It was a foggy day along the coast in San Diego when Alexa and Ben joined Kim and Crew to celebrate their recent engagement. Though the sky was overcast and the air a bit chilly, the couple's great friendship and apparent love for each other kept the atmosphere cheery and joyous. Alexa is equal party spunky and classy while Ben exudes all things cool as he showers his girl with so much poised affection.
The couple met in the ocean — literally. As avid surfers, they always seemed to see each other in the waves. What was first accidental, and communal, became intentional as their friendship grew and they started to meet in the surf purposefully. The relationship then began to grow on land and their commitment to and love for each other is now so strong and beautiful.
This fun, playful styled engagement shoot speaks to the couple's story and their lives together. Colorful, boho, laid back and chic — this is Southern California loving at it's finest.
Congratulations Alexa and Ben! I cannot wait for the two of you to become one this summer!
