What if you loved the beach so much, that you and your fiancee decided to drive all the way from Arizona to Santa Cruz, California, for a very special engagement session? If that happened…it might look a lot like these dreamy images shot by the oh-so-lovely Danielle Gillett Photography. I die. A little more about Bette and Dan’s engagement story is below!

This creative diy bride wanted something different for her engagement pictures. Since both her and her fiancee are drawn to the ocean she wanted their engagement session to capture their love and its serene and unending beauty, they traveled from Arizona to do a beach camp-out themed engagement in Santa Cruz, Ca. Dan picked out Bette’s dress and togehter they gathered items that have been passed down for decades in their family. They even created the tent using a tree from her parents property. For the shoot her mom and aunt showed up to help set everything up. It was truly a family effort and will fit nicely with their diy vintage surf themed wedding in September.
