A few years ago I photographed Kyle + Kailee’s beautiful wedding at the Four Seasons in Santa Barbra, and after their wedding they told me they wanted to do family photos every year! Kailee’s family lives on an almond orchard, so we decided it would be a fun idea to take photos on their property every year when the trees are in bloom! I had never experienced almond trees in bloom, so when James and I arrived at their house and saw the trees we were in creative heaven. I had no idea trees could be so beautiful!! We had an amazing time walking through the orchard and taking photographs! I absolutely loved photographing in a new environment and I am so excited to share these images with you!! Plus they have an amazing St Bernard named “Bernie” who was in their engagement photos, wedding photos, and of course he had to be in their family photos too! He is a huge lovable dog and I am so glad they brought him along!
Gosh I love these two! They have one of the best stories!
They’ve had a crush on each other since elementary school!! How crazy is that?! Cody transferred schools in fourth grade, and he noticed Amy right away. Over the next few years they got closer and closer as friends, started sitting by each other in every class, instant messaging each other till 3am! Then in high school Cody was the captain of the basketball team and Amy was the captain of the cheerleading squad, talk about the perfect high school set up! Their junior year they went on a double date and afterwards when they were walking on the beach Cody got down on one knee and asked her to be his girlfriend! Fast forward 8 years later, and Cody got back down on one knee and asked her to marry him! Their story seems like it’s straight out of a book, and when you meet them you know their love for each other is genuine and inspiring!
James and I were so excited to photograph the Cody’s surprise proposal to Amy a few months back, and we had an amazing time photographing their engagement session last weekend! Since the proposal was on a rooftop in downtown LA (dreamy, I know) we decided to do something entirely different for the engagement session! We headed up the mountain to Knapp’s Castle and it was incredible! The light was golden and gorgeous! While we were shooting a group of 30-40 people arrived so we had a bit of challenge shooting around them, but Cody and Amy were great and we successfully avoided the group and got some breath taking images! Enjoy!
I know I already posted one sneak peek from Cody and Amy’s engagement session, but I just had to post another!
Cody and Amy an incredible couple, and were a joy to photograph!!
As I am editing the images from their shoot I am drooling over the gorgeous light! It’s unreal!
So excited to post more images from their shoot so you can see what I’m talking about!
These two are the cutest! They are fun, playful, and hilarious! They made me and James laugh over and over again during the shoot! We had a blast photographing them, and we loved watching them interact, and it is so clear that they’re in love, and they are perfect for each other!! The way they love each other is honest, beautiful, and rare, and we are so excited for them to tie the knot!!
Justin and Nina are awesome! They have a playful love for each other, and James and I had such an amazing time photographing them! As you can see, they’re a good looking couple! Justin has an amazing mustache and Nina is absolutely stunning, and when they stood next to each other my creative mind was in heaven! We had a great time adventuring through trees as the sun set behind us! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in the fall!
