Denver Engagement Session – |Amanda + Matt|

Oh I’m so excited to share these! I met Amanda on a local photographer’s Facebook group. We had chatted quite a bit about our own wedding planning and our unique details (can’t give away too much before the big day!) Little did I know that I would get to meet her for the first time (and her very sweet fiance Matt) at their engagement shoot in Denver! And the next time I see them will be their August wedding! We had a total blast exploring downtown Denver, chatting about beer, photography and just about everything else! It’s always nerve-wracking to photograph another photographer but Amanda was so sweet and complimentary – especially when she saw their photos. I can’t wait to hang out with these two again very soon!

Encinitas Engagement Session – |Shannon + Mike|

A little over two years ago, a boisterous chick with bright pink lipstick shimmied her way over to our table. I was taken with her immediately. A chance meeting the following day at a Tristan Prettyman concert sealed our #instantbff friendship. I’m thrilled to stand up next to her in her wedding to Mike in August.  Mike is the yang to her yin. The peanut butter to hear brightly colored jelly. They could not be more different yet a more perfect match. I won’t be able to photograph their wedding (Go Pro in my bouquet maybe?) but I was thrilled to take their engagement photos! We stuck close to where they live and ended at the beach where Mike proposed!

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!
