Paul and Suzy’s Hendry’s Beach Engagement photos were taken on a cold day, but the duo cozied on up together, along with their adorable pup, Dexter, and breezed right through it. They were even brave enough to dip their feet in the ocean! To top it off, we lucked out with a gorgeous sunset.

“I proposed to Suzy in Costa Rica on Playa Hermosa.  It was the last night of our trip when we we had the night to ourselves after a long week of hanging with friends.  I had to convince a very tired Suzy to take a walk on the beach after we had been there most of the day.  It was cloudy and kind of raining and she did not want to go, but she did obliged.  We found a log on the beach to sit down on.  We were having a discussion and I interrupted to get on a knee and asked her to marry me.  She thought I was ridiculous but ended up saying yes.”

“Suzy and I met in Oakland, California.  I was in the Americorp working for a non-profit called Playworks and Suzy just received a R.D. License and took a part-time job with ADA called Energy Balance for Kids.  We were paired up to bring exercise and nutrition to a low-income school in the Bay Area.  I would provide the physical activity and Suzy would bring nutritional knowledge to the kids.  We became a great combo, changing the culture of the of school, to the point where the students became confident in their physical abilities and new nutritional knowledge.  I turned a recess of dangers, fights and segregation to a united, fun, safe and playful recess.  Suzy was able to make fruit and veggies cooler than Cheetos and pizza.  We worked together for two years and started dating after the first year.  The kids speculated we were a couple but we kept it cool.”Couple hugging at their HendryCouple hugging at their HendryCouple hugging at their HendryPaul and Suzy’s Hendry’s Beach engagement photos were perfectly located to fit their unique passions. From Paul…

“For the engagement photo session we wanted to keep it local in Santa Barbara and at a place that we go to all the time, and most importantly, allows our dog, Dexter, to roam around. He is everything to us and without him there with us it would have felt like we were missing an important piece. We also love the beach, the sunsets, and the islands in the background.”The newly engaged couple at HendrySunset photos of engaged couple at HendryThe newly engaged couple at HendryThe newly engaged couple during their HendrySunset photos of engaged couple at HendryBride and groom walking along beach at HendrySunset photos of engaged couple at HendrySunset photos of engaged couple at HendryThe colors at Suzy and Paul’s Hendry’s Beach engagement photos turned absolutely magical, with a variety of golden, purple and pink hues.
