Beautiful SECRET Garden Engagement // Irene + Jimmy

Irene contacted me about shooting her and Jimmy's engagement session near Berkeley, CA. I asked if she wanted to meet about shooting her wedding and she informed me that she was only looking for an engagement photographer because her wedding will be down in sunny Malibu, CA next year.

I knew I had to convince Irene to meet with me for a wedding consultation (with no pressure of booking) despite the traveling I would be doing for her wedding, because I truly believe, that if you have the ability to have your engagement and wedding photographer be the same person, do it! The relationship is key and what better way to start off the relationship than to have your photographer shoot the two of you on a smaller scale prior to the big day.

I'm happy to say she booked!

I received this after their engagement gallery was delivered yesterday :)


We are absolutely speechless!!! I knew I was a fan of your work right from the start, but my love for it is of course amplified with these pictures of us!! Thank you so much for the additional photos... there are SO many good ones to choose from!!

I definitely shed a few tears while going through them. I cannot thank you enough for capturing so many beautiful moments!! & cannot wait to work with you again during the wedding next year!! (:"
