Patty and John: Engagement Photos, Ventura, California

Patty and John are pretty special. They're the type of people that once you've met them, you feel like you've been friends with them for years. When we first hungout with them to see if we were a good fit for their wedding, we spent the first hour and half talking about traveling and various adventures. We instantly connected with them and knew that this could be the start of a great relationship. The rest is "history" as they say. A couple weeks ago Patty and John took us up into the hills of Ventura to check out their wedding location and have a picnic. After some killer food and some even more delicious champagne, we walked around the sun drenched hills with their dogs and generally had a good ol' fashioned time. We seriously can't wait for their wedding!

Randy and Allie: Engagement Photos, Fullerton Airport, Cessna, Flying, Catalina Island

When Randy and Allie asked if we wanted to fly to Catalina and back for their engagement photos, we were like, "mmm nah, that doesn't sound very fun." .......Not. Actually, they had no idea they'd be fulfilling a long time photographic dream of ours. Hanging out with Randy and Allie couldn't have been more laid back and enjoyable. We met them for a great lunch and then soared through the sky thanks to Randy's awesome skills. 

Grace and Brandon: Engagement Photos, Westlake, California

Can it be possible that frolicking in the green grass in the shadow of the mountains could really be our job? It seems pretty crazy to us but, we'll take it. We never made it to our final destination with Grace and Brandon. Stopping at a spontaneous location off the side of the road was definitely the right decision and we couldn't be happier with the results. The hills in Southern California are so green and lush right now it felt like we were in Scotland or something. Grace and Brandon were so fun to hangout with and we're so thankful that they trusted us enough to follow us deep into the hills in search of rad photographic material.

Casey and Megan - Engagement Photos, Montecito, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria

So these photos you are about to look at are of Casey and Megan. This is a really special one for me. Megan is one of my oldest friends and I couldn't be happier that she found Casey and is getting married. They're such a rad couple and are going to do great things together. We spent the afternoon exploring a magical forest then ended the evening watching the sunset. Kind of a normal day for Emily and I but it's fun to bring some other people along ;) Anyway, we can't wait for Casey and Megan's wedding!

Ryan and Amanda - Engagement Photos, Ace Hotel, Palm Springs, Botanical gardens

There's just something about being in the desert. All that open space. The quiet. The otherworldly landscape is seriously inspiring. When Ryan and Amanda told us that they wanted to do their engagement session in Palm Springs we freaked out a little bit. Palm Springs is one of favorite places and we couldn't have been more excited. We met them at the Ace Hotel (our normal haunt when we're in town) for a day of exploring and good times. Ryan and Amanda were so fun to hangout with and we had a great time showing them around one of our favorite towns. We can't wait for their wedding later this year!
