Engagement Session at the Mission San Juan Capistrano

Engagement Session at the Mission San Juan Capistrano

Engagements season is still in full swing and I’m editing up a storm over here!

Beatrice and Albert’s engagement session started at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano. Every single corner of the grounds is like a postcard with so many cute little nooks for gorgeous photos! Afterwards we stopped at a nearby park for some golden hour photos in the field. It was my first time meeting Beatrice and Albert in person, so I absolutely loved this time that we got to spend together. Not only are they impossibly beautiful together but also two of the sweetest people!

Romantic Engagement Session at the Greystone Mansion

Romantic Engagement Session at the Greystone Mansion

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite photos from Ann-Margaret and Shawn’s engagement session at the Greystone Mansion - it was such a pleasure to photograph these two on film!

When choosing a location for their engagement session, Ann-Margaret and Shawn were drawn to old-world and romantic style. We discussed a few options and decided to go with the beautiful Greystone Mansion which is a dream to photograph. To schedule a shoot there isn’t an easy task, but after a few times rescheduling we were finally able to confirm the date for their shoot and it was so worth the wait!

I loved all the blues and hints of dusty rose that photograph so beautifully on film and Maher Haroun created the loveliest bouquet that tied it all together. Cannot wait for these two lovebirds to tie the knot this year!

Lauren & Aaron’s Engagement Session at El Matador State Beach, Malibu

Lauren & Aaron’s Engagement Session at El Matador State Beach, Malibu

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorites from Lauren and Aaron beautiful engagement session we photographed this past weekend. The film scans from Goodman Film Lab started rolling in today, and I just couldn’t wait!

Aaron grew up surfing in Malibu, so going to the beach is something that is really meaningful and special. El Matador is always a top choice because other beaches can hardly compare to the beautiful sea caves and massive rocks sprinkled along the coast.

Lauren and Aaron met through a mutual friend and the rest is history. They will be tying the knot this spring at Calamigos Ranch, and I cannot wait to document their celebration and work along my favorites - Weddings by Susan Dunne and Mulberry & Moss.

Kelley & Ryan's Engagement Session at the Santa Barbara Courthouse

Kelley & Ryan's Engagement Session at the Santa Barbara Courthouse

I'll start out by saying Kelley and Ryan might possibly be two of the sweetest human beings! They are so incredibly loving and caring for each other, and spending this afternoon roaming around the Santa Barbara Courthouse grounds was an absolute pleasure. 

This was the first time we actually met in person, so we got to catch up on all things life and wedding planning. They will be tying the knot at the beautiful Ojai Valley Inn next year, which will be planned and coordinated by the talented Alissa Hussey. To say that I can hardly wait would be an understatement! 

Here are a few of my favorites from their session. Special shout out to Peonies and Petals for making this beautiful bouquet!
