A couple’s engagement shoot is oftentimes their first experience being photographed. Almost always when that’s the case, the couple apologetically says how awkward they are in front of the camera. Awkward may be how they feel, but thanks to the magic of natural chemistry, its certainly not how they look. Justin and Sophie are a prime example of a couple unsure of their photogenic-ness while we’re thinking ‘let’s get this beautiful pair in a magazine!’ Chemistry and loveliness out the roof.

We love learning more about the couple before or during a shoot. Hearing how they met and who they were/are now always helps set the tone. Justin and Sophie met while working at the upscale gym, Equinox, in Santa Monica. After first sight of Sophie, Justin wasted no time charming her. In turn, they wasted no time being friends - their chemistry was much too strong for that. Their love has grown stronger and surer with each day since. Their photos from a golden evening in Laguna Beach tell the tale.

Justin and Sophie’s wedding will be next year in Beverly Hills, and we can’t wait to see how much more these two glow on the day they say ‘I do’. Look out major wedding publications, we’re coming for you! Congrats to the exquisite future Mr. and Mrs. Sanders.
