Photography: Smith and Hansen Engagement Session in San Diego

When this e-sess from photographer Iliana Morton Photography landed in my inbox, I seriously offered a a little prayer to Baby Jesus. Because y'all know how much I lurve me some naturally-styled, casually beautiful, and full of personality engagement sessions. And this one? Scores, baby.

This is an engagement session so sweet and personal that you'll feel like you know the couple just from looking at their photographs. Julie Smith and Darren Hansen chose to work with Iliana Morton of Iliana Morton Photography and did a fantastically real, natural, and fun engagement session in San Diego. My favorite bits? All the smoochin', the coolio dandelion graffiti, and the photos of her standing on his feet. Check it, y'all:

I like to think of this excellent engagement session from Iliana Morton Photography as a guide for couples looking for a simple, natural, real, "us" type of e-sess. Keep it simple, use your surroundings, and let your love for each other be the most interesting thing in the photographs. Would any of you consider doing such a sunny engagement session? Are you hoping to showcase a real connection in your images? Or were you thinking of doing something completely different? Do tell!
