I met Priya and Eli a little after 8am at the Beach Chalet for their engagement shoot. They brought their slobbery pooch and upbeat selves. Priya and Eli met at UC Davis (my alma mater). I took my first photography class while at Davis. It just happens that Eli taught photography at the Davis Craft Center there for 5 years.
Eli knew the drill. Outdoor shoots tend to be easiest at either the beginning or end of the day to take advantage of the sunrise and sunset light. The sunset is usually an easier time than sunrise. It is tough to get out of the house in the morning. Sunday morning was a bit chilly, but there is something great about being by the water at the start of the day. We chatted, walked around the Beach Chalet and Ocean Beach, and took some engagement pictures.
