AN ARCHIVE OF love stories

Being invited into the the lives of extraordinary people is an incredible privilege. The stories I adorn through my imagery capture the true essence of the human spirit and the art of being in love.

Santa Barbara Beach Engagement Session | Kristen + Michael

Michael and Kristen have a very unique story. They first met in preschool and used to play together when they were young kids. However, it wasn’t until middle school in the 7th grade that they started ‘dating’ and have been together ever since. Neither one ever thought it would lead to this amazing relationship when they were growing up but by college they told me they knew were meant to be with each other and couldn’t be happier for how things turned out.

The Proposal (from Kristen)
The night Michael proposed he took me out to dinner at a nice restaurant two days before Christmas. We had such a good time and I never suspected anything with how calm and cool he was. We then were going to drive to a Christmas party but instead we drove to our preschool where we first met. As we were on the street of where our preschool was at I started reminiscing on those days so when Michael pulled into the parking lot I thought nothing of it. It wasn’t until I saw all of these lights on the deck and a romantic setup that I started realizing what this could be. We got onto the deck and my cousin was there filming us. Michael had memorized a whole speech for a couple of minutes. I was in complete shock! When I said yes both of our families came out from behind a black curtain to celebrate with us. It truly was the best night of my life!

Even though they had to postpone their upcoming wedding due to everything going on in the world right now, I cannot wait to see these two on their wedding day.
