Evelyn + Philip Engaged | Borrego Springs, CA

After 4 hours of driving and getting lost in the middle of the desert – near Mexico – we decided the best location to begin photographing an Engagement Session was right before our very eyes. Vastness of beautiful mountains, pure ivory sand, and wide open blue skies… What could be more perfect? I ended up spending the entire day with Evelyn and Philip and looking back, it truly feels like it was all a dream! 12 hours of laughter, endless conversations, and truly an admiration for such an incredible, beautiful, and talented young couple – these two are madly in love and made for each other! Evelyn and Philip are undoubtedly ONE OF A KIND individually and together. They met in school nearly 7 years ago. For Philip, it was love at first sight. For Evelyn, it was his confidence and charm that attracted her to Philip and his heart would eventually win Evelyn’s heart over. Their mutual love for the Lord brought them even closer than they could have ever imagined. Is it any wonder that when we look back at their photos, it feels like a dream? Their love radiates through each frame. They are breathtaking and their hearts shine through. Their respect for one another is admirable and a breath of fresh air. We can say SO much about Philip and Evelyn (and they know it!!) but without further adieu, we’ll allow their photographs to do all the speaking. Enjoy!

God bless,
Sammy

Emily + Flavio Engaged | San Juan Capistrano, CA

Emily and Flavio first met 7 years ago at a friend’s wedding. Soon after their brief encounter, Emily packed her bags and ventured off to a new state for an exciting school opportunity. Flavio decided he would pay Emily a visit and they haven’t looked back every since, and are now planning their very own Fall wedding later this year! We had so much fun during our time together for their Engagement Session at the Los Rios Historic District in San Juan Capistrano. Most of the afternoon was gloomy and full of clouds, but for a subtle few minutes towards the end of our Session, the sun peaked through the heavy clouds and the results are breathtaking. A beautiful couple plus radiating light? It was perfect and we couldn’t be more excited with the results! Below are a few of our favorite moments captured during our time together! Enjoy!

Warmly,
Sammy
