Engagement Session: Jackie and Logan

Engagement Session: Jackie and Logan

I've been friends with Jackie for several years, so when she called me up after she was newly engaged, I was ecstatic. You see, Jackie is not only one of the kindest people you will meet, but she also has a smile (and the most adorable dimples) that lights up any and every room she walks into. So, of course, I said yes! (and then immediately proceeded to do a happy dance)

I met Logan a couple years ago and noticed right away that they just fit together. Logan is welcoming, genuine, and attentive; traits that just perfectly complemented the awesomeness that is Jackie.

Up until two days before their engagement session, Jackie and Logan had their hearts set on Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe, for their shoot. This was where Logan had proposed and so it was a special place to the both of them. 

We had the plans all sorted. Location, time, outfits. And then I got an email from Jackie. She told me that Logan had done all of this research and mapped out a route for us in Sacramento. I love shooting in nature, but I don't get the chance too often to do urban-y engagement sessions. I was sold. From alley ways to rooftops, this shoot had it all.

So, we completely changed our plan and I'm totally okay with it. Friends, I hope you love the result as much as I do.

Engagement Session: Sarah and Dan

According to Dan, the proposal was code named "Operation Sea Otter," where he asked Sarah to marry him right by the water at Moonstone Beach. They both share a love of otters and, just as Dan was about to get on one knee, they looked out on the water and saw a pair of otters. No joke. If that doesn't melt your heart, folks, I don't know what will.

When Sarah, Dan, and I were discussing the details of their engagement session, they only had one request; they wanted their shoot to be where Dan had proposed. We picked the date (which was several months out) and really hadn't give weather a second thought. California usually has pretty fantastic weather, even in the winter.

Well, fast forward to February and we had the storm of the century. on our hands. Luckily, the time of day that we scheduled our shoot, there was a break in the torrential downpour which allowed for the most stunning backdrop to their photos. The combination of the ocean and green, rolling hills is where it's at.

I'm not sure if I have ever laughed so much during an engagement session. Honestly. Their love is both evident and contagious. Thank you, Dan and Sarah, for choosing me to photograph such a special day. You guys rock.

These two are getting married this June and I could not be more thrilled.  XOXO
