Oh we just love this couple. Nick and Emily will be getting married in just a few weeks (woot!). We have been lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time with them…first at their consult with us, and then when they brought us to their tasting (…you guys, they brought us to their tasting for the wedding. Thanks for letting us help you try soooooooo much yummy food! Best meeting ever hahaaaa), and then their engagement session, which as you will see, was just bursting with pretty light and lots of cuddles and laughter. These two are just adorable together. They are 100% smitten. They encourage each other and are so affectionate with each other. Its like super cute. ha!

Here’s how they met, as told by Emily: “Nick and I met while I was working as a waitress at Red Robin while going to school to be a Registered Nurse. He was a customer taking a family friend out for mother’s day. They ordered drinks and asked if they could have a couple more minutes with the menu. It was one of my last tables before going home, so I was swarming their table waiting for them to decide so I could maybe get off early. I overheard them bicker at each other “you ask her” “no, you ask her.” I leaned in and asked “if there are any questions about the menu, feel free to ask me.” The family friend blurted “are you single?” I was so thrown off, I felt like it took me 30 seconds before I answered. I usually always tell customers no, but for some odd reason I said yes. I was so embarrassed, I took their order and practically ran away. After getting their food, my manager sent me home. So I went over to his table to tell them I was leaving and that the bartender would take over their table. Before leaving, I sneakingly gave the receipt with my phone number on it. I thought if they use the computer kiosk to pay instead of looking at the check- oh well- but if he did look at the receipt, then it was “meant to be”.
Long story short -I am so happy he did look!”

We are happy you looked too, Nick.

Well, hi! Bre-here! I am excited to share this special wedding here on the blog today. Meet Amanda and Tyler! I have known Amanda for a long time. What an honor it is for Luke and I to photograph weddings of couples we have such long histories with! Amanda and I grew up at the same church, and at the same schools from elementary school through high school. Our parents have been friends for years, and after so many years of life in the same circles, it was so fun to be a part of this momentous occasion in their family’s story. A little about the couple: Tyler went to college with Amanda’s best friend, and when the boys took a road trip to California, Amanda was introduced to the man she would someday marry! Yay for friends with cute college roommates. They remained long distance friends for a few years until Amanda moved to Chicago to become a flight attendant. Tyler happened to move to Chicago at the same time, and the rest is history!

They had a beautiful black and white wedding (something near and dear to Luke and I, since our wedding had the same palette), with all the elegance that Amanda had always dreamed of. Check out more from their Big Day below!

We talk about how sweet our clients are …like a lot… so this is going to sound like a broken record, but our clients are the best! Through all the planning, Carli has come to feel like a friend. They get married tomorrow, and we are stoked, but we will be sad when it is over too! Ok so enough about how we feel… Meet Carli + Jeff! They met online. They were matched with each other, and they both took a leap of faith to send a message to each other at almost the exact same time! Totally meant to be! Yay for meeting online!

We met up with them in Capitola last November (and I have been holding on to this session this whole time!!! …partly because we have toooooo much to share and too little time hahaha, and partly because we love to post these sessions close to the wedding!!) We had so much fun wandering this favorite little beach town and finding great light! We even got to hang out with a painter for a few minutes in a private little waterfront patio. So perfect.

Check out more from their engagement session below and stay tuned for sneak peeks from their wedding day tomorrow on our Instagram pages!
