Kevin & Carrie’s Park Adventure Engagement Session

What’s better than an engagement session with a fantastic couple at the always gorgeous Balboa Park in San Diego?carrie_kevin0045carrie_kevin0038Only a session with all that, PLUS their adorable little daughter!carrie_kevin0011carrie_kevin0063carrie_kevin0092

(She’s one year old now and I think she’s pretty proud of it!)

As you can see, Kevin and Carrie’s session had it all and then some.carrie_kevin0033carrie_kevin0081There’s the incredible architecture the park has to offer…carrie_kevin0073… the mind blowing feats of nature…carrie_kevin0048… the little fiesta area of shops I never knew about…carrie_kevin0085… and then there’s this little one!carrie_kevin0064carrie_kevin0069What more could we ask for in an engagement session?carrie_kevin0031carrie_kevin0044carrie_kevin0005Kevin and Carrie, thanks so much for planning the perfect session, for being up for quite a hike around the park, and for spending as much time as we needed with you… and then some! I know I used the word “adventure” pretty liberally in the title of this post, but hey, we DID survive major clothing malfunctions, slippery slopes around fairytale tree roots, and this lip…carrie_kevin0026… so I think we’re ready to take on the best wedding day EVER! See you guys there, we can’t wait!carrie_kevin0089

3 States, 2 People, 1 Wedding: Chenaill and Auggie’s Engagement

As Chenaill and Auggie well know, being engaged while living in separate states is tough!0011  Especially when the state you’re getting married in is neither of the ones that either of you are living in! Three states, two people, and one wedding. Now that is complicated!00670045But when you see them together, it’s obvious that it’s all well worth it.00030034Who cares about complication when you’re this in love?!0065Plus, I think that Chenaill and Auggie are up for the challenge! They decided to make the most of their time in California by having their engagement session done at the same time they were here checking things off the wedding planning to do list.008500380046We also made a little checklist of our own for the engagement session!0064Laughing and having a fun time together? Check.0004Seeing someplace new and different? Check.00390009Hanging out on the beach? Check.0070Being really really ridiculously good looking? Double check.008200760042Goals accomplished! Overall it was a fantastic session! 0087Chenaill and Auggie, we had so so SO much fun with you guys!!!0075I hope you love the pictures as much as we loved taking them! Good luck with all the wedding planning, I think it’s going to be a good one!00660062CLICK HERE to see the rest of the photos from Chenaill and Auggie’s Engagement Session!

Kelsey and Steven’s Busy Beach Engagement Session (by Scott & Breanna)

Ah the sound of the ocean, the feeling of sand under your feet, and the sounds of children laughing…kelsey_steve0061kelsey_steve0079kelsey_steve0087… or is that thousands of adults laughing, screaming, and talking? Yep, it’s the second one!kelsey_steve0026When we arrived at the Santa Monica Pier for Kelsey and Steven’s engagement session, we definitely expected to find more of the first and ended up with a lot more of the second!kelsey_steve0008kelsey_steve0029Unbeknownst to us, it was the night of the free concert on the pier, and there were thousands of people there along with their millions of bottles of wine. At first, I was a little worried that all these people might take a toll on our photo session, but happily found out that instead, they actually added to it!kelsey_steve0053I mean, what’s a completely empty and quiet beach? The answer is it’s a sad beach! It’s way more fun if there are tons of people wading in the water, building sand castles, or you know, getting drunk on a Thursday night perhaps! 😉kelsey_steve0076kelsey_steve0108kelsey_steve0039kelsey_steve0009In the end, the people really added to the whole energy of the session and gave it a fun hustle and bustle feel… or rather, gave it a more intimate feel with Kelsey and Steven being lost in their own world while people all around them were in a hurry to get in line for a corn dog or to get in the front row of the stage!kelsey_steve0056When you have a couple this perfect for each other and this in love, you can put them anywhere, including in a group of hundreds of people, and they will always catch your eye!kelsey_steve0054So overall, it was a very fantastic and fun session! We had a great time with Kelsey and Steven, got some amazing pictures, saw several intense public displays of affection, dodged some gnarly seagull poop, and are now looking forward to your wedding day even more than we were before!kelsey_steve0074kelsey_steve0058

Martin and Emily’s Coffee Instigated Engagement Session (by Scott & Breanna)

Martin and Emily have an extra special place in my (Breanna’s) heart.




No, not just because they are super fun to be around (well, yeah because of that too actually!)…


… and not just because they were amazing in front of the camera (though of course that’s part of it)…



…but because they met through my beloved former employer, Starbucks!


Emily is a Starbutian? Starbucker? Starbaritianer? Whatever… you know what I mean, she works there!




Martin was just a casual coffee drinker (or maybe a very serious one, I don’t know!) but I’m guessing that on his casual trips into to coffee land, the last thing he ever expected was to meet the love of his life! But lo and behold, that’s exactly what happened!



They became fast friends and remained just friends for quite sometime, until the magical Starbucks Siren wooed them into love and they became a wonderful couple who enjoys spending tons of time together and just can’t get enough of one another!



See what I mean?!


They are so wonderfully cute together! Their love is so adorable, you just want to squeeze them!


Which is why we can’t wait to see them together on their wedding day! I have a feeling, it’s going to be one for the Starbucks’ match-making history books (which I don’t think exist, but probably should!).


(In case you can’t tell, Martin is a Flamenco dancer!)




Thanks for a wonderful session, Martin and Emily, and we look forward to seeing you on the big day!

Kristin and Rob’s in LOOOOVE engagement session (by Scott & Breanna)

If you know Kristin and Rob at all, you know they are in LOOOOVE! (insert fake kissy sounds here).



Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course you know they are in love with one another! For one thing, they’re getting married in America where romantic love is pretty much the main reason we get married, and two, these pictures say it all!



But what you may not know is that they also are in LOOOVE with their new home…


… their cat….


… and Rob’s boys (not pictured, so Cat will happily take their place!).


So I think it’s safe to say they are in LOOOOVE with life right now!


All signs point to them being very HAPPY!


Judging by all the major clues we’ve just given you, my guess is that you will agree with us (Scott & Breanna) when we say that it’s a good thing these two happy people who are so in LOOOOVE are about to get married!





(Like our Facebook page to be the first to see when their wedding pictures go up!)




We are so excited these two found each other and we can’t wait to be there for the wedding to see their happiness grow even bigger (though I think the sign will stay the same size)!
