Jessie and Eric's Engagement Session in San Diego


you may have noticed it's been a little warmer lately. no, it's not summer coming around the corner. it's jessie and eric. we boldly walked past the fire danger warning signs and shot their engagement session amongst the dry brush of san diego's back country. luckily, no fires were started that day, but i did suffer a slight burn from overexposure to their hotness.
















sizzle sizzle










jessie busted out the sexylicious look and nearly melted the camera. try not to get lost in her eyes.










we named the dog indiana! not really. i just wanted to say that. jessie and eric brought their sweet doggy along to join in a few shots.




must love dogs!













fearing jessie and eric's lava-like hotness would set the fields ablaze, we bailed the country for a little cityscape. chain-link me likey.




caged heat
















if you think you're hot, try wearing body fur. sweet relief came from a kiddie fountain.










ahhhh. who's up for round two?!










i love it when couples aren't afraid to have a little fun in public. thank you jessie and eric for being down with everything we asked. it was such a pleasure working with you.




that's a wrap. cut, print, check the gate. jessie. eric. we're done guys. the camera's are off now. ok then. we'll see you two later.

Nicole Liebgott Photography said...

Wowwzers... Pretty steamy my friend.. I was looking foward to meeting you and kimmi on Wednesday for the Jasmine star pug but no where did I see you Ohana SAD!!! Ok I'm over it.. soon my friend soon (we will meet) Ok so Tis session is super sexalicious but I am really leaving a comment for the post below.. Dave everytime I look at your art it always does something warm and fuzzy to my heart.. And this shoot below did it for me.. This reminds me of my childhood and all those summers at the beach.. My fav. is the little girl checkin out her prince charming ( surfing ) and the ones with mom and kids. This mom is beautiful and full of life and love for her children. I know I know I sound like sappy sally today, but it reminds me of my mom and how much love she has for her kids..

heather said...

Unbelievably sexilicious!!!! These shots, every single one of them are so HOT! Good Lord guys! Her eyes I must admit are dreamy! I love the dog and the fountain sequence too!!!

Angel said...

Wow! Hot couple, hot pics! :) I always wonder if this is a compliment or not, but it's meant to be one from me...every picture looked like it should be in the pages of a magazine! Loved them! Loved that the dog got in on the pics too! :)
