I met Em & CJ in the summer of 2021 in Palm Springs, California. I traveled to the desert for an editorial shoot and Emily happened to be the hair dresser on site! I was absolutely mesmerized by their kindness & the scenery was out of this world. I had to photograph them. The next day, we headed into the city and snapped a ton of photos throughout Palm Springs and I knew I made lifetime friends with this couple.

Fast forward to summer of 2022, Emily & CJ became engaged and requested I fly back to California to document this special season of life for them. We took photos all day around Santa Barbara & Ventura CA which happens to be a special spot for both of them.

Congratulations, you two! I can't wait to see what the future has for both of you.

Here are some of my favorite images from their session.
