Kelly & Matt: Stand Up Paddle Boarding Engagement Photo Shoot

June 16, 2015 / Pillar Point Marina, Half Moon Bay, California 94019

This engagement shoot was super fun. Kelly and Matt are new to the world of stand up paddle boarding and thought it would be fun to have their engagement photos shot while they were on the water. Since paddle boarding is their new-found love and shared hobby, it makes perfect sense to me! Their only problem was worrying that they wouldn’t find a photographer daring enough to take his or her camera out on a board. And that’s where I enter the picture! Of course I’d do it! Along with Chicken, Travis and horses, paddle boarding is among my top favorite things to do. So, armed with my usual camera, lenses and the addition of a few GoPro items, we hit the boards.

The adventure took place at Pillar Point Marina near Half Moon Bay, California. Neither Kelly nor Matt had ever paddled without a wetsuit before. And here they were, dressed up for photos. At one point, while trying to kiss across the boards, Matt fell in the water! Now doesn’t that just make the photos even more priceless?
