Rachel & Jeffery Engagement || Santa Cruz & San Jose

I had the privilege to photograph the engagement of my two dearest friends! We started in the trails at Natural Bridges Park in Santa Cruz and made our way up to San Jose.

Rachel and Jeffery are so cute together and they’re always smiling so big when they’re with each other.

We decided to go to downtown Santa Cruz for a very important stop: Ice Cream!

Their engagement dinner was in San Jose at 7pm but we were able to squish in a really quick session at Foothills Nature Reserve right before!

Brooke & Case Family Portraits || Deervale-Stone Canyon Park, Sherman Oaks

Meet Finn! He’s a golden retriever puppy that is the newest member of Brooke & Case’s family. We went to Deervale-Stone Canyon Park in Sherman Oaks to snap some family photos. I loved this location! It’s hidden gem with a trailhead tucked away inside of a community.

As a 16-week old puppy, Finn had lots of energy and lots of love to give! 

I had a great time photographing Brooke & Case (and Finn!). Having a puppy in the photoshoot added dynamic to the photos and also helped bring out natural smiles in everyone.
