matt + alida // thousand steps beach, laguna beach engagement session

When I first met Matt and Alida on the sand at Thousand Steps Beach in Laguna Beach, I thought, "Oh my gosh! This couple is gorgeous." And, boy, do these photos show off their good looks! BUT, what I love even more about these engagement photos is how they portray their relationship — easy, fun, carefree, supportive, and loving. Every moment of this shoot just fell into place; every moment just felt so right. And, the photos show it.


Alida left me this review, and it just made my heart swell!

"I highly recommend hiring Marissa! She has a beautiful eye and is go good at capturing those candid moments that don't look awkward. She is professional, responsive, and makes you feel right at ease in front of the camera."
