Golden Gate Bridge , San Francisco engagement shoot

Jenna and Mike met on the east coast where they both lived but decided to have their wedding in San Francisco, California. Jenna grew up there so it felt right to have all their family meet in this beautiful city. For their San Francisco engagement photos we hit up one of the most iconic landmarks in the city, the Golden Gate Bridge. It glowed in the back of Crissy fields as the sun set behind it.

Playful Laguna Beach Couple shoot

Lindsey and Shaun have one of the realist love I’ve ever witnessed. They are also the most strong couple I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know and photograph. I won’t get top into it but Shaun had a brain tumor removed two weeks after this shoot and it wasn’t the first time he’s dealt with one. These two are great examples of what it’s like to be someone’s rock. Although they have been through a lot together they always say they come out so much stronger as a unit and it’s the most inspiring love story. I’m so glad we did this session to get their minds off of what was to come. They are absolutely obsessed with each other and it was such a pleasure to capture their authentic love on the beaches of Laguna Beach

Winter Engagement shoot in Joshua Tree National Park

Dana and Bobby chose Joshua Tree National Park for the engagement shoot location. We drove out there last week and expected the temperatures to be relatively cold but were surprised to find it to be freezing! It was windy and had previously rained the few days before. We drove in and headed to Quail springs to start shooting. I always love how shoots turn out in Joshua Tree so this day was no different. The clouds brought the perfect lighting and their outfits were on point. I had them cuddle up to stay warm as the wind ripped through the desert. I love windy days because it always makes for drama in photos! Dana and bobby were such troopers and trusted me that the freezing temperatures would all be worth it for the photos.

Waimanalo beach, Oahu Hawaii engagement photos

In July I had the pleasure of flying to Hawaii for Rochelle and Pei’s engagement photo weekend. We stayed at a rental house right on the beach in Waimanalo. The first engagement shoot of the weekend was right on the sand outside our house. This shoot got them all warmed up for a weekend of engagement shoots. The next morning we woke up super early to shoot in the water. The sun made an appearance and make all the beautiful Hawaii colors come to life. These two splashed around and made out on a paddle board, it was amazing! After a dip in the ocean we hopped into our rental jeep and coasted down the Kalanianole Highway till we got to Hanauma Bay. We shot down on the rocks and it looked like a different world. It was incredible!

Jacqui & Shea Seattle Engagement session

I’ve always been obsessed with the moody Washington coast so when Jacqui & Shea asked me to come to Seattle for their engagement session, I was over the moon. We planned to meetup at the Discovery Park on the Seattle coast and it was freezing! We shot down by the water and their cute puppies made an appearance in some of their engagement photos. When we got about half way through the shoot, the sun burst out of the clouds and we got a take of Seattle’s golden hour. It was so beautiful!
