Briana + Ian | Manzanita Beach Engagement Session

When Briana first reached out to us about the possibility of Adam and I being their wedding photographers, I was over the moon. Through social media I had seen that they'd gotten engaged and wanted to reach out, but decided not to be a creeper (it was a close call).

Ever since sharing a glass of wine and listening to their hilarious stories we just knew they were going to be amazing to work with!

Brittany+Brandon: San Clemente Engagement Session

We had such a fun time shooting Brittany and Brandon's San Clemente engagement session! They picked the site of the San Clemente casino and one of Brandon's favorite surf spots. The overcast sky was perfect for being able to shoot wherever we wanted. And the location was awesome for creating these beautiful images. All their smiles and laughter show just how much they enjoy each other. They are so laid back and easy to be around. It felt like we were just hanging out with a couple friends! We are so excited to be the ones capturing your wedding. It's going to be beautiful and perfect!

Tiffani + Christopher - Long Beach Engagement Session

Meet Tiffani and Christopher! We had a bit of an overcast day to work with, but at least it wasn't raining! We chose Shoreline Aquatic Park for their Long Beach engagement session and it turned out perfect. It's a tiny park with a lot of variety! Tiffani and Christopher are a beautiful couple with an obviously steadfast love. They met in school and it was game over for these two. Found out at the engagement session that they are already technically hitched (couldn't wait another second!), and the wedding we're shooting for them in July will be the 2nd go round - Let the celebration continue!! They were a pleasure to work with and basically convinced me that we're moving to that side of town. Can't wait for the SECOND big day you guys!!

Thought this was hilarious! "Okay Christopher, I'm going to have you wrap your arms around Tiffani's shoulders. Uhm, not in a headlock..." Someone is obviously a wrestler!

Devin + Erik: Crystal Cove Engagement Session

We met Devin and Erik at Crystal Cove State Park for their engagement session and they did fantastic! Laughing and goofing around the whole time! The trail leading down to the beach was beautiful. We were having them stand in the middle of the path and somehow that turned into an impromptu dance session. Loved it! They're such a cute, genuine couple! Made for a fabulous engagement session! 2013-03-24_0012013-03-24_002 2013-03-24_003 2013-03-24_004 2013-03-24_005 2013-03-24_006 2013-03-24_007

Love the shots we got on this hidden little staircase!! Had a hard time picking some favorites... so I picked a bunch! The light coming through the trees is just lovely!

You can't tell in these shots... but between the first and second shot, Devon chucked her shoes at her husband to be. Hence all the laughter! :)

Ami + Doug: Balboa Island Engagement Session

Screen Shot 2013-02-15 at 1.25.31 PM

This engagement session started out with Ami and Doug on the mainland, and Adam and I on Balboa Island (whoops! our bad!) - at least we got to ride the ferry! We had a blast with these two. They have such fun loving personalities that perfectly compliment each other. Doug was even the one who came up with the idea of using a heart sucker as a prop. So fun and spontaneous. They were great following along as we hiked all over the place, and so impressed with Ami's grace in those cute teal wedges! All in all it was a perfect day for an engagement session, and with such a lovely couple... perfection! We are so happy for you two and cannot wait for the big day! It's coming up so fast!! <3

I declined the ferris wheel ride, but am so glad Adam jumped at the opportunity. These images are so cute!!

Did I say fun loving? Yep, they are absolutely perfect for each other!

Doug, mister spontaneous, decided to grab a cute little 25 cent ring and recreate the proposal. LOVE IT!

Meredyth+Ryan: Balboa Peninsula Engagement Session

Adam and I first sat down with Meredyth back in January and were impressed with how on top of things she was. She knew all the right questions to ask and what she wanted from her photographer. We finally got to meet Ryan for their engagement session and could tell from the minute they were walking up that they were truly in love! The way they were looking at each other spoke volumes! We decided to shoot on Balboa Peninsula and got some fantastic images! They were both so laid back and wonderful to work with. Meredyth & Ryan, congratulations on your engagement! We wish you the absolute best!  

Love a good engagement session piggy back ride! So cute!

Well hello Gorgeous! What a beautiful, joyful smile!

Love this! Just a romantic walk on the beach with your husband-to-be.
