Sand or Land?

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the original dress I had picked for my engagement shoot. Even before I got engaged I always envisioned these pictures would be taken by the beach. My fiancé and I agreed that we would have them done in Laguna Beach because that was the place we first met. Once I saw this dress on LuLu’s website I knew I HAD to have it. It was PERFECT for the laid back vibe I was going for! The best part about it is that it’s designed to be worn many different ways. So, for me this was a slam dunk purchase because I wouldn’t feel like a repeat offender when I would wear it again. Well… fast forward to a few months later I decided I wanted to do something different.

After talking to my friend Amanda (The Southcoast Movement Blog) and her husband they mentioned to me that Soka University was a perfect spot for an engagement shoot. After looking at pictures online I was sold, and convinced Brett that we should ditch the beach idea. We ended up going for a completely different look/theme (post found here and here). As for my unique LuLu Maxi well that didn’t make the cut either however, it’s still one of my favorite purchases to this day.

What do you guys think? Did I make the right decision by choosing “land” over “sand”? I hope you enjoy the pictures and thank you for stopping by!
