Matt and Jen, Engagement at the Montage Laguna Beach

So there I was sitting at the lobby bar in the Montage, and up roles this couple. They stood there for a moment staring at me… so I stared back. I was there to meet a couple for an engagement session but this couldn’t be them. I wasn’t expecting such attractiveness… After a few moments of awkward silence and staring, Matt walked up and said “Paul?” Turns out that is my name…

Matt and Jen are absolutley awesome. They are both incredible accomplished for their age and are obviously quite smitten (it was very easy to get kissing pictures). The level of connection they share for each other is evident in every image I captured. Matt was always ready to give Jen a little verbal encouragement (and act like a goof to get her to smile) and Jen was always ready to snuggle in and get close when the situation demanded.

We spent the better part of a Saturday late afternoon and evening at the Montage Resort and Spa in Laguna Beach, walking around, talking about how they met, how they got engaged, and what they envisioned for their wedding day. It was a pretty great day… I think the images prove it!

Matt and Jen, thanks for letting me be your photog for the day… I know your Fall 2010 nuptials will be ones to remember and the beginning of a amazing union.
