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!
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!
Sean + Olivia are so cute and playful! We just love the way they look at each other! We connected from the second we met, and James and I are so glad we got to photograph them while they were in town for Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to photograph their wedding in August, and for now here are a few of our favorites from the engagement shoot!
Proposals are so fun! The anticipation and anxious excitement create some of the most incredible emotions we get to photograph!
When Felix told us of his plans to propose at Santa Claus Beach we couldn’t wait to hide and capture the proposal! When the day came James and I hid on opposite ends of the beach and watched and waited for the moment!
Felix and Shelby arrived in style in a VW Bus and walked into the beach and set up chairs and blankets and started to drink classic coke and play cribbage. This was a normal weekday evening activity, so Shelby had no idea what was about to happen! (Well done Felix!) While we were hiding I turned around and saw her family hiding right behind me, and I got even more excited! We waited with excitement and a few minutes later I received a text asking when the light was best for the proposal, and since we were all in position and the golden light was absolutely perfect I said “it’s ideal right now!!” Felix stood up and asked Shelby to join him. As he dropped to one knee, I could hear happy tears and sniffles coming from the family behind me! Shelby’s reaction was precious, and when her family ran out and surprised her I started to cry happy tears too! Felix + Shelby we are thrilled for your engagement and loved capturing your special moment! Cheers!
These two are so cute! Eddie and Maggie met at the beginning of freshman year at UCSB and they’ve been best friends ever since! Everytime James and I get to photograph a couple who are best friends with each other, we are thrilled! It was a joy to watch them laugh with each other throughout the shoot, and we are so excited for their wedding in Spring! Also, I’m obsessed with her yellow diamond, well done Eddie!
Oh how we loved this engagement shoot! Cory and Kara are clearly so in love, and watching the way they look at each other and make each other laugh melted our hearts! Their joy is contagious and as you can see they are stunning together and make such a cute couple! James and I are so excited to share this wonderful couple’s engagement photos and we can’t wait to shoot their summer wedding at the Canary Hotel!
