Adventure Awaits | Wind Wolves Preserve, California
Paul and Stephanie’s courtship has been one amazing adventure! Their first date story is straight out of the movies. MANY crazy things went wrong during this first encounter such as Stephanie’s purse getting stolen and then there might have been some dumpster diving trying to find lost keys to Stephanie’s car. Yeah! Like I said LOTS of crazy things on only their first date. Yet one awesome thing went right…They had a blast together! -OPEN POST-

I never got to blog this amazing Engagement Session of Joseph and Haleigh so I thought I would back up and do it now! We didn’t get to do their special engagements until just a few days before their wedding! You see Joseph was in the Marines and wasn’t able to get leave until just days before their wedding. I am so glad we did this!
It makes my day when I hear groom’s say “That was actually fun!” MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! -OPEN POST-
Urban Engagement | Lodi, California
Two days after Christmas, I got to meet these two Floridians! They were in town for Christmas and did lots of wedding planning in their short visit to California. With an April Wedding date it was the only time to do their Engagement Session and I am so glad we were able to fit it in. Since it was still so close to Christmas it was fun to see the downtown all festive. This sunny yet chilly afternoon was fun getting to know Josh and Katie. Isn’t Katie’s outfit adorable?! -OPEN POST-
Winter Wonderland Engagement | Giant Sequioas
I am been soooo excited to blog this amazing session!!! So a couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of going on an adventure with Juan & Melissa. We had previously planned on going up the the Kings Canyon National Park for their fall time engagements all along the meadow of the Giant Sequoias. From the weather reports looked like rain was inevitable. But we decided to brave the weather anyways and get their session done before the busyness of Christmas came upon us.
Allied Arts Guild | Menlo Park, California
Last week, I had the pleasure of a day trip into Menlo Park, CA, with my honey, as my mom hung out with our kiddos during Thanksgiving break! What a fun trip with my man and a GORGEOUS place for an engagement session. The Allied Arts Guild is a beautiful, historic garden venue filled with amazing artist boutiques and specialized stores. It also host a cute little cafe as well as a Conference Center and Wedding venue. This is a fun spot to visit if you happen to be in the Stanford area. I highly recommend this little oasis from the city!
Rustic Country Engagement | Exeter, CA
Oh, these two love-birds are special! Michael and Brittany traveled up to my small town in Visalia, CA from the LA area. And I am so glad they did! I throughly enjoyed getting to know these two and showing them around my neck of the world. Their fun – loving banter had me in giggles!
These two met while taking an acting class in college. Brittany wasn’t Michael’s biggest fan at first. She didn’t appreciate his humor until after a friendship begin to blossom….over video games! Now they make each other laugh all the time. Their joy of being together is very evident as you will soon see.
Downtown Engagement | Visalia, CA
So excited for this sweet couple! Steven and Lauren’s big day is coming next week! The forecast was threatening rain for our early morning session. Luckily, the raindrops held off until after our morning together. Since they currently live in different states I was totally excited we could fit in an engagement session before their special day!
Disneyland | Anaheim, California
The day began with dark clouds, heavy rain, crazy thunder and oh yeah, there was also lighting, too! Our fun engagement session seemed to be in big trouble. One up side of wet weather in Disneyland is smaller crowds!!! That was very beneficial to us! Luckily as the morning progressed, the sun came out to play turning a gloomy morning into a beautiful, California day. Very thankful this spring day ended up being gorgeous! We all were able to relax and just enjoy the fun in Disneyland.
