Mikayla and Ben’s Engagement at Alameda Beach

Captured & submitted by Shannon Alyse Photography


Ben and Mikayla’s engagement session at Alameda Beach was nothing short of magical, with the sun peeking out on an overcast day. Living and working in Oakland, California, this couple’s journey from high school acquaintances to inseparable partners is a testament to the love and respect they have for each other. Their story began at a rowing club, took them on separate paths to Washington and Tennessee for college, and reconnected them in 2017 for a holiday break that changed everything. With Ben’s UK roots, travel is a big part of their lives, culminating in a surprise proposal in Split, Croatia. As they plan their wedding in Ohio, they’re were looking to capture their personalities in their photos. Mikayla specifically said, they wanted their photos to a mix of their playful personalities and intimate moments!
