This Epic Engagement Shoot at the Beach Would Make Ariel Jealous

Katie Arnold and her fiancé, Luke, epitomize California love in their beach engagement shoot. The blogger behind The Style Riot has strong ties to the ocean growing up in Southern California, while Luke became addicted to surfing ever since moving from Chicago four years ago.

"His love for the ocean is contagious, and has turned a girl who used to be self-conscious in a bikini into a beach junkie just like him — I'm even learning to surf!" said Katie.

The beach theme captured the couple in their element and stemmed from their picturesque engagement in Honolua Bay, HI. Katie's sister and photographer, Emily Illuminate, shot the two near their home in Laguna Beach and created a fun but authentic visual story that's almost too perfect.
