Underwater Engagement Session – |Gaby + Khari|

This is a special one. Gaby and Khari met when they were only 13 years old. One week later, Gaby, an avid competitive swimmer, jumped in to the shallow end of a pool head first and her whole world changed. Her new friend Khari spent time with her in the hospital. They kept in touch off and on over the next couple years while Gaby was adjusting to life in a wheelchair. When Gaby needed a date to her senior prom, she remembered the cute boy who was there for her through a rough time. They have been together ever since! They are getting married TODAY at a beach in Malibu.

Gaby and Khari are so sweet together. Gaby is still in her wheelchair most of the time but as an incomplete quadriplegic she is able to stand and even walk with lots of help. Help that Khari is happy to provide. As I mentioned, Gaby is an avid swimmer and still is. They do weekly pool therapy so it was only natural to end their engagement session in their very own pool! It was my first time shooting an engagement session in a pool but I’m so thrilled to share that with these two. I couldn’t think of a better suited couple. I’m so excited to photograph their wedding today.

Portland Engagement Session – |Melodee + Ryan|

Ryan is the head brewer for Barrel Mountain Brewery in Battle Ground, WA so I was stoked to be able to start the engagement session on his home turf with a beer! Jason and I had a blast going all over Vancouver and Portland with these two – always with a beer in our hands!

Long Beach Engagement Session – |Drew + Samantha|

Samantha + Drew live in Arizona but came back to So Cal for their engagement session with me. We met in Sam’s hometown of Long Beach and I found some new awesome areas I didn’t know existed! Like, who had any idea there was a rad lighthouse right near downtown!? Too cool. I simply cannot wait to see these two again at their wedding in March!

Balboa Park Morning Engagement Session – |Alejandra + Matt|

I’m always happy when a client is up for a morning session, especially in a crowded spot like Balboa Park! There’s something magical about having the whole place virtually to ourselves! And of course we had to include their adorable fur-baby! I met Ale when she was in a wedding I photographed a few years back and was so excited to get to know them better! Their wedding is coming up fast – just over a month!

Oceanside Engagement Session – |Kristina + Dylan|

Kristina wanted to her engagement shoot to be done at a Mission and suggest the one in Oceanside – which happens to be walking distance to my house! Perfect! I haven’t shot there for years and even discovered new parts! Such a cool property. We headed down to the beach for the most perfect golden light at sunset!
