Santa Clarita Engagement: Adriana & Aaron

So excited to share Adriana & Aaron’s Santa Clarita engagement session on the blog tonight!

I had a great time with these two exploring the Placerita Canyon area and then off to the gorgeous pepper trees. Check out Adriana’s dress! GORGEOUS! I loved the black sheer layers, such a great dress for an engagement session! Totally matches Adriana’s love for all things Disney, it was a pretty magical dress.

These two are so easy going, but I feel like I say that a lot so probably most of my couples are. Hey, I’m down for that! Makes for a fun time during the session when they’ll go anywhere and do just about anything. Well, I am sure they would have drawn the line at some point. Maybe if I would have asked them to have a mud war or something. That actually sounds like a fun idea!Any takers? Maybe for the end of an engagement session though and somewhere with a bathroom or lake nearby. lol All that to say, it’s a good feeling to know that your clients trust you!

Adriana thought to wear some boots under her dress which was smart thinking because we did a little tromping around, up and down hills and had to wade through some pokey leaves. Maybe not wade through, but they weren’t the most pleasant to walk through and definitely not if you had high heels on. Once we got to some better ground Adriana put on her pretty heels for a few photos as well. Towards the end of their session Aaron picked up Adriana and twirled around in the middle of a long row of tall trees. Adriana kicked her heels up in the air and it made for such a cute photo!

Congrats on your engagement you two! I can’t wait for the wedding and to see all the pretty come together! – Megan

The Villa San Juan Capistrano Wedding

The Villa San Juan Capistrano Wedding

I love Koy & Michael’s gorgeous wedding that I shot with Brett Hickman Photographers at The Villa San Juan Capistrano. So much rustic charm at this venue! It had me swooning for sure! During the 1930s, itinerant workers lived in the house while harvesting walnuts, citrus, and other crops. It has since been extensively renovated but still has a lot of the original construction of the building including the floorboards, wallboard and porch. Walking around the property is quite magical if you enjoy that kind of history which in my opinion is what makes it such a gorgeous wedding venue.

Danielle & Jake: Lace and Mint Green Wedding

When I get to photograph the wedding of someone I’ve know for a little while it makes it that much more sweet because I know a little bit more about their family and just how much this wedding day is anticipated. I’ve know Danielle (or DeeJay to all her friends/fam) for a while and was so excited when I got her text asking me to photograph her wedding. I was photographing another wedding when I read her text and I couldn’t wait for the first little break I could steal away to reply YES, YES, YES! Ha! Since she contacted me before she got engaged I got in touch with Jake and we devised a plan for me to photograph the proposal on the Queen Mary which you can see here and their engagement session here.

Lexa & Eric: Oak Grove Church

Lexa & Eric said their vows earlier this month at the cutest little white country church that Lexa found in Rickreall, Oregon. Oak Grove Church was established in 1882 and is surrounded by vineyards, hayfields and orchards for miles. The church and gorgeous backdrop made for the perfect place to have a wedding!

These two met while traveling together on a ministry team in college Lexa & Eric became friends and soon that friendship turned into a more serious relationship. Eric proposed to Lexa this last December at Canon Beach and she said YES!

Oregon is where I grew up I was over the moon to be able to go back home to photograph Lexa & Eric’s wedding surrounded by the green trees and beautiful countryside that I will always love. I am so so happy for you two! It was an honor to be part of and document your day and I wish you both the very best as you serve the Lord together in ministry! -Megan

Lindsey & Chad: UCI University Club Wedding

uci university club wedding

Meet Lindsey & Chad! Their lovely wedding day was held at the UCI University Club in Irvine, CA. The grounds of the UCI university club were perfect for holding a wedding and there were plenty little areas tucked around the club for taking pictures with Lindsey & Chad.  After getting ready they  had a first look before their wedding ceremony at the University Club and Lindsey started to tear up as soon as she started walking towards Chad, it was a beautiful moment between the two of them to watch and capture. The ceremony was held just before sunset and we had some amazing warm light, beautiful! One of my favorite moments from this wedding was the emotion from Lindsey’s Dad as he hugged her before giving her away. There are no words to really describe that moment between father and daughter. Congrats to Lindsey & Chad and many thanks to Lauren for having me along as her second shooter for this wedding. She is amazing and I had a great time photographing beside her!
