This session was so, so much fun! I had actually never been to Benicia before, but may just have to make it a point to visit more often now… With quaint shops, beautiful parks, and breathtaking views of the Carquinez Bridge, Benicia certainly has plenty of historic charm! Add to that list that the couple grew up in Benicia too and we had the perfect place for their engagement session!! We started out at the Union Hotel – a very charming bed & breakfast hotel with quite an interesting history as well…!
I really can’t say enough good things about this couple. Samantha started with some great ideas for the theme of their engagement – choosing the hotel and communicating their vision as well. And let me just say that Samantha certainly knows her fashion! Her outfits were absolutely amazing! She even wore her mother’s beautiful wedding gown with intricate lace and coupled it with a gorgeous parasol and veil. It looked simply stunning! Both of them looked fabulous! We had a blast throughout and I could tell that they are madly in love with each other. Once you take a look at the photographs, you’ll know too!
Thank you both for an amazing session (and a special thanks to the mother of the bride-to-be for her wonderful assistance!)! I literally could have posted hundreds here there were so many breathtaking images. You make such a lovely couple! Enjoy your sneak peek and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding!
