Gosh I love these two! They have one of the best stories!
They’ve had a crush on each other since elementary school!! How crazy is that?! Cody transferred schools in fourth grade, and he noticed Amy right away. Over the next few years they got closer and closer as friends, started sitting by each other in every class, instant messaging each other till 3am! Then in high school Cody was the captain of the basketball team and Amy was the captain of the cheerleading squad, talk about the perfect high school set up! Their junior year they went on a double date and afterwards when they were walking on the beach Cody got down on one knee and asked her to be his girlfriend! Fast forward 8 years later, and Cody got back down on one knee and asked her to marry him! Their story seems like it’s straight out of a book, and when you meet them you know their love for each other is genuine and inspiring!

James and I were so excited to photograph the Cody’s surprise proposal to Amy a few months back, and we had an amazing time photographing their engagement session last weekend! Since the proposal was on a rooftop in downtown LA (dreamy, I know) we decided to do something entirely different for the engagement session! We headed up the mountain to Knapp’s Castle and it was incredible! The light was golden and gorgeous! While we were shooting a group of 30-40 people arrived so we had a bit of challenge shooting around them, but Cody and Amy were great and we successfully avoided the group and got some breath taking images! Enjoy!

Even though Isaac and Lynnsie are NOT engaged their love is just as evident as if they were! The way they love each other is so rare and inspiring, and they are perfect for each other in so many ways! Lynnsie is sweet, kind and angelic-like in her appearance, as well as her character and voice. Isaac is strong, masculine, and playful! He has an amazing ability to make people laugh, and he also has a fantastic voice and guitar abilities. The compliment each other so well, and just wait till you hear how their voices blend in perfect harmony. I get chills every time I hear them sing together!

I cannot wait to see how their love grows and strengthens as their relationship continues!! They are some of my favorite humans, and they are so near and dear to me and James. We are so thankful to call them friends!

Isaac and Lynnsie are not engaged, BUT they are so in LOVE!
They came to visit Santa Barbara to celebrate their one year anniversary of dating, and James and I couldn’t resist taking photos of their beautiful faces!
They have such an honest and beautiful love for each other, and they are so fun and playful! And Lynnsie is s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g!!! We had an incredible time taking pictures of them and we can’t wait to share more!!!

Tim and Jen have a great story of how hey ended up in Santa Barbara. They both lived in Washington DC and Tim was offered a job out in Santa Barbara. He decided to take the job and move to paradise, and he really wanted Jen to move out there with him!! Jen said the only way she would move cross country was if she had a job or an engagement ring….

Well…it wasn’t long before she visited Tim and they went kayaking out off the pier, and he proposed while they were kayaking!!! He even tied the ring to fishing line just in case it slipped. (such a smart move Tim!!)
After the proposal Jen packed up and moved out here to beautiful Santa Barbara and started planning the wedding!

We had such a fun time on the engagement session and we did it right by where Tim proposed! Such a fun shoot, with perfect sunshine and another beautiful winter day in paradise!

sneak peek from Tim and Jen’s  beautiful Santa Barbara beach engagement session yesterday!

It’s pretty crazy that this is what winter looks like here. I guess it’s clear why they call it paradise!

Words cannot express how much I love these two. They are prefect for each other in every way. Kelly is absolutely stunning from the inside out, she’s an outrageous dancer, a true fashionista, and one of the greatest friends I will ever have! When Brian started coming around I knew there was something special about him, because he was the only man I’ve ever known who could out-quote Kelly on SNL and Kristin Wiig impressions! And to top it off he’s handsome, hilarious and a Fire Fighter! Yes please! Talk about a match made in heaven! Plus the story of how Brian pursued Kelly is mind blowing! He knew exactly what he wanted and he would stop at nothing! They were dating long distance for a year, and Brian bought the ring before Kelly even moved out there! He held onto it for months for 3 months before he proposed, and somehow Kelly’s family kept it a secret from her the entire time! When he did propose, before he pulled out the ring, he pulled out a framed dried flower that he had kept since sophmore year when he asked Kelly to a dance. He said he watched the flower fall out of her hair and he picked it up and kept it in his journal until he was ready to propose! Talk about romantic and thoughtful! It gets me teary eyed every time I think about it! Kelly you’ve got yourself a good one, and Brian is so lucky to have you too! I couldn’t be happier for these two and I am SO excited to photograph their wedding this summer! I already know I am going to cry tears of joy during the ceremony, and I know the dance floor is going to be epic!

Every time I’ve done a photoshoot with Kelly (senior portrait, family, etc.) we always take a few together. So we had to keep with tradition.
The top right is definitely my favorite:

They have a beautiful, honest and playful love for each other that shows in everything they do! James and I had an incredible time photographing their wedding and we were so blessed to see the love of the Lord so clearly in their marriage! Congrats!!

It was love at first sight. They spotted me because of my fabulous tan leather boots that just so happened to match their own. Instafriends.

If I could describe them in three words I would say Fun, Wonderful, and Awesome.

Although I could not pick a favorite part of the shoot, the moment they offered my assistant and I Big League Chew I knew it was meant to be.

Andy and Rachel, it was an absolute pleasure to spend the afternoon getting to know you and I am super excited to photograph your wedding in La Jolla!!
