A Sunset Rodeo Beach Marin Headlands Engagement Session

Although the water isn’t always warm enough for taking a dip, Northern California’s rugged coastline is an utter gem! For Ashley and Brooks’ engagement session, we headed to Rodeo Beach in the Marin Headlands, just a 30 minute drive north of San Francisco. The two brought their adorable golden retriever pup along, Moose! His parents are head over heels in love and are clearly up for a life adventure together! Their chemistry just radiated outward and that always leads to a magical engagement session.

This outdoorsy couple wasn’t shy about taking a little hike up the rugged cliffs!

Up the pathway from the beach are AMAZING views of the ocean and the outcropping of California coastline.

The bride isn’t the only one that is wearing an engagement ring! Brooks’ ring is made up from different types of wood, including aspen. Brooks’ home state of Colorado is where the two will be having an intimate wedding ceremony.
