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!
