Kendall + Michelle :A trip to Rancho Murietta!

Get ready for a couple of beautiful smiles! Kendall has a couple friends who are up at the golf course regularly and enjoy it a lot up there. This spring day was beyond perfect! They loved that there were so many beautiful places to go. We stopped by a gorgeous creek and loved all the flowers starting to bloom!Rancho Murieta Country Club Engagment Photo 002Rancho Murieta Country Club Engagment Photo 001Rancho Murieta Country Club Engagment Photo 003Rancho Murieta Country Club Engagment Photo 004

Jonas + Vanessa : love and a big red balloon

I hope you are prepared for a lot adorable fun! Jonas and Vanessa have been dating for a couple years now and have been head over heels since the beginning. One thing though that they both wanted in their lives were some furry friends. As soon as Vanessa had a chance she was on the hunt for their first one. In came little Colnel Sanders. He was not enough though. Jonas had his sights set on something a little bigger. This hunt took a while though as it was really important to them to rescue a great dane! After weeks and weeks of hunting Jonas found DOUG! You know Lisa and I loved the name, how could we not being such crazy UP fans. Any dog named Doug is awesome. This guy though is a big, and I mean big, teddybear. What was so fun is these photos are in their backyard. No, not their literal back yard but at the end of their street is the American River, so it is their backyard. This is where they walk the dogs, where they escape from every day life, and where they go to just be together. We could not have had a more amazing time getting to know these two in a place so fun and close to them.Red Balloon Engagment Photos The Goodness 003aRed Balloon Engagment Photos The Goodness 001Red Balloon Engagment Photos The Goodness 005a

So we know the dogs are adorable, but Jonas and Vanessa picked out some of the best outfits for their day. As a bow tie man, I was thoroughly impressed with Jonas. Plus Vanessa’s adorable dress was super cute! That was not even the best part. We show up and there was their big red balloon. We were really excited as they want some of these at the wedding and were thrilled to incorporate this into their engagement session!

Keith + Danielle : it only took a fortune cookie!

 

So the first thing you should know is how these two started dating. One day Keith went over to Danielle’s with chinese food and a movie. He had bought a fortune cookie beforehand and taken out the fortune and replaced it with his own. It was to ask her out to his fraternity’s formal. After dinner Keith ever so carefully offered a bowl of fortune cookies to Danielle but she declined. Keith persisted and still Danielle declined. He had to actually put it in her hand to have her take one. Luckily though for Keith she opened the cookie and everything started to make sense. Thank goodness the fortune brought them both some very good luck and an extremely sweet relationship.

They also told us about this mural they loved in downtown. Funny thing was that same mural was one Lisa and I loved and had always wanted to go to for photos. Well when these two told us they loved the mural we had to stop by before we headed to CSUS. The place where this whole relationship started.Capital park CSUS engagement 005 photoCapital park CSUS engagement 006 photoCapital park CSUS engagement 007 photo

CSUS…since they met here through their fraternities it was very important to end at Sac State. It was such a nice evening and we could even see the moon! Capital park CSUS engagement 008 photoCapital park CSUS engagement 009 photoCapital park CSUS engagement 010 photo
