I had so much fun with Van and Chris for their session, it seriously felt like hanging out with old friends! As ridiculously good looking these two are on the outside, let me just tell you that they have the hearts to match – they’re some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and are just as fun as these photos suggest! We started off at the LA Arboretum and finished up at the historic Colorado Bridge. I love how we were able to combine the whimsy of the garden with the more dramatic look of the bridge, while keeping it all tied together with that light-filled, romantic feel that I adore :)

Can’t wait for their pretty summer wedding next month!

I instantly noticed how Jennifer and Chun have such a sweet connection, constantly making each other smile & laugh. That kind of connection where their senses of humor sync right up and they just get each other. We wandered around the LA Arboretum for their session, which has so many beautiful spots for photos! I was of course especially in love with the pretty pink blossoms we stumbled upon at the end – those soft watercolor hues get me everytime!

Their January wedding will be kicking off my 2015 season and I just can’t wait!

On a sunny spring day last year, I flew up to and back from Napa, and in the middle, photographed this amazing session at the French Laundry gardens.

But let’s start from the beginning shall we? Steph and Bruce are both big foodies and really wanted to incorporate this shared passion for food into their engagement session. After some brainstorming, they arranged for us to photograph at the beautiful gardens of Thomas Keller’s French Laundry restaurant {year after year named one of the best restaurants in the world}. The French Laundry grows much of its own produce in a vegetable garden across from their restaurant, and it was a treat wandering through the open gardens photographing this sweet couple. Aside from vibrant flowers and veggies they brought to add color to the session (adore!), they had a handful of pretty macarons — they have special memories of sharing these together in Paris, where they were engaged, as well as baking their own versions (amazing!) at home.

I could go on and on about the loveliness of this session, and how much fun Steph and Bruce are, and how we talked about food all day long, and how we laughed & chatted more over dinner at Bouchon, and how it all makes my heart want to explode into a million pieces of happy confetti, but I’m going to let the images do the talking. Enjoy this afternoon stroll in the garden… :)
