This darling couple is getting married in Newport Beach at the end of this month and I am so excited to be their photographer. I had a blast taking Lisa + Tim’s engagement pictures a few months back in Chino Hills. We went to this really cool park with a lake, lots of trees and open field area. Chino Hills was the perfect location between their Orange County home and my Foothill home. We had a great time talking and getting to know each other better. Lisa was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot a few years ago and I was thrilled when she chose me to photograph her wedding. I know their wedding will be so fun. They have the nicest friends so it will be a great time. Here is a peak into their engagement session in Chino Hills. Enjoy. xo

I just adored photographing this sweet couple. Tristan plays hockey for The Ontario Reign team and he and Brooke are just the nicest couple. They were having a destination wedding back east and hired me to photograph their engagement pictures here in So Cal.

We met up in one of my favorite outdoor locations. Tristan and Brooke were so comfortable in front of the camera and with one another which made for a great photo session.

I look forward to watching Tristan play hockey for the Ontario Reign with Brooke cheering him on from the stands.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from this gorgeous couples engagement session. Enjoy.

Be prepared for total cuteness. I know, I am late on posting this engagement session as I took these last fall, however, this couple just had their wedding so I had to make sure I posted this super cute DIY ranch engagement session up at Sweet Pea Ranch in Upland.

I took Mady + Steven up to one of Upland’s most rustic locations. Sweet Pea Ranch is adorable. Tess, the owner is so wonderful. I love photographing weddings with Tess and her team at the ranch. They turn out so great. She gave us permission to photograph this couples engagement session at the ranch and we had so much fun. It was a cold, rainy, fall day, but that did not stop us. Mady and her family came prepared with the cutest DIY tent, props, signs, benches, pennant strings… It was so much fun. Morgan and I had a ball taking photos of Mady + Steve. We were dodging the rain and the cold and it made for amazing engagement pictures. we set up our tent in a vacant field down the street form the ranch and it turned out so good.

We took so many wonderful photos, so check this post out. Stay tuned for a sneak peak of Mady + Steve’s wedding which I will be posting soon.

Have fun viewing this adorable Sweet Pea Ranch engagement session. xo Michelle

Oh my goodness, This couple is just the cutest. I just fell in love with them the moment I met them. I was thrilled that they chose me to be their engagement and wedding photographer.

I met up with Marie + Tyler at their super sweet Riverside home with their lovable Great Dane Duke. It was straight out of a magazine and honestly, there were way too many photo spots. I just was in picture heaven.

Every nook and cranny of this quaint Riverside home was perfect. I cant wait to come back there and hang out with them having a cup of tea or a glass of wine.

These engagement pictures are oh so cute. Just like this couple.

Stay tuned for this couples wedding happening this weekend at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills It is going to be incredible.

Enjoy this sneak peak of the sweetest Riverside couple around.

Oh my goodness, Dylan and Timothy are just the sweetest. I fell in love with them the moment I met them and I am so grateful that I get to be their wedding photographer. This adorable couple is getting married tomorrow at Mount Palomar Winery in Southern California’s wine country of Temecula.

We had the best engagement session in Oak Glen, California. It was such a fun day in the pple country of Oak Glen. Mark and I met up with Dylan and Timothy in Oak Glen and we found the sweetest locations to take their engagement pictures. I do have to tell you we did have to tress-pass to get that super cute tractor photo but hey, it was worth it. Good thing we skipped out of their before the giant, barking dog got a hold of us. lol.

Oak Glen is simply gorgeous and we had the most beautiful light on this foggy day. Quite the contrary to the heat we will experience tomorrow in wine country at the beautiful Mount Palomar Winery. It’s all good. We will have the best time ever. Just look at these two, how could you not have fun.

Stay tuned to see more of this adorable couple. Until then, enjoy these sweet engagement pictures from Oak Glen, California’s own apple country! xo

Angela and Tim are too cute. They were so easy to photograph and we had so much fun hangining out in San Dimas. Angela actually grew up in San Dimas so it was the perfect location for their engagement photos. We went to a couple of my favorite locations and got some great photos. I really enjoyed getting to know Angela and Tim better and so glad to now call them friends. Here is a sneak peak into this couples San Dimas engagement session. Enjoy. xoxo

Alyssa and Ben’s wedding is almost here. We took these engagement pictures with their sweet Husky down in Newport Beach at Crystal Cove. It was a gorgoeus day in Orange County for photos. Alyssa and Ben are so caring and kind, they met while attending college at UCLA. They are both super sweet, a bit shy and madly in love with one another. They love the beach, especially Crystal Cove, they also enjoy playing with their Husky and spending time with their family. I am really looking forward to their June wedding. Here is a sneak peak at their engagement pictures at Crystal Cove.. Enjoy. xo

How darling is this DIY Tent engagement session. April and Craig or The Wonghead’s as their friends call them were so fun to work with. We honestly laughed and giggled during this entire session. April and Craig love the outdoors. We discussed what type of engagement pictures they were wanting and we came up with this DIY camping style theme. I chose the perfect outdoor location and the weather was perfect. There are so many great photos from this engagement and I just wanted to share a few with you. Tomorrow, this adorable couple is tying the knot at Strawberry Farms Golf Club! I cannot wait to celebrate with them.. xo

My oh My how I love this sweet couple. Their smiles are magnetic and their love is contagious! I am so thrilled to be photographing their wedding at the end of the month at Lake Oak Meadows in Temecula. Since they are tying the knot (literally, see the photo in this post) they were able to use Lake Oak Meadows for their engagement pictures.

We had so much fun hanging out and talking about the wedding. Dana and Danny are so positive and filled with love so I know their wedding will be perfect.

Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session. Stay tuned in a few weeks for a sneak for at their Lake Oak Meadows Wedding pictures too!
