Sometimes a client will come to me with a very strong visual idea of what they want their engagement session or wedding portraits to look like. We will share a pinterest board and talk about concepts and styling - we may even go shopping together for props or clothes. I feel so lucky to have clients like Nicole and Brian with great personal style and creativity, who are willing to experiment and play with ideas. These types of shoots feed my soul and I take full advantage of them when they come around.
A sweet musical couple, french horns and a hazy Santa Barbara day turned out to be the perfect recipe for engagement photos. I am so pleased to share Katy and Jarrett's session today. The way their smiles light up every time they look at eachother is so genuine and I love them for it.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sara and Matt face-to-face for the first time at Hendry's Beach, here in Santa Barbara. They live in Colorado but love to be near the ocean. While drinking celebratory champagne in honor of their newly engaged status, Sara and Matt shared with me the story of how they began their courtship. It was a long game of Cat and Mouse in College before Sara finally agreed to go out with Matt. Soon after, they discovered they share an insatiable love for traveling and exploring. So, it seems perfectly fitting that while on vacation in Hawaii, after an unexpectedly strenuous hike up a crater, Matt proposed and Sara said yes. Now, here they are, living proof that the right one is truly worth waiting for.
