Gavin & Mallory’s Central Coast Engagement

There’s nothing like the crashing of waves against rocks as you take your engagement photos.  Mallory and Gavin traveled to Cambria, California to capture the magic of the ocean in their images.  We photographed Mallory and Gavin at sunset on a windy beach day.  The blue and grey tones that they wore complemented the beach perfectly.  We were slightly obsessed with the low back of Mallory’s maxi dress and just loved how it floated around in the wind.  What a fun day we had with them and we can not wait to capture more of their love on their wedding day!

Bianca and Adam’s BCC engagement session

What a great few days for blog posts…it’s just full of the Andrew’s sisters! Bianca is Tia’s little sister, from last Wednesday’s post, and we all grew up together! I’ve known Bianca since I was 14, meaning she was around 8 years old when we first met. I’ve known her for most of her life and got to watch her grow up.

Bianca is now engaged to Adam and he is absolutely wonderful! Their engagement session was done at Bakersfield Country Club (BCC) and we decided to use film to photograph them. Bianca wore an olive green dress and Adam wore dark denim jeans with a black button up. It was pretty chilly when we were shooting, but Bianca braved the winter air and was the most beautiful model!

We had so much fun photographing Bianca and Adam. They are such a beautiful couple and we could not be happier to be shooting their wedding in Tahoe this summer! It is so much fun but also surreal to photograph the engagement session of someone you have known for practically your whole life…especially when it is one of your best friend’s sisters.

Congratulations Bianca and Adam!

Meghan and Andy’s Orange Grove Engagement Session

It was a beautiful sunny day in the orange groves when we photographed Meghan and Andy’s engagement session.

They had two outfits, one casual, one dressy.  We all loved both outfit choices but I particularity loved the color scheme of the casual outfits. The dark red and white really meshed well together and contrasted the cool greens of the orange grove, making Meghan and Andy stand out that much more.

Their session was photographed on film, as it was really the perfect day for it.

They were able to bring their dog to the engagement session – what a cutie pie he was!  I couldn’t get over his adorableness and had a great time taking pictures of their fur baby. He was really well behaved too and enjoyed his day thoroughly in the orange grove.

Meghan and Andy were so cute, I especially love both of their laughing faces. I was lucky enough to catch a bunch of those on camera too!

Carson and Elise’s San Francisco Engagement Session

When Elise called me about doing her engagement photos in San Francisco, I was beyond excited!  Our friendship dates back to the days of elementary school and I couldn’t wait to capture such a special time in my childhood friend’s life.  Out of town photo sessions are the best because I get to do my two favorite things, travel and take pictures!  For Elise and Carson’s engagement session, our original location got thwarted by a wind storm (flying sand and camera equipment just don’t mix) so we ended up at the Palace of Fine Arts for the majority of our shoot.  It was a blast, I even go to shoot a roll of film.  At the very end of the session, we braved the beach just to get that golden gate bridge shot and boy was it crazy.  What a fun time it was photographing a friend in such an exciting city.  As Tony Bennett said, “I left my heart in San Francisco!”San Francisco Engagement Session 1San Francisco Engagement Session 2San Francisco Engagement Session 3San Francisco Engagement Session 4San Francisco Engagement Session 5San Francisco Engagement Session 6San Francisco Engagement Session 7San Francisco Engagement Session 8San Francisco Engagement Session 9

Tiffany and Josh’s Hart Park Engagement Session

Tiffany and Josh chose a location close to home, Hart Park in Bakersfield California. Although close to home, these love birds found adventure out there among the overgrown grass and trees. Among the Autumn falling leaves and the wild grasses was Tiffany and Josh and a handful of beautiful bright balloons. They were a ton of fun to photograph. The brightly colored balloons complimented their bright personalities. Laughing and giggling surrounded us at this engagement shoot. They brought along fun props to their engagement session that really showcased their personalities as a couple. The balloons and bubbles they brought along were so much fun to photograph.  I don’t know about you, but when I see bubbles… pure joy! Bubbles are so much fun to photograph and give an added detail to your images.  Thank you Tiffany and Josh for allowing us to capture your free spirits and loving hearts.
