Kailey + Tyler {Palm Desert, CA - Couples Session}

*sees cool location in another state. books trip to location within a week just to shoot there*

Okay, but seriously. Who wouldn't want to do a session with mirrors in the desert?! I am so excited that these two lovebirds were totally down for a shoot here. We had tons of fun braving the hordes of mostly-naked humans trying to get a perfect coachella picture! Hahaha

The desert stole my heart & I am already dying to get back. Please enjoy these yummy desert vibes.

Heather + Tim {Palm Desert, CA - Proposal}

HEATHER AND TIM ARE NEW FRIENDS OF DAVID AND I.

WE MET AT A NEW YEAR'S PARTY FOR LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHERS & CREATIVES IN THE LOS ANGLES AREA, BUT SADLY I WAS MOVING TO TEXAS THE NEXT WEEK. WE MADE SURE TO STAY IN TOUCH & WHEN I TOLD HEATHER I WAS GOING TO VISIT CALIFORNIA, WE PLANNED THE MOST EPIC DOUBLE DATE EVER. 

LITTLE DID SHE KNOW THAT TIM & I HAD BEEN CONSPIRING. BEING AVID COFFEE DRINKERS, TIM DECIDED TO PROPOSE AT A CUTE COFFEE SHOP IN FULLERTON ON OUR WAY TO SALVATION MOUNTAIN. HE HAD THE BARISTA MAKE THE LATTE ART LOOK LIKE A RING & WHEN HE BROUGHT THE DRINK TO THE TABLE HE PROPOSED. AFTER THE PROPOSAL, DAVID AND I WERE ABLE TO CELEBRATE WITH THEM & CAPTURE THEIR LOVE.

Wendy + Krik {San Clemente, CA - Couples Session}

HAVE YOU EVER MET SOMEONE THAT YOU JUST COMPLETELY CLICKED WITH? WHEN YOU MEET THEM YOU'RE JUST LIKE "MAN, THIS IS MY KIND OF PERSON." WELL, THAT'S EXACTLY HOW I FELT THE FIRST TIME WENDY CUT MY HAIR. HAHAHA! WENDY WAS MY INSANELY COOL HAIR STYLIST WHEN I WAS LIVING IN CALIFORNIA & I WAS SO EXCITED THAT I GOT TO CAPTURE THE LOVE BETWEEN HER AND HER MAN!

I KNEW WENDY BEFORE HER AND KIRK WERE EVEN ENGAGED SO I GOT TO SIT BACK AND LISTEN TO THEIR STORY UNFOLD EVERY TIME I WAS IN HER SALON CHAIR. KIRK PROPOSED TO WENDY ON THEIR TRIP TO SALEM, MA AT THE WITCH TRIALS CEMETERY WITH A STUNNING BLACK DIAMOND! IF YOU THOUGHT THEY COULDN'T GET COOLER, THEY GOT MARRIED ON HALLOWEEN, AND IF YOU THOUGHT THEY COULDN'T GET COOLER THAN THAT, YOU'RE SOOOO WRONG. THEY GOT MARRIED ON THE HAUNTED MANSION RIDE IN DISNEYLAND! LIKE ARE YOU JOKING. THEY ARE DEFINITELY TWO KINDRED SPIRITS.

. WE HAD BEEN PLOTTING AND PLANNING THIS SESSION FOR SO LONG AND LAST TIME I WAS IN CALIFORNIA, WE FINALLY MADE IT HAPPEN. THIS SHOOT WAS STRAIGHT OUT OF A DREAM. THE PICTURES ARE IMMEASURABLY MORE THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED & THEIR SWEET LOVE SHOWS IN EVERY SINGLE PICTURE. I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE MORE MAGIC WITH THESE TWO BEAUTIFUL SOULS.
