Chris & Kim - Montana De Oro, CA - Engagement Photos

She walked into a bar in Paris, struck up conversation with a stranger, who co-incidentally would turn out to be the love of her life.
If that's not the makings for a magical love story, I QUIT.

Ivan & Manny - Cambria Engagement Photos

I can tell how a couple is going to handle a lifetime together by the role laughter plays in their relationship.
And if my calculations are correct -- Ivan & Manny are going to be juuuuuuuuuuust fine.

Daniel & Megan - Monarch Dunes Engagement Photos

"Before you leave, pease know this:
I'd rather be the girl
whose name dies at your lips
every time you try to speak of me,
than a girl you tell stories about at parties.

What I'm saying is this, darling.

I'd rather be your absinthe,
than your cup of tea."

Trevor & Lindsey - Pregnancy Photos

You only get a handful of "soul mates" in this life. Lindsey is one of mine. Trevor is one of hers. And soon, she's going to meet her 3rd soul mate -- the little bundle of life-changing-ness in her womb. My eyes are seriously stinging with feels as I write this. You see, I met Lindsey 6 years ago when I desperately needed someone who understood this photography part of my life. She gets me in a way not even my HUSBAND does (which is why we have fondly coined the term "work wife" for one another). And in just 4 short weeks (give or take), she is not only going to join the mom club, but the "run a photography business from home while being a mom" club. And I am selfishly SO HAPPY to welcome another member. I love these two souls more than words can ever express, and I am over the moon to witness them make the transition into parenthood. They're going to be SO kickass at it.

Alec & Carolyn - Carmel Beach Engagement Photos

Carolyn first emailed me in January of 2016. Over the past year and a half, we have exchanged over 100 emails and text messages, she sent me a care package when I was pregnant, and then again when Phoenix was born. But it wasn't until Thursday of last week that I finally got to see this couple face to face. And the reunion was everything I dreamed it would be - complete with slow running from across the wedding venue (mostly because Carolyn's shoes wouldn't allow her to walk any faster).

I know I've said it a million times, but it's true so I'll say it again: I book the most AMAZING couples. I am so blessed to have met these two and captured their wedding just a few short days after we got together for their engagement shoot (so stay tuned for that beautiful-ness).
