Engagement photography is an essential part of preserving a couple’s most important moments in their memory. Whether it’s a milestone or anniversary, engagement photos are a beautiful ode to this wonderful chapter of a couple’s life.
One such example is Beatrice and JP, who had to postpone their wedding ceremony-reception three times, but still wanted to celebrate life and have fun images on their one-year wedding anniversary with engagement photography.
One of the most fascinating aspects of engagement photography is learning the love stories of my couples. I find it intriguing how the stars align when you meet the love of your life. Beatrice confessed that she even thought that the notion of marriage felt oppressive. And yet, she ended up proposing to JP! Their love story and proposal timeline is a perfect example of how engagement photography captures not just the present but the journey that led to it. Having lived together for a few years, Beatrice & JP’s love grew and evolved. Previously they had some conversation about marriage, but more in a sense of preparedness. In December 2018, Beatrice felt that the time to pop the question was right. JP is a great fan of Los Angeles and a history teacher. She took him to a bar at Union Station – The Streamliner, a location important to Los Angeles history and that JP would appreciate it historically. She wanted it to propose in a simple way because only then it would be meaningful for them both. He said YES! After celebrating with a few drinks, it was time to celebrate in their own way. They decided to head home and eat In-n-Out Burger to mark their new chapter. In their own words – “It was 100% us!”
Because Santa Barbara is special to them, the city where they met and fell in love, it was only natural to choose the Douglas Family Preserve in Santa Barbara for their engagement photography session. As a Santa Barbara photographer, I can safely say that this is one of the most scenic places to have your engagement photos taken. The beautiful coastline is bound to leave you awe-inspired! Beatrice wore a gorgeous polka dot navy dress and JP complimented her style with golden sand-toned pants and white shirt. Being their engagement photographer meant letting them be themselves and enjoy their time together with absolute joy. The views were surreal, weaving the perfect backdrops for Beatrice and JP’s precious moments together.
