You don’t need a lot of fanciness and frills for a pretty engagement session – perhaps just an open beach, a little (or a lot!) of wind, a pop of color in a skirt and a bouquet of bright blooms… and of course a couple who can let loose and just enjoy their love for each other :) I’m loving the outfits they chose and Diana’s gorgeous flowy beachy hair in all these photos! It was crazy windy that day but her hair seemed to fly in all the right directions every time (can’t say the same for this photographer!)
I seriously had so much fun with them both and also found inspiration in their love – Diana and Marvin have a very distinct sweetness to their interaction. Even just in the two hours we spent together, I could see how they were always considerate of how the other was doing or feeling, that they were so patient, loving, and kind toward each other in every moment. They have huge hearts and it makes me overjoyed that they’ve found one another :) So excited for their big day this fall…

Michael found a ladybug! That has to be good luck :)
These photos were taken not long after Viviana and Michael flew in from their home in Australia in preparation for their LA wedding. It was my first time meeting them in person and I was so happy we could fit this session in, and even more happy to find Viviana & Michael are just as chill and awesome as our email exchanges & video meeting suggested!
Pair that with some of the prettiest nature Orange County has to offer, and you have a most happy photographer and a lovely little session. Those fields of yellow flowers? Pretty sure I could shoot in them all day every day and not get tired.

It was supposed to rain this day – something like an 80% chance, all throughout the bay area. And even though we had been planning this session for weeks (with clear weather and pretty outdoor locations in mind) Vicky and Brian didn’t let the forecast dampen their spirits, instead opting to collect a bunch of colorful cute umbrellas, brainstorm some backup ideas, and roll with it.
But what do you know? I arrive at the airport, step outside, and not a raindrop in sight. As we drove over to Stanford for the session, the sun even began to peek through. The umbrellas stayed in the car, and these pretty springtime images are what we got :)
