We love Brooke and Andrew. When they first met us at our home studio, we knew right away that we were a perfect fit! Their carefree attitude as well as admiration for art and creativity, really stood out to us. We discussed ideas for their Engagement Session and had so much fun through the process. Last week we reunited in Malibu at a beautiful trail. Following the trail, we went to a beach nearby and finished off their Session as the sun slowly set. It was perfect. During our Engagement Session, it felt like we were photographing friends rather than new “Clients.” I remember driving home with John after photographing Brooke and Andrew, I glanced over at John and said: “Can you believe this is our job?”They were such a joy to be around, and we loved every minute of their Session. Below are a few of our favorite moments from our time together. We truly look forward to capturing their Wedding day on July 4th!:)
Brooke: Andrew and I met in 2004 through a mutual friend when we were both just 16 years old. Upon our first meeting, Andrew was immediately interested in me but I couldn’t get over his baggy pants, basketball jerseys, and ridiculous slicked back hair. Regardless of my initial disinterest, Andrew pursued me and ended up winning my heart through hours of AIM chat sessions and a few trips to the movies. Our love developed over the years and has turned into the greatest love that I can ever imagine to be possible.
Preparing for the e-session: Everything that we used in our engagement photo shoot had a meaning behind it. We used a picnic scene which was special to us since Andrew prepared a picnic for my first birthday that we celebrated together. Cupcakes and macarons were incorporated into our shoot because of our mutual love for sweets treats and cruiser bikes were a necessity because we must have rented bikes at least 50 times while we were dating. The beach location was especially significant to us because Andrew asked me to be his girlfriend on a beach in Malibu and then later asked me to be his wife on a beach in Maui.
