Newly Engaged Couples
Carrie & Josh
October 12, 2017
10/12/2017 | Private Residence
Exactly from 1 year when we took these engagement photos, Carrie and Josh will be tying the knot at Darlington House in La Jolla! What better way to celebrate exactly 1 year before you get married than with an engagement session. We got to spend the evening getting to know and photographing Carrie and Josh. This couple is beaming with love and positive vibes. Their laughs are so contagious, Yaneck and I definitely got a great ab work out with these two. Also during Carrie's and Josh's engagement session, new nicknames were born like "chocolate-chocolate stud muffin."
The reason behind choosing spots like Rare Form, Fairweather and The Blind Burro was because we revisited the places Carrie and Josh first met. Believe it or not, they met on New Years Eve and we love everything about their story. Having an engagement session with locations close to the heart makes the photos that much more meaningful. We love that Carrie made the time to plan both her and Josh's outfit and made an appointment to get her hair and makeup done. She was a blonde bombshell last night!
We wanted an epic sunset photo at the rooftop of The Nolen, but they were filing a documentary and the place was packed. Instead, we rushed over to our studio rooftop which offers unique views and 0 people. Capturing and enjoying the sunset with Carrie and Josh was a treat. We hope the photos speak for themselves and you can see the incredible personalities stud muffin and Carrie have.

With gorgeous props like red balloons, scrabble tiles, a picture frame, a "Love" sign with lights- this engagement shoot was romantic, colorful and whimsical. There will multiple locations and outfit changes (including a gorgeous red/gold/black traditional Indian sari) . The perfect conclusion to this special couple's shoot was sparklers after the sun set.

Kasey & Andria

THESE TWO!!! I can't get enough of them. Kasey surprised Andria with the ultimate proposal! Andria had no clue and it went so smooth... all that planning really paid off for Kasey! I'm super honored to have been chosen to document this moment in their lives. The love between these two is just immediately noticeable. They travelled all the way from North Carolina and I am so happy they did. Kasey is in the military and Andria is an accountant. I know they would love to be featured... I hope you enjoy these photos! I know I do and I loved taking them.

Nicole & Kyle
August 13, 2017
It was a gorgeous morning in Napa Valley, CA, where the sun shined amidst the grapevines at the peak of harvest season. Nicole was celebrating her Birthday weekend, a whole trip that she had planned with Kyle and close friends. On the very last day of their trip (Nicole's 30th Birthday) little did she know that Kyle had devised an intricate plan of his own. As part of his scheme, his cousin, who happens to be a professional photographer, had asked them to model for some pictures in between the grape vines with the beautiful Tuscan inspired Castle de Amorosa in the background. Kyle took her hands, leaned in for a kiss, then nervously started shaking as he mumbled his sweet little speech. The next thing she knew, he was down on one knee, asking “Will you marry me?” So full of excitement and surprise, she finally said YES! to the Prince of her dreams.
Katy & Jamie
August 4, 2017
Jamie planned a special proposal in the sierras. The year was Jamie’s “Golden Birthday” (he turned 30 years old on July 30th). They decided this was the year that they would coordinate with all of their friends and family to go camping to this special place he has celebrated every birthday over the last 30 years! They planned for months and had over 40 people be there to celebrate for a full week! On the last afternoon, they were there on the lake, filming themselves paddle boarding with his Go Pro drone. They paddled out to the middle of the lake where he set up the Go Pro drone to circle them. After a couple times of it circling he said, “Katy! Look! It’s right behind you! Turn around and wave at the camera!” She turned around to wave, and when she turned back around, he was on one knee on his paddle board holding a ring in his hand and said, "Will you marry me Katy?” Their parents were in kayaks and on the shore cheering. When they paddled into shore, Jamie’s Mom had bought the ONLY bottle of champagne at the local camp market and they popped it and celebrated right there on the beach!
