The place he proposed. The spot of the first kiss. Places that tell our couples' love stories.
There is something particularly magical about medium format film, my friends. For Nikhil and Tracy’s already gorgeous engagement session at Crystal Cove State Park (see their first post here!), the film captures those ocean blues in its own dreamy-creamy fashion. And I AM OBSESSED. Film means slowing down… it means being even more intentional about
It all began with a little bit of mystery. When they met in medical school, Tracy couldn’t quite figure out if Nikhil was just being a *super* nice guy, or if he had a thing for her. He’d make her feel extra special and taken care of – always bringing her coffee and making her
The giddy feeling in our hearts from Bob and Taylor’s engagement session is still going oh-so-strong! Jeff and I photographed these lovebirds at Hotel Del Coronado, where the property was glowing with that beautiful winter golden light that we love soooo very much. (And holy moly… that SUNSET!) It. Was. Magical! But what truly lit
With all the far-away places that life takes Dan and Jen, HOME is the most sacred place. Tons of time and elbow-grease have gone into making their home the perfect haven… and they could spend hours content at home with a charcuterie board, two glasses of wine, and records of Tom Petty or The Grateful
As the sun made its way to the horizon and covered Chris and Sarah in warm, golden light… it also covered them in an overwhelming assurance of grace. That peaceful, oh-so-beautiful moment served as a reminder of all they’d walked through in the last year: more trusting, more challenges, more determination to grow a deep,
Every minute of their oh-so-long flight, Greg and Courtney were giddy with all the adventure that awaited them in Paris: crêpes and wine and patisseries and touring all the iconic landmarks in the city of love. But Greg had one specific moment rolling over and over in his mind: the moment he planned to ask
When they first met, CJ was instantly attracted to Elizabeth’s irresistible sassiness, authenticity, and confidence. Well…AND the fact that she’s drop-dead-gorgeous. She took one look at him and was genuinely impressed. CJ was a true gentleman, he made her feel comfortable in her own skin, and their chemistry?? Off. The. Charts. We hung out with
David and Lisa have no shortage of adventure in their love story. They first met in the mountains of Mammoth, fell in love on the beaches in San Diego, and after shark diving off the shores of Fiji, David asked Lisa to adventure with him forever. But for David and Lisa, they could be flying
Minh and Cathy are two best friends who also happen to be head-over-heels for each other. Minh can’t get enough of this gorgeous girl and everything that makes her who she is: her constant joke-cracking, endless creativity and ambition, and her oh-so-infectious personality. When it came to choosing her, it was a no-brainer. And Cathy
She usually never did this. Heather is a traditional type of girl, one who usually waits for the guy to make the first move… But when she came across Doug’s profile on a dating app, she thought maybe she’d make an exception. Just this once. So she did – she left him a message, leaving
Every night as he’s dozing to sleep, one lingering thought always crosses Wade’s mind: I still can’t believe I get to marry her. Wade met Catherine in medical school, and from the moment he saw her across the classroom, he couldn’t get this graceful, joyful girl out of his mind. He made his first move
With Amelia and Greg, they never have to wonder. Their love is so strong and so sure – and their souls so deeply connected – that they never *ever* have to wonder how much the other loves them. Because they already know it… deep down in their truest core. With them, it’s an abundance of
