Our engagement photos!
It's been a busy month here in California. I arrived July 1 and going on day 21 of living out of my suitcase. By doing so, I'm actually realizing how much I don't need to survive that sits back in my condo in Florida. But despite the comments and text messages from friends who are wondering, no I haven't moved here. Just enjoying this beautiful state with my wonderful fiance.
Stephen and I just returned from a road trip up the California coast. I'm so used to Florida highways of road and trees, and that's all you see. It still fascinates me that here in California we can be on the highway and see the ocean and the gorgeous golden hills all at the same time.
We had a great time seeing friends along the way like Gavin & Erin Wade in Orange County, David Jay in Santa Barbara and Mike Larson in San Luis Obispo, who took our AMAZING engagement pictures. We had one request for our photos: the gorgeous golden California sunset in a field. Mike totally exceeded our expectations by renting a hot 1973 Porsche as we got his superstar shooting experience he gives his clients.
I love the picture above and how it captures the exact things we asked for, but more importantly, our laughter together. Whenever I'm asked to describe what I love most about Stephen, I always answer, "How much we laugh together." It's that kind of feeling where we just "get" each other and can be goofy together, and I know he is the one I want to laugh with the rest of my life.
Mike just blogged the rest of the pics from the session! Go check them out on his blog at:
