Maddie & Hugo

Engagement || Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles

When was the last time that you watched the sunrise? We wouldn't have been able to answer that question before this shoot! Maddie & Hugo were such troopers and met us at Griffith Observatory while it was still dark (but the view was AMAZING with all of the city lights!). We were able to capture these two and their adorable googly eyes for each other while the sun was rising behind them. It was magical!! We have pretty much watched Maddie grow up, so it was SO special being able to spend this time with Hugo and Maddie, capturing this exciting season in their lives. They are so kindhearted not only to one another but to those around them. We are so excited to see what God has in store for them!

Ben & Kathleen

Engagement Shoot || Palos Verdes, CA

These love birds are near and dear to our hearts because we have pretty much watched Kathleen grow up. Not only that but Ellis and Kathleen became sistas when Ellis married Kathleen's brother, Johnny, a few years ago. AKA these two mean a lot to us! Being able to capture this special time for them was such an honor. This season is filled with endless to do lists & decisions, pink flamingo floaties in Palm Springs (ladies Bach weekend!), delicious cake tastings, finalizing honeymoon plans, and dreaming of what it will be like to finally be a wife or a husband. It was so special to pause and take the time to photograph their little love story!
