A year or so ago I stumbled across a super cute healthy eating food blog (if you know me, you know I’m all about it!) written by a beauty named Paige. Paige & I just so happened to have mutual friends, which is how I had come across her blog. And then over the summer Nate & I met Paige at a birthday party. She was so sweet & lovely, and engaged to marry her best friend. We were so thrilled the following week when she emailed us regarding her wedding photography!
Paige & Marco were best friends for a long time, throughout high school and beyond, before they started dating. Marco proposed to Paige at Emma Wood Beach in Ventura, one of his favorite spots. Apparently Marco had been waiting for the perfect moment to pop the question when Paige started walking back to the car. He grabbed her hand, yanked her back around & got down on one knee. So sweet! We love that we got to photograph these two at a place that holds so much meaning for them! Paige & Marco–thank you for being such hilarious and kind people to work with! We had a blast with you two and are sooo excited to capture your big day! Enjoy! :) –A&N
Jaime & Mason met while riding dirt bikes 8 years ago. Mason was instantly taken with Jaime, but they remained just friends for the next few years, spending time together riding and getting to know one another. Eventually they realized that they were meant to be, and the rest is, as they say, history! ;) It was so fun incorporating Jaime & Mason’s love for dirt bikes into their engagement photos and capturing them with the very thing that brought them together. We are thrilled to be documenting their wedding next month at Spanish Hills! :)
Jessie & Greg’s engagement session in Los Angeles was so much fun. Griffith Park, only a few blocks from their apartment, is a spot they love and visit regularly, so it seemed fitting for their engagement photos. Jessie is the type of girl that everyone wants to be friends with–she’s super adorable, relaxed & is constantly laughing. Greg is creative, fun & energetic. Together? Clearly an excellent match. :-) We’re pretty pumped for their wedding this summer at the Glen Tavern Inn!
When we received an inquiry a few months back from Stephanie regarding her & her fiancé, Graham’s, May wedding, we were completely blown away. You see, when Nate & I got married, Stephanie was the second-shooter at our own wedding. So to say we are incredibly honored to be the ones Stephanie & Graham chose to document their own wedding day is a huge understatement–we are SO humbled!
Not only that, but Stephanie & Graham are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet–no joke! Immediately following their session, we received an adorable thank you note in the mail from them that made our day. But it wasn’t a total surprise, seeing as Stephanie & Graham are big fans of penning notes! They met in junior high and have been together since they were 13. When they went away to college, they wrote letters back and forth to each other until Graham eventually transferred to Cal Poly where they both graduated together. For their engagement photos, Stephanie & Graham chose to have their session at Lake Casitas. Graham grew up surfing & Stephanie has been rowing at the lake for the last 6 years, so taking their photos near water seemed fitting. :-)
Stephanie & Graham–THANK YOU!! We had so much fun with you guys & we are completely thrilled to be a part of your wedding–we can’t wait for May! :) –Lots of love, A&N
