A beach/bluff e-session is one of my favorite combinations. I was thrilled when Sami contacted me after having seen some of my work and wanted to shoot their engagement photos at Douglas Family Preserve and Hendry's Beach. It's like my second home! When the light is too strong you have some tree coverage up on the bluffs and when the sun starts to set you get to go play on the beach. If I ever complain about anything - someone please remind me I live in paradise and have my dream job. Now let's all enjoy Sami and Trevor's engagement collection. And take note of the fedora when you see it. It was the hat Sami was wearing when Trevor proposed. *collective AWWWW*
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.
