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!

Jerry and Desiree – Engagement Photos, Ojai, California

Its been super fun getting to know Jerry and Desiree. For their engagment session, we jumped in our car and drove up Highway 33 past Ojai and stopped whenever we saw pretty things, which was basically everywhere. Their laughter and joy was contagious and we are so excited we get to see them tie the knot this summer. Happy viewing!

Mike and Jenny – Engagement Photos, Scary Dairy, Camarillo, CA

Mike and Jenny are what you might call rad. They asked us if we’d be down to do their engagement photos at Scary Dairy – a place that is infamously haunted and generally really cool and freaky looking. We obviously said yes. Although we didn’t see any paranormal activity, Mike and Jenny seem to be abnormally in love with each other…if that’s a thing. Anyway, here’s Mike and Jenny exploring the unknown. We can’t wait for their wedding in January!

Brian and Amanda – Engagement Session, The Stonehaus Winery, Westlake Village, California

Brian and Amanda were a blast to spend the afternoon with. They’re both extremely in love and fun to hangout with. One of the huge perks of this job is making new friends like these two. For their engagement session, we decided to start out at the location of their first date: Stonehaus Winery and Vineyards. We drank some seriously tasty wine and basked in the sunshine. We ended up the afternoon exploring the hills in the gathering dusk. Much laughter and enjoyment ensued. Good times if you ask me.

Fred and Whitney: Engagement Photos, Malibu Creek, CA

This here is one of those classic examples of true love. Fred and Whitney are the real deal and they’re going to seal that deal. We had a great time exploring Malibu creek and witnessed a sunset that could well be described as “extreme.” It’s a good thing this isn’t the last time we’re going to have these two in front of our cameras.

Kyle and Kelly: engagement photos, Avalon, Catalina Island, CA

The day we spent with Kelly and Kyle on Catalina Island goes down in the books as one of the most epic engagement sessions we’ve ever done. Catalina is about an hour by boat from Los Angeles but feels like a world away. Kyle grew up on the island and Kelly has family from there as well…crazy coincidence since there’s only about four thousand people on the island. Clearly they were meant to find each other.

Kyle’s parents picked us up in their awesome 1960s Volkswagon bus and drove us all over the island on roads that are only accessible to locals. When we got to the other side of the island, we watched a tall ship (or a pirate ship according to Emily) anchor as the last bit of sunlight streamed through the low clouds and made dazzling patterns on the Pacific. Magic.

We can’t wait to get our film back from this shoot and will probably be sharing more photos once we do. Also soon to come: Kelly and Kyle’s intimate wedding on a Malibu mountaintop!
