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!!
Abraham and Diana are so cute! They have a playful and honest love for each other! James and I were honored to photogrpah their beautiful engagement session! We both just love the way they look at each other! It is so special, and makes our hearts so happy! We had initially scheduled their sesison for a weekend when it rained, and we are so excited we rescheduled because we got some of the greenest scenery, and gorgeous golden light for their shoot! It was kinda perfect! We are so excited for these two and can’t wait for them to tie the knot!
Isaac + Anna have such an honest and beautiful love for each other! They live up in northern California and we were so excited when they said they want to do their engagement shoot in Santa Barbara and include some of the top spots in SB! We started at Muni Wine in the Funk Zone, then headed over to the Santa Barbara Mission, and then we played around and danced in the harbor and then we took off our shoes and ran and skipped on the beach just in time for sunset! It was a perfect day and a dream of a photoshoot!! We are so excited for these two and we can’t wait for their wedding in Napa this fall!!
James and I are so excited to be featured on Something Turquoise today!!
