engagement

Jeremy + Michaela

Jeremy + Michaela

Two of the best people I know.  We parked as far as we could in Lassen National Park (the roads aren't fully open for the season yet) and walked into a meadow full of mosquitoes and incredible views.  We spent the night just hanging out, talking about life, barefoot and drinking beer till the sun went down.  This is what summer nights are made of.

These two took me to Lake Tahoe for their engagement shoot and I couldn't believe I had never been here before! The whole area is so gorgeous and such a perfect place to meet and hang out with Valerie + Vedran.  These two are eloping later this year in Yosemite and I absolutely cannot wait!  It was so special to document their love and how much fun they have with each other.  Valerie was just loving all the PDA, it was great.

Last month, Rich and I had the opportunity to explore Utah a little bit in-between a few dreamy desert shoots.  There were so many places that took our breath away.

Such a treat to meet and photograph this couple.  They are the most genuine souls you will ever meet and spending the morning with them exploring San Francisco, eating ice cream, hiking around Mt. Tamalpias, was the best.  I think it's easy to want to be relaxed while planning your wedding, trying to keep the focus on the moment, instead of on the details.  Well, this couple is ACTUALLY doing that, and I am so proud of them for it.  So excited for your new life together friends!!

I don't often get to work locally since I live in a small Northern California town, so when these two contacted me to spontaneously do an engagement shoot while they were in town, I was so excited.  We went to one of the best waterfalls in the world, just 1 hour from Redding, and got completely soaked, as usual, while the tourists watched us like we were crazy.  Been there before. Meagan + Gavin were so sweet, and we had such a blast hanging out together.  Their love for each other just pours out of every image.  You can tell just how much they love being with each other.
