michelle + josh: coastal, cliffside kind of romance in northern california, engagement session

Weddings & Engagement
August 3, 2017

michelle + josh live on the east coast but are getting married in california next year. since michelle’s family still lives in northern california + they are busy traveling back and forth with summer + wedding planning trips they thought it would be perfect to do some photos to celebrate their engagement. i couldn’t have been more thrilled to tag along + get to know this fun-loving duo.

we shot at slide ranch + the muir overlook just north of san francisco. the serenity along the cliffs was so soothing. jokingly we mentioned how i need to photoshop whales in the background. not five minutes later we saw some real ones along the shoreline! we enjoyed chatting + whale watching + television show talk. michelle was super adventurous + hiked all the way down in heels. props.

we had a good time,

they shine.

Rachel + Nick: Half Moon Bay Engagement Session
This is the day that the rain was kind. It was ominous all week + all morning before I headed up to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve just above Half Moon Bay to shoot Rachel + Nick's engagement photos. Typically, the rain is always welcome in my book but we really hoped it would clear up for this shoot so we could have a bit of variety. The afternoon was crystal clear, even with a bonus touch of sunshine. The Reserve had all kinds of beautiful areas to use as our backdrop. Rachel and I immediately bonded on our mutual affection for Anthropologie. It was so fun watching these two just play. They are such kids at heart + so crazy in love. Ca ...

kurtis + nicole: destination elopement at jardin du luxembourg in paris, france
This is the ultimate 'Screw it! Let's elope to Paris' story -- I love every little bit of it. After the decision to ditch wedding plans in Vancouver, this couple packed their bags and ventured to the city of love. Their last visit was a proposal in the gardens right by the Eiffel Tower, this visit was to make it official and tie the knot. Getting ready took place at the Hotel LA Belle Juliette as did a celebration toast. The ceremony spot was overlooking the palace and blooming gardens at Luxembourg in the 6th.
