Autumn and Layton's Knapps Castle, CA Couples Shoot

Autumn and Layton's Knapps Castle, CA Couples Shoot

Knapp’s castle never disappoints. I’ve done a few sessions here over the years and was always blown away by the stunning architecture and sunsets, especially since most of my photography is at a beach with such different colors! I wanted to bring an amazing couple (insert Autumn and Layton) and do a styled shoot here. I went with a mild cinderella theme, with a beautiful Lulu’s light blue gown to contrast the orange stones. Riley’s flowers in Santa Barbara donated the beautiful bouquet and the rest was magic!

Maddie and Joe's Joshua Tree, CA Engagement Session

Maddie and Joe's Joshua Tree, CA Engagement Session

Maddie and Joe are two geologists at Caltech and both love being outside. We took a mini road trip to Joshua Tree and got some amazing light in an incredible landscape. I have been to J-tree so many times for climbing but this was my first time with clients! They opted for two outfits, the first being their geology field gear and the second a beautiful dress and shirt! The contrast between the two was really cool and I loved that they were true to themselves picking their clothes.

Juliana and Arvin's Balboa Park, CA Engagement Session

Juliana and Arvin's Balboa Park, CA Engagement Session

Juliana and Arvin both work in aerospace so I knew as a fellow science nerd we would all get along. It was great to explore the incredible architecture of Balboa Park with them. They brought their two extremely cute and fluffy dogs with them and although it took some wrangling of leashes and treats, it was so worth the extra effort to get some adorable family shots.

Lauren and Josh's Malibu, CA Engagement Session

Lauren and Josh's Malibu, CA Engagement Session

Lauren and Josh were on vacation with their family all the way from Columbus, Ohio and ready to explore the California coast. I was so excited to come back to El Metador State Beach for more golden hour photos! This beach never disappoints - the rocks and soft sand make for such a great backdrop as the sun goes down. The only problem is that there are always tons of photographers that share my love of Malibu, and I spend a lot of time photoshopping out all the people!

Layton and Autumn's Malibu, CA Engagement

Layton and Autumn's Malibu, CA Engagement

Autumn and Layton's magical California engagement session had the most incredible sunset. We ventured to Malibu to catch golden hour - and we definitely weren't the only ones with that idea! Our particular beach is a photography favorite and there were quite a few portrait sessions going on in the background. I spent a bit of time editing out the people in these photos, but that perfect golden light was completely worth the effort.
