Olyvia + Preston | Pasadena Engagement Session


Nate & I met in a classroom setting …

It was the first day of class… he came in late…

He was very well dressed for a college dude in photography school.

He had thick blonde hair and blue eyes ( the kind of dude every girl should date at least once in her college career! )

I smiled…

At the very least I had some eye candy for the session.


I’ll never forget seeing him for the first time.

As Bright Eye’s says so eloquently “This is the first day of my life, I think I was blind before I met you”

That’s true in my love story…

I don’t remember when the first time it was that I looked at most people in my life…the story gets blurry….

With Nate it’s crystal clear. I’ll always remember when we first met…what our first words were to each other…how we first fell in love…the crazy long hours we spent staying up talking…aiming (online chatting was totally our thing)

Anyway….I said all of that to say this:

Photographing Olyvia & Preston….took me straight back to when I first saw Nate.

They have that head over heels, crazy for each other, young lovers thing going on!

I couldn’t stop pushing the button!

We had so much fun adventuring through the allies of downtown Pasadena!

Finding secret places that we’ll probably never be able to find again!

Olyvia & Preston we wish you the best in all your wedding planning!! This season of engagement is so magical! With everything that needs to get done..its easy to just wish for October to be here already!

But Soak up every late night phone call…every ache from just wanting to be together every second of the day! Soon this time will pass and you’ll look back at it with rose-colored glasses

We hope these photos will always take you bring you back to this season of waiting in your life
