all around. Personally, I'm a little obsessed with the photo of the doggie. Because he is super cute and I want one. :)

  2. Really beautiful shot! I think it's great that she was able to capture so much of the surroundings for the couple, and don't think she sacrificed anything at all in going that route. Delightful photos!

  8. Those are lovely! I really like the concept, the way the couple looked very natural and comfortable, not overly-poised and posed...
