Oh how I love these two! Their proposal was perfect and their engagement shoot was straight out of a dream! They are crazy in love and the way they look at each other melts my heart! They are playful and super fun and easy to be around, but they also have such a beautiful and honest love for each other that is so clear in the way they interact! It has been a blessing and privilege to watch their love grow for each other, and we are so excited for their wedding in Malibu this summer!! And for those of you who are wondering, Hannah’s fabulous red dress is made by For Love & Lemons

David and Jenise are an incredible couple! They are both school teachers and love everything about the ocean! They are playful and silly and David kept quoting and singing lines from songs during the shoot that made me and James crack up! One of the most incredible things about their relationship is how they have so much fun with each other and they also care so deeply for each other! You can see it by how they look at each other! They are so in love!
James and I loved getting to know more about them during their engagmenet shoot, and we even had a little tree frog join us for part of the shoot! How cool is that?!
We are SO excited for these two to tie the knot this summer and we can’t wait to photograph their wedding!!
How cute is this tree frog that joined us for a photo:

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!!
