I (@dakaiphotography) Spent the day with these two on their date to the state beach. Devin is a full time wedding photographers and Leitrra makes beautiful Macrame art. These two souls are seriously amazing and they were so much fun to photograph. They wanted to stay true to themselves and as you can see I was able to capture that. I often get asked how am I able to photograph my couples and make them look as comfortable and how is it possible that I'm shooting so close to the water. The first question is seriously very simple and most photographers over look it. You must let them be goofy, let them joke around, let them laugh, let them sing! (even if you end up singing with them.) Most important let them be themselves. When it comes to gear to protect my equipment from the ocean I use “Aquatech base”. I use a canon 5D mark iii and the sigma art 35mm. Hope you guys enjoy the images as much as i had fun taking them.

This couple is super cute. she came all the way from New York to shoot with me.  This session was booked 2 weeks before he left to a 7 months of a military deployment. This session was seriously full of mix emotions.
