Agoura Engagement Session


I had a wonderful intern last summer. Rachel was a great addition to my business and man did I miss her when she want back to school. And then she called a few months ago.  Not to come back and work for me but to tell me she got engaged! That’s almost even better! Especially since she wanted to hire me to shoot her wedding to Jonathan.

We had a blast at their engagement session.  They just had so much fun together and I just followed them around to capture it all. Oh, and Rachel brought props which are always fun.  Don’t be afraid to talk to me about stylizing your shoot since props can really add another dimension to your images. I can not wait for their summer wedding!
