Wild adventurous lovers / Menifee, Ca


These two are fiercely in love and it was easy to let them just be.

Be in love. Be goofy. Be married. Be young.

With the help of a dress dug out of a chest from the 70's, some fun hair and make up and Sarah + Matt's playful relationship, I was able to pull of this last minute styled shoot.


Lets talk about Sarah and Matt for a second.

I have known Sarah for a bit now and she is literally the sweetest human being EVER. Like she literally wants everyone to be happy and finds a way to make that happen. So when I was going to pick a couple to do this shoot with, I immediately thought of her and her husband. I mean just listen to this story…

“The proposal story is basically that we went up to Santa Cruz and he proposed to me on the beach. He got frantic as the sun started setting, trying to find the PERFECT little beach. We spend the day at the Santa Cruz boardwalk and then that night he proposed on the beach. It was just us and the cliffs and the ocean. He also made me a ring out of some diamonds from my grandma, and a pearl we got from an oyster in Hermosa beach (where my parents met and got married). He designed the ring with his dad and had it made. It was the pearl ring I always wanted.”

Like, guys, come on! I’m not crying, you’re crying.
