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!

About a year ago we ran into Chris while shopping in Santa Barbara and he told us all about Holly! He told us how wonderful she is, and how he knew she was the one and he was preparing to propose soon! We were thrilled and couldn’t wait to see how he would ask. Chris always has creative ideas and his proposal plan was nothing short of epic! He proposed while on a hot air balloon ride, and got the whole thing on video, talk about dreamy?!  Chris + Holly are such a cute couple, and their wedding was beautiful and filled with vintage classic details! Just wait till you see her dress, it’s gorgeous! We are so excited to share a few from their special day!

Moments like this are part of the reason we love wedding photography! In lieu of a bouquet toss Holly had an anniversary dance. Knowing her grandparents would win, she gave her bouquet to her grandma at the end of the dance! As we saw their embrace we started to get teary eyed. This was taken right as she gave her the bouquet, and you can see the love on their faces! Hugs from grandma are always the best, and moments like this will continue to be told told for generations to come!

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!

We are thrilled to share this engagement session! Chris and Sadie are high school sweethearts, and they are are so cute! They have been together for ten years and through high school, college, and long distance they grew stronger and more in love! When Sadie told us she wanted to do their engagement shoot in the city where where they first met, we fell in love with the idea! James and I explored Claremont before the shoot and we couldn’t believe how much it reminded us of the east coast, with brick buildings, gorgeous architecture, and beautiful trees! At one point we even had them dance in the middle of the road because it was breathtaking and the street was empty! We had a blast with these two and we can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Claremont, high school sweethearts,

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!

We met Sabrina and her mother a year ago, and as we heard the plans and details for the wedding day we couldn’t stop smiling! We listened as she told us of her ideas for a fall wedding at a gorgeous Villa in the hills overlooking all of Santa Barbara, and we started dreaming of their special day. October couldn’t come soon enough! When the day arrived it was everything we could have imagined and better! The venue was a dream come true, with a spectacular view, and gorgeous backdrops everywhere we turned! When we walked into the room where the girls were getting ready and saw Sabrina’s details, we thought we were in heaven! Marc Jacobs ivory and navy heels, j’adore perfume, and a stunning couture gown by Amsale! This bride has some serious style! (James and I both told said “I’m obsessed with her dress” at least a half a dozen times!) Then the florals arrived, and La Fleur du Jour perfectly crafted the bouquets! They were a gorgeous mix of fall colors, and they even had red and orange leaves mixed in! Just when we thought the day couldn’t be any more photogenic, six oversized balloons arrived in gold and wine colors! From beginning to end, the day was full of celebration, and capturing their day was a dream!

Ron and Sabrina, your kindness overflows onto everyone you meet. From the second we saw you together we experienced the  beautiful love you have for each other! James and I smiled as we photographed your first look, and we loved how you continued to bring each other joy as the day passed. We had a fantastic time photographing your incredible wedding and we are so excited to share a few favorites of your day!
