San Luis Obispo Engagement Shoot | { Toby + Emily }

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

To say I am excited about this couple and this post would not do them justice. I love meeting all my couples and hearing about their love stories, but this is a love story that I got to watch first hand! Emily has become one of my dearest friends over the last couple years I was there when Emily and Toby first connected. It really was love at first sight. It was so fun watching them fall for each other and always get Emily’s excited updates about how stuff was going and getting to see them interact. Toby is so smitten with his beautiful bride to be and I know Emily is thrilled to have found the man of her dreams. I am honored to get to be part of their bridal party this Sunday! Hope you both love these shots :)  Can’t wait to do more of you two

Hillsborough, CA Wedding | { Ryan + Macharva }

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

After a couple hours of shooting some clients smiles start to freeze and need to start stretching out their cheeks. Not Macharva, She’s  used to it smiling all day :)  She and Ryan seem to have a fairy tale sort of relationship which is perfect since their wedding had a very whimsical fairy tale sort of feel. Bright flowers decorating a beautiful garden  ceremony and then a formal ballroom reception at the Hillsborough Racket Club.  It was so fun to see Ryan let loose on the dance floor for a surprise Grease rendition too!

San Luis Obispo Engagement Shoot | Steven + Courtney

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Some family members tried up set Steven and Courtney up, but being justifiably skeptical of set ups (we all have our disaster stories), a meeting was politely put off. Then as fate would have it Steven and Courtney met on their own, realized who each other were, and ended up kicking it off! I love it when fate intervenes :) It had been a long weekend of shooting for me, but these two were a treat and we got into a groove really quick. They are both so photogenic and you can tell they enjoy spending time together,  and add to it the beauty stylings of my favorite QueensBees team, so my job was easy. This is a handful more than my usual post, but even still I feel like I had to leave so many favorites out!
