This gorgeous weather and golden light has us dreaming of summer days!! Tommy & Veronica are adorable and their engagement session was stunning! We started the evening with drinks at The Biltmore and then made our way over to the carousel at Chase Palm Park. They are so cute and playful and if you’ve ever tried to kiss while on horses at opposite heights on a carousel you know how difficult it can be, but these two mastered it the first time and kissed and laughed the whole ride! We were so impressed! Then we headed over to Butterfly Beach to catch that gorgeous golden light, and we smiled as we watched the way they love each other! It’s clear they’re free to be themselves with each other, and we had such a wonderful time photographing their love! We finished off the evening by taking off her beautiful Jimmy Choo heels and walking on the beach toward a beautiful sunset. It was a perfect evening through and through! Congrats Tommy & Veronica, we are so excited for your wedding!
Oh what a fun way to start off February with a classic wedding at Calamogis Ranch! It was a wonderful celebration at one of our favorite venues, and it felt like summer!
Kenny and Rachel had their ceremony under a hundred year old oak tree covered in flowers and cascading lights. Oh what a dream!! As we were photographing the toasts we watched Kenny place his hand on his bride’s chair and pull her as close as he could to put his arm around her, and Rachel leaned her head against his shoulder and just took it all in. What a beautiful love they have for each other and what a wonderful moment to remember! Congrats Kenny & Rachel!
Mike & Ash are so cute together! James and I had the pleasure of photographing two weddings last year where they were both in the bridal party, and now they are the ones getting married! Yay! We had a blast during their engagement session and we are so excited to photograph their wedding this summer!
We love sunshine and golden light, but there is something about a stormy sky that holds mystery and romance. We’re so excited to kick off 2016 with Connor & Margaret’s engagement session! They are high school sweethearts and they were a dream to photograph! They’re stunning from the inside out, and the way they look at each other is captivating! We were thrilled for our rainy day adventure filled with romance, and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding in May!
Oh how we love this classy couple! They looked like they were ready for the red carpet when the arrived for their engagement session (insert heart eyed emojis!). We are obsessed with Michael’s timeless suit and Brittany’s stunning gown (by Badly Mischka), and on top of looking fantastic they are so sweet and fun! Their engagement session was truly a dream, and we are thrilled to photograph their wedding at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara in November!
Oh how we love proposals! Every time we get to photograph a proposal it gets our hearts racing and our happy tears flowing! We were thrilled when Josh contacted us and told us of his plans to surprise Kelsey by walking on the beach and proposing at sunset! When the day came, James and I pretended to be beach goers (and we sat 100 years away from each other to make it look like we didn’t know each other). We pretended to read our books until till they walked past us and then we pulled out our cameras and began to photograph them. Josh and Kelsey stopped and held each other for a minute, and then he had her read a love note, and just as our hearts were racing and we thought they couldn’t beat any faster… he dropped to one knee and pulled out a gorgeous ring! It was perfect and Kelsey was so surprised!! Then we came out of hiding and rejoiced and cried happy tears with them, and got to take some wonderful and emotional portraits as the sun went down! A cute couple, a perfect proposal and a gorgeous sunset made for a wonderful day! Congrats Josh + Kelsey!
Our hearts are overflowing with thankfulness for this fabulous year! We met and photographed so many incredible, classy, timeless, gorgeous, and madly in love couples who made us fall in love with wedding photography again and again! And we worked with the BEST vendors in the industry and couldn’t imagine weddings without them! We are thrilled to share a few of our favorites with you, and we can’t wait for all of our 2016 weddings!! Cheers!
We are so excited to share some of our favorite engagement photos of 2015! It’s been a fabulous year and we photographed engagement sessions all over the country! We started the year with an engagement session in Zion, Utah on New Years day with a fresh dusting of snow and a couple who endured below freezing weather and still looked fabulous, and we finished the year with a local engagement session with an amazing couple who wore the best engagement outfits we’ve ever seen! We are thrilled to share these today, and stay tuned for our best of wedding post tomorrow!!
We are so excited to share this wonderful engagement session! Matt and Amy are a beautiful couple, and when we heard they wanted to do their session in Los Angeles we were thrilled! We always love traveling and photographing in new places and spaces! We love Matt + Amy’s refined sense of style and the city was the perfect place for their engagement session! We started at the 1st street bridge and had to dodge cars and the metro as we ran across the bridge, which made for an exciting adventure! The LA skyline is in perfect view from the bridge, and it was so fun to photograph Matt and Amy with an epic backdrop! Then we crossed town to finish at the LACMA Lamppost exhibit and right as we arrived it started to rain! These two weren’t phased for a second, they danced, twirled, dipped and kissed through the lampposts, and it was dreamy, romantic and absolutely perfect! We loved every moment with Matt + Amy and we can’twait to photograph their winter wedding in the new year!
