On a chilly Saturday, Jake and Katie met me at this little park in Brentwood. We had talked previously and she let me know that Disneyland was the best place on earth and that she’d like to incorporate that into our session. I think bringing personal mementos that really speak to your special relationship is so fun and adds an extra sweetness to look back on. So after talking for a few minutes, I got a really clear idea of who she was and I was really excited to bring our vision to life. As I walked up to their car to meet them for the first time, I was antsy to see all of the things they brought that spoke to them as a couple.
Inscribed Minnie and Mickey Mouse ears, Mickey hands and such an easygoing nature is what got this shoot off right from the start. As the sun started to set, I knew that this was going to be a good day.
And what a beautiful day it was, with two beautiful people, in love and getting ready to spend their lives together.
Jake & Katie: I know how special this time is for you, just watching you Katie talk about your wedding plans and watching you Jake talk about Katie. You both have that sparkle in your eye and a quiet comfort with each other. Jake, I think the best decision you ever made was stepping in with your friend to save the girls at the bar that night! 🙂 Thank you for picking me to document this time and I cannot wait for your wedding!
