Adventurous. Brave. Thrill-Seekers. Just a few of the words that immediately come to mind when thinking about Jackie and Shawn. Just meeting this couple for the first time, you wouldn’t think of them as anything other than a couple that has been together for six years, knows each other better than themselves at times, and madly in love. Engagement session are some of our favorite moments we spend with our
clients friends. Having the opportunity to get to know who they really are is VERY important to us, so when we arrive on their wedding day, we’re not just a hired hand, we’re a friend. And having a friend capture your wedding day makes it that much more special.
While chatting as we hiked the beautiful hill sides of Point Lobos Natural Reserve, we found out Jackie is a professional skydiver. No, I’m not kidding. On a daily basis, she jumps from an airplane that is 33,000 feet in the air. Oh my goodness! We would have never guessed this quite girl did something so extreme! Shawn, who is also an adrenaline junkie, moved to California to do three things. Snowboard, surf, and skydive. Can you guess which he loves most? When they are not skydiving, Shawn spends his day working as a special agent in the military. I wish I could remember the exact words he used because Rachel and I looked at each other and whispered, CSI. Okay, we may watch a little too much crime TV!
We were more than happy to spend the afternoon with Jackie and Shawn in Carmel for the engagement session. Their chemistry is electric and we look forward to documenting their first day as husband and wife in a few months!
