Chelsea & Matthew – Livermore Engagement Session

I met up with Chelsea and Matt for the first time almost a year ago. They each brought their mom with them, and it was awesome to learn about not only the two of them but also their fun families that chilly morning! We had actually been in touch for several months by that time, so it was amazing to finally meet these two!

At that meeting, I learned that Chelsea and Matt were planning a move from San Diego up to Livermore, CA, where some of Matt’s family is. Chelsea had visited Livermore when Matt lived there previously, so she thought it would be a great place for their engagement session, and I couldn’t agree more! We visited downtown Livermore, a few public parks, and a winery out in the county for these images, including a handful after dark!

After our nighttime session, Chelsea and Matt were kind enough to enlighten me on the amazingness that is CREAM. It was so delicious and fun! I loved it so much that I had to include this iPhone photo of my yummy ice cream sandwich in this post! This sandwich is made of two snickerdoodle cookies and salted caramel ice cream. And don’t worry–it’s all gluten free! :)

Mark & Courtney – San Antonio Engagement Session

Mark and Courtney got engaged a few months ago, and I was excited to take some engagement photos while I was in Texas over Thanksgiving! We were outside of San Antonio, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, for a distillery tour and whiskey tasting at Garrison Brothers, and then for some wine across the street at William Chris.

Born in the same hospital just a few days apart, Mark and Courtney are both Texas Aggies (whoop!) who didn’t meet until they were back in San Antonio after college, though they had been at A&M at the same time. Mark had proposed at another nearby winery, Becker Vineyards, so it made sense to meet up at a distillery and winery for these images!

Happy 239th Birthday, USMC!

Capturing these portraits for a retired Marine and his beautiful wife were so fun! Erik was the guest of honor at a recent Marine Corps Birthday Ball at San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel, so we met up before the ball to capture these unique portraits near the hotel. Aren’t they just stunning?!
