engagement photoshoot

Griffith Observatory Sunrise Engagement Session

Sunrise is the perfect time to visit the Griffith Observatory because:
1. wayyy less crowded
2. free parking before they open
3. THE MOST MAGICAL GOLDEN LIGHT

See below for photographic proof of number 3.

Malibu Engagement Session - Sarah + Connor

Even though our original location didn’t work out for Connor and Sarah’s engagement session, these are still some of my favorite photos ever! Besides the obvious fact that they’re a very good looking couple, they are both super chill and fun, which made photographing them so easy! I loved that we got to include their dog, Gaia, who is like a child to them, in some photos as well! (For any future clients - YES, you can always always bring your fur babies!)

Can’t wait for part 2 of their session in the spring!

Azusa Canyon Engagement Session | Ashley + Chris | California Wedding Photographer

Ashley and Chris are such a sweet couple and I feel so blessed that I get to work with them!! Their engagement session was so fun and considering we couldn’t find a bathroom on the way to the location, I’m honestly surprised no one peed their pants with all the laughing we did hahaha. So excited for their wedding in March!

Peyton + Kalyl - Franklin Canyon Couples Shoot

Hey you, thanks for reading my blog!! I don't normally start out my blogs like this but I'm doing an experiment to see how many people actually read these things hahaha. SOO when you finish scrolling through these photos, give the post a "like" (it doesn't tell me who the likes are from, just how many, so don't worry I won't know who you are) and if you're coming from IG and don't mind revealing your identity, comment a BEAR emoji on my last post to let me know you saw this! 

Anyways, thanks for playing along, now here's what I have to say about the photoshoot this post is actually for: 

It's one of my favorites. Like I'm very much obsessed with how cute these two are together! I also have all the heart eyes for this location. Just look at that golden grass, the lake, and those awesome freaking trees all over the place. AND I GUESS we can talk about that sunset too!! Creeping through the trees all warm and cozy like God shining his love right down on us. Okay idk if that analogy works but whatever. You get the point. It was an awesome sunset that made me squeal a little. Scroll down to see some of my very favorite photos I've ever taken.

Mason + Miranda - Point Dume Proposal

Okay, so ANOTHER proposal story. I hope you guys like these because they're my favorite!! These two are from Minnesota and Mason surprised Miranda with tickets to Malibu the day before he planned to propose at this rad location. Obviously she didn't know about the proposal part, but she found out soon enough ;) 

I had never been to Point Dume before and I usually hate shooting in the middle of the day (sorry I love my golden hour) so I was a little nervous about finding a good spot that wasn't crowded and if the light was going to be too harsh BUT everything turned out pretty perfect in the end. I got there early to scope things out, decided this spot on the edge of the cliff would be awesome and Mason was down for the idea, so I just waited for them to show up! 

Once at the spot, Mason asked someone for a cell phone photo of the two of them and after a quick snap he got down on one knee and you know how the rest goes... (hint: she said YES). Scroll down to see the photos!

Matt + Wendy - El Matador Beach Proposal

I've been trying to write this blog for like two days and I've decided that Wendy did a much better job of explaining the story than I can LOL.

Basically, Matt planned this "photoshoot" for Wendy that would eventually turn into an engagement session after he surprised her by jumping in during the shoot and PROPOSING. It was really fun to be a part of the surprise even though I was nervous about giving it away the whole time haha. Scroll down to see some of the photos!!
