Malibu California Engagement Session
Samantha Hiller is a special bride for me. You see I photographed her lovely sister KiKi’s wedding a little over a year ago. It was a 2-day event and got to know the family pretty well. Sam + Drew were so cute at the wedding. They were not engaged yet but it was pretty obvious that day was just around the corner. When I got the call about photographing their wedding this year my heart just exploded. There is no bigger compliment than when someone has experienced a wedding weekend with you, received the full gallery, and decided they want to work with you. I just love it! Sam + Drew are my spontaneous couple, they text me on Wednesday and said “can we fly into LA from Arizona and shoot our engagement photos this weekend?” I just love that. With only 2 days to plan for your shoot that doesn’t give you that much time to stress right? Sam went shopping and text me a photo of a few dresses. This white dress was one of them and boy and I glad we went with this dress. OMG, it photographs so well. The designer is ALC here is the link for the dress. I am actually ordering it today for myself because it’s a classic and this is a dress you can wear a hundred times. Her hat is Lack of Color Here is the link for it. I was thrilled that Sam + Drew were able to bring the whole family. Little Dash won my heart the minute I met him and was the best little boy during our shoot. Mav, the fur baby did a great job too. I knew going into the shoot we needed to capture family photos as well as engagement photos. We had a few obstacles, like the wind and chasing the light but in the end, it turned out perfectly. A few of my favorite shots are the black and white of all four of them walking in the field + the super fun moment of Sam, Drew, + Dash at the beach. Ya’ll I love my job so much. When you think about it. Dash will never be this age again, and so many things will change over time but the memory of this day and this time will last forever.
