David + Brynley | Couples Session | Los Osos, Ca

I remember the second I talked to Brynley on the phone, she was in Alaska being cold and I was in shorts and flip flops driving south on the 101. I instantly loved her and her spirit. We chatted and laughed as I sat in LA traffic and planned her whole session. Her husband got it for her for the holiday's. They never really got wedding photos so a professional photography session was his gift to her. :::swoon::: 

We started out at the Oak Grove in Los Osos and then headed to MDO for sunset. It was pure magic. 

Here are just a few of my favorites from their session!

Annette + Victor | Engaged | Avila Beach, CA

Where do I even begin with these two! We had so much fun wondering the streets of Avila Beach on Monday, Annette looked stunning as ever and Victor kept the laughs going the whole time. I can't wait for their wedding in Nipomo later this year!!!

Here are a few favorites from their shoot!

Kyle & Kim | Engaged | Los Alamos, CA

Where do I even being with this wonderful day!!! We have been having some very odd weather here on the central coast lately and the week prior to Kyle and Kim's engagement session it had been so windy I was worried...

When Saturday arrived it was so beautiful, it was a warm 80 degrees with zero wind!!!

We started our session in Los Alamos, CA and ended it on the backroads of Santa Maria. We walked all around town and even stopped for a beer and some live music! I'm really blessed to be able to do what I do and meet the amazing people I do!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day, I know their wedding in Georgia this fall will be amazing!

Enjoy.

John + Shelley | Engaged | Estero Bay, CA

I loved this session so much, it's hard to sit here and just pick a couple key points.

John and Shelley came down from way Northern CA to have their engagement photos done on the beautiful central coast, it really complimented their style and personality.

I really enjoy it when couples bring their dog along, and theirs was no exception. She was such a good listener and even posed for some photos, but not before giving her Mom and Dad a big kiss. LOL.

I can't wait for John and Shelley's wedding at Tiber Canyon next year!

Here are a couple of my favs from their session.

Bryan + Jordan | Engaged | San Luis Obispo

Jordan and I had been trying to think of locations to do her engagement photos for a couple weeks. We finally picked a place, I had made arrangements and at the last second it fell through, so what do you do? You get lost on the back roads of SLO County! We ended up shooting for over two hours and had so much fun!

I can't wait for their wedding next year!

Here are just a few of my favorites from that day.

Clay + Kelsey | Engaged | Central Coast, CA

Where do i even being with this session! I arrived on location with a glass of champagne waiting for me (did I mention I love my job?!) we loaded up into Clay's truck and off we went into the back areas of Laetitia Winery.  We dove all around and had a blast!

Next we were off the beach to chase the sunset, literally. Luckily we caught it.

I can't wait for Clay and Kelsey's wedding in November at The Grace Maralyn Estate & Gardens !

Here are some of my favs from their engagement session.

Chris + Amy | Engaged | Orcutt, CA

When Amy first contacted me about shooting her wedding this October, and told me she was having a rice krispie wedding cake I instantly knew I liked her.

Chris and Amy have this unspoken chemistry that I'm so glad I was able to capture. They really complete each other and are so much fun! 

My favorite moment of their engagement session was....can you guess? The horse heads! FUN!

Here are some of my favorite shots from their session.

Enjoy!


Javi + Sharee | Engaged | Templeton, CA

I was there when Javi got down on one knee and asked Sharee to be his bride, I was so thankful to be able to capture that moment, I knew that their engagement session would be so much fun!

Their big day will take place at Home Sweet Home Cottage and Ranch in Templeton, CA. When Sharee told me that she wanted to do their engagement photos there was I was beyond excited. I hadn't been to this amazing venue yet so it was a great opportunity to shoot there and get to see all the beautiful nooks and crannies before their big day!

Here are some favorites from their session.

Enjoy!

 

Jesus + Antoinette | Engaged | Montana De Oro

This engagement session was beyond fun. The original plan was to go down to Spooners Cove in MDO and shoot around the rocks. Well on a whim we started walking down this random trail and this is what we found!

These two were up for anything, including going into the water! It's so much fun when couples give me creative control. We laughed the entire session. I can't wait for their wedding this September!!

Congrats you two! 

Jason & Courtney | Engaged | Los Osos, Ca

I met Courtney when her and her sister paid me a visit for her sister Melissa's wedding a couple years ago. I instantly adored them and knew that we would become much more than photog and client, sure enough I consider these two girls very close friends now. I'm so thrilled that I got to photograph Mel's wedding and I literally squealed in excitement when I found out Jason had asked Courtney to marry her! Sure enough the next day we chatted and started to the photo/planning process!!!

I took Jason and Courtney to two of my favorite spots just outside of San Luis Obispo, CA. It literally feels like you are in a different world. 

These two are meant for each other, they are so much fun and were up for anything I suggested! I loved getting their practice dips on camera, there were so many laughs and smiles during this shoot my heart was full.

Congrats Jason and Courtney! I can't wait for your wedding next year!

Michael + Kassie | Engaged | Cayucos, Ca - Sneak PEEK!

Webster says that love is an incredibly powerful word. When you're in love, you always want to be together, and when you're not, you're thinking about being together because you need that person and without them your life is incomplete. This is Michael + Kassie, so in love that it's just easy to see, simple to live and a pleasure to capture.

Enjoy this sneak peek!

Ivan + Banesa | Engaged | Bridlewood Estate Winery - Los Olivos, Ca

The weekend of Ivan and Banesa's engagement photos, we were playing Russian Roulette with Mother Nature. The day before it had poured but the according to every weather app on the planet it was supposed to clear up by Sunday afternoon. Well sure enough, it was clear...but COLD and WINDY! We decided to go for it anyway, and I'm so glad we did.

Banesa was a champ, she was freezing but you would never know by looking at her photos.

I had such a great time with them, I can't wait for their wedding later this year!
