Christian proposed to Daena at the end of the pier at the Municipal Wharf in Santa Cruz and of course she said YES!! Before the exciting moment happened, we followed them around the boardwalk like two sneaky paparazzi!
Christian and Daena just moved to LA a few months ago, and lived in the Peninsula area before that. Christian picked the wharf because of their personal history here. He prepared a two-day “scavenger hunt” for Daena that included some little stories and clues to different spots in the area, led her to some of the boardwalk amusement park rides, and finally, took her to the wharf where he popped the question. Isn’t that sweet?!! He even hand folded all the clues into three different shapes! We ended this perfect proposal session with a killer sunset. Congrats Christian and Daena!!
We had the chance to shoot some beautiful engagement photos for Aubrianna and Daniel in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. They travelled from Las Vegas and we wanted to be sure to give them some of the best views in San Francisco, which is a special city to them as it is where Aubrianna’s dad was born. Luckily, the fog was completely cleared when we started to shoot and the sun was setting right behind the bridge, giving us a dramatic golden-orange sunset! [ read more … ]
Grace & Peyton are from Georgia and went to the same elementary school… how cute! They studied in college together and later moved to California. They’re having their wedding in Athens (like David & me!), and even though they just got engaged, they’re SO on top of all the wedding planning. Their wedding photographer will definitely be in for a real treat — it can’t get better than shooting the wedding of a beautiful sweet couple who have all the details carefully planned!
Max and Renee are our close friends. We had the privilege of being their maid of honor and best man at their wedding last August, and David actually proposed to me that night under a meteor shower right after their wedding so it was a special night for all of us. Since their one-year anniversary is approaching, we wanted to gift them a special photo session at Shoreline Park in Mountain View and the Hakone Japanese Gardens in Saratoga. Their friendship means a lot to us and we can’t wait for them to be a part of the bridal party at our wedding this October! Yay!!! Happy anniversary, Max and Renee!
Abrar and Sarah came all the way from Toronto to visit this beautiful city, and Annie was excited to meet some fellow Canadians and to shoot this great moment for them! What touched us the most was the thought Abrar put into planning this moment, and also the ring — mined in Ontario and cut in Saskatchewan, representing their respective home provinces.
