Pulling off a suprise proposal can be tricky and nerve racking, but John did a fantastic job! John contacted us about a family portrait sesison for him and Jenna and their adorable boxer named Wrigley! They make the cutest family and we were so excited to photograph them, and then when he told us he was going to PROPOSE halfway through the portrait session, I just about peed my pants with excitement! James and I love photographing proposalas, and this was the perfect way to capture such a special moment! And we loved that Jenna had no idea what was about to happen!!
When the day came it was pouring rain, so we started by taking photos inside the Santa Barbara Court House and then slowly moved outside. When the time came, they ditched the umbrellas, embraced the pouring rain and he took her over by the brick stairs and got down on one knee!! It was dreamy and beautiful! As you can see Jenna was surprised and so excited, and they both shed a few happy tears!! It was a perfect moment and we all had a balst! And even Wrigley (their boxer) had a fun time being part of the photoshoot too! Congrats John + Jenna! We are so excited for you to tie the knot!!
While we were in Utah we did quite a few photoshoots, and here is a sneak peek of an amazing photoshoot with the beautiful Fong Lin.
It’s that time of year again when we have dozens of family photoshoots for Christmas and Holiday cards!!! This week we got to photograph one of our favorite families in the world, the Lazos!
We had a blast, and I am so excited to share this one with you!! Aren’t they a good looking family???
These two lovely humans are not engaged, but we had SO much fun doing a photoshoot while they were visiting Santa Barbara! Jeff is a professional magician, and he is the BEST magician I have ever seen! And Deanna is a princess at Disneyworld, how amazing is that?! They are one of the coolest couples ever, and I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of the magic that happened during our photoshoot!
The de Raad family is incredible!! They are one of the kindest, prettiest and most fun families we have ever photographed!! James and I had a blast taking these pictures of them!! And we just can’t get over their perfect style and cuteness!! So excited to share these!!
sneak peek from a beautiful family photoshoot James and I did on the Oxnard coast!!
Lupe the most stunning pregnant woman I’ve ever seen!! She makes being pregnant look SO good! The craziest thing is, it was over 90 degrees in Santa Barbara as we did this photoshoot, and Greg and Lupe still look stunning as always!! I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding 3 years ago, and I am so honored and excited to continue capturing their family!!! We are also doing a newborn photoshoot once the baby is born, which I am so excited about! They will make such amazing parents, and with their good looks, I can’t wait to see how amazing their baby is!
Thanks to Leah from Unveiled for doing a fantastic job on Lupe’s makeup!!
sneak peek from Greg + Lupe’s beautiful maternity shoot!!
Isn’t Lupe stunning?!! They both looked fantastic, and I can’t wait to post more from their shoot!! The light was absolutely perfect!
I love this family! I always love when I can continue to photograph wedding clients as they start their family!! I photographed Ruben + Amanda’s wedding a few years back, and now they have two beautiful girls!! When they contacted me about a huge family photoshoot I was thrilled! The whole family was able to be together for the first time in years to celebrate Nathan’s graduation from Westmont…so it was the PERFECT time for a photoshoot!! We had a blast, and we all ended up making fools of ourselves trying to get each kid to laugh and smile!! I am so thankful for this wonderful family, and I am so happy with these beautiful photos!!
A sneak peek from yesterday’s amazing photoshoot! Such a fun and beautiful family!
I have SO many great pictures to post, so for now here are the grandkids and amazing grandparents! Can’t wait to post more!!
