Dreamy Engagement Session in the Santa Monica Mountains

We were so excited for Emilia and Andrew’s engagement session for many, many reasons. First, this is a session we had been waiting to do for months due to the shelter-in-place orders. When we found out that we were FINALLY able to schedule their session (with appropriate social distancing of course), you know we had a little dance party!

Second, we were so excited for their session because these two went all out with their outfits! We send all of our couples a style guide before their session, and we LOVE when our couples go all out and get creative! After a beautiful modern dress for her first outfit, Emilia wanted to change it up with something vintage. For their second outfits, these two coordinated something straight out of the 50’s! And to go with both outfits, Emilia’s stylist was able to create a 2-in-1 hairstyle featuring a gorgeous updo for outfit #1, and after removing a few pins…voilà! Beautiful curls for her second outfit.

Lastly, we were so looking forward to their engagement session because Emilia and Andrew are just a joy to be around and we couldn’t wait to spend more time with them. We connected instantly over coffee when we first met with them to talk about their big day, so we knew this session was going to be a blast! 

Emilia and Andrew are beautiful people inside and out, and we could not be more thrilled to celebrate their marriage next month. We had so much fun hanging out with them, enjoying the beautiful Santa Monica Mountain landscape, and capturing the joy they have despite the uncertainty surrounding their wedding in just a few short weeks.

Emilia and Andrew, thank you for choosing us to walk alongside you guys through the ups and downs that have happened during your engagement season. We know that this is not how you pictured the weeks leading up to your wedding! But rain or shine, economic shut down or not, we will be there to celebrate with you and capture the memories of your biggest day. You two are getting married, and not even a pandemic can stop that!
