When I first spoke with Jessie about her wedding, I knew right away how much fun it would be to capture their big day. We had so many things to talk about, and it all came with such ease and comfort. We chatted about our backgrounds as UC Santa Cruz banana slugs, and how we found our way to where we are now. Jessie and her super sweet fiance’ Brendan met me on Friday for our engagement shoot, and even though they were a bit unsure of how it might go…. all concern melted away when we began. They are so completely natural together, and so care free and open hearted that any inhibition about having their photos taken was transcended by their sweet connection. I love when this happens…. In fact, they told me if they had no expectations and if we got one good photo they would be happy. I think we did a pretty good job! These two are so much fun to be around, and I’m so excited to hang out with them again at their wedding this September. Here are just a few of my favorite photos from our shoot. Enjoy them!
