Nicole + Jose Romantic Engagement Leo Carrillo State Park, Malibu, Ca

Oh you guys, words cannot express how honored I am to be working with these two beautiful souls. They are so kind, down to earth and so so amazing!!

They are having their wedding celebration later this month (and my friend Sarah from Kindred Events will be coordinating!), I can’t wait to show you all the pretty!

For now, enjoy some of my favorite moments from their engagement session at Leo Carrillo State Park in Malibu, Ca. We started with the wind in their hair and ended with sand between their toes, it was the best!

P.S. I made this special bouquet for Nicole, she absolutely loved it – which made me oh so happy!

A few words from Nicole…

How did you meet?

We met in the 8th grade. We were each other’s “first” boyfriend/girlfriend back then. We separated when we started different high schools. Eight years later, we reconnected and rekindled old feelings.


Why did you choose Leo Carrillo State Beach and what do you love about it?

The beach has always been our favorite place to spend time together. One of our first dates was going to the Santa Monica Pier. Whenever we plan trips together, we always gravitate toward beach destinations. Our favorite place is Laniki Beach in Oahu. We enjoy the simpleness and relaxing feeling.

What is your most valuable piece of advice you can share with future couples planning their engagement/portrait session?

When in doubt or unsure, we trusted our photographer for advice. Vanessa helped us pick a location that was most like our couple style.

What is your favorite thing about the wedding process?

Our favorite part of the entire wedding process is planning a celebration with our family and friends. We love being married so far, and we can’t wait to celebrate the love we created.

Congrats Nicole + Jose, can’t wait for your wedding celebration!!
