We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to spend with this gorgeous couple to relive a very special moment in their lives... their FIRST DATE! When we first learned that Patty and Freddy had their first date at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, we couldn't agree more that it was the perfect place for their engagement shoot. We met up at Ideal Cafe at the end of the pier to have a quick toast to start our fun-filled afternoon. Then we made our way down the boardwalk, hopped on the Ferris Wheel and Sky Glider, and best off all... grabbed some dipping dots (which was a must-do for us since it holds a funny memory for the couple from that first date). The sun set much faster than we wanted it to... We truly could have spent all day with these two, but the short time we spent together was more than enough to witness and capture the love and passion between them! Congrats again to Patty and Freddy. We are so honored and so excited to capture your big day!
