paige & dane’s engagement | coronado, ca

Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Boy hits volleyball to girl. Boy gets girl. 🙂

Paige and Dane are two fabulous pro beach volleyball players who love what they do and love each other. They have a blast together and that’s so evident.We knew that their engagement session was going to be super fun!

When Paige came to our home studio to meet with us about photographing their wedding this Spring, she shared their proposal story which is centered around the decorated beach volleyball shown in the first photo here.  How fun is that?! We love to hear unique proposals. Dane really gave it a lot of thought and came up with something that was so them. That story is going to be a fun one to share with their kids someday, don’t you think?!

It’s so awesome when our couples are up for anything. We seriously have the MOST FUN couples! When we started talking with Paige and Dane about their engagement session in Coronado and capturing things they love to do together, we discovered that one of their traditions is to go ice skating at the Hotel Del every year for their dating anniversary. They asked if we would be up for capturing that for them. Of course, we answered with an enthusiastic YES!!! And even more impressive, they’ve got some pretty mad skills on the ice!! Can’t believe they were able to dodge all the other skaters to show us their killer moves like the one below. NICE!

Ice skating, beach volleyball, and cruising the streets of a San Diego beach town like Coronado. Sounds like a perfect So Cal day! It’s all captured in their slideshow. Enjoy!

Love the real life moments in these shots. What can we say? We have a soft spot for black and white beach images 🙂

As you can see, the volleyball played a major supporting role in Paige and Dane’s engagement session!

These two are so sweet and genuine with each other!

Paige and Dane could totally be models, right? They were so awesome at shifting gears from total rockstar to just being themselves, laughing and having a great time.  Don’t you just love how Paige is looking up at Dane in this shot? So sweet!

ROCK IT OUT, you two.

Paige brought a bit of her Texan side to the session… Cowboy boots + old town garage + rad couple = AWESOME!

We chased the last bit of sunlight out of the day, followed by killer margaritas (yay for the Prickly Pear creation!) and great conversation over at Miguel’s, a little hidden gem in Coronado.

Thanks, Paige & Dane for a fantastic engagement session. We had such a blast and can’t wait to capture your wedding this Spring at the beautiful Levyland estate!
