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.

Looking back at the photos I can't help but be in awe of the beautiful sky that day. Wide Open spaces and Wedding Day bliss. The Bridal Party was an absolute riot, in the best possible way. Proof is in their epic shots. We shoot weddings all over California and the world, find out more here.

pris + kenneth: flying birds + laughing till our sides hurt, an eiffel tower morning in paris, france engagement session
i got an inquiry a few months back from a sweet young lady who had found my sunflower provence post online + wanted to do a dual engagement session in provence + paris, france. naturally, i was onboard. as we corresponded back + forth we seemed to mesh very well, when we met in person it was like meeting an old friend, when we said goodbye we tearfully embraced before parting ways. i love connecting with my couples, its an important aspect of my job but this one was different. kenneth, the groom-to-be, noticed we had the exact same laugh. by the end of it all, we were convinced that we were sisters separated at birth :) the three ...
