Confession: I sort of became smitten with MacKenzie and Phil just through our email exchanges, before even meeting them in person. Because a couple who is just so excited about their session, so overjoyed to brainstorm locations or props or outfits, whose happy personalities shine through just from their typed words are just my favorite kind of couple! :) Of course they were even sweeter in person and we had so much fun exploring Griffith Park and the observatory, with the three of us and one giant white balloon packed into their car :)

Also, how amazing is MacKenzie’s hair? Props to Theresa Huang for beautiful hair & make-up as always!

I was so excited when Sarah & Derrek suggested renting a row boat on a lake for their engagement session! The workers there suggested we rent a motor boat as well, that I could operate to push/pull them along and make moving around for all of us easier. Now I’ve never operated a row boat before, much less while simultaneously trying to shoot, and the behind-the-scenes of this session would be a bit clumsier than the photos suggest – boats spinning around in circles, us trying to get our boats together, communication via hand gestures, struggling with muddy anchors, and all during quite a scorcher of a day.

But Sarah & Derrek? They are total troopers, and so chill and fun, and make it look like they run out and do this every morning. And with these images as the end result? I’d say it was most definitely worth it :)

Melody and Caleb brought along the most lovely picnic for their engagement session! I also fell in love with Melody’s bike, which she rides around her hometown of Big Bear, looking for cute vintage finds like some of the ones they gathered below!

Melody & Caleb are so sweet and in love, and just light up around each other – so excited for their wedding this June {also super excited to work with the amazing Esther of My Bride Story!}
