Karla + Brando {part 1: in the home}

I’m over the moon about these Camarillo engagement photos in Karla and Brando’s newly renovated and immaculately decorated home. Though our session actually had a second location, I was honestly too in love with these to pick just a few to show you, so I’m splitting this post up into two parts. First, the in-home Camarillo engagement photos before we move on to some beautiful sunset photos in the hills of Camarillo.

It’s worth mentioning that Karla and Brando should totally be professional designers. Their home is picture perfect (literally, I could have been there all day taking photos), and part of me really wishes I could convince them to go fix up another home and sell me theirs. Truly, that home is all things lovely and wonderful.

Speaking of lovely and wonderful, Karla and Brando… You know those couples who just are completely at ease with themselves and each other? Who know their place in the world, don’t lose their individuality, but also shape a future together? Karla and Brando. They are these things, and so much more, and no joke, I can’t wait for their January wedding at The Living Desert. Literally. I don’t want to wait, let it be January now, come on, let’s go.

Camarillo Engagement Photos

(See what I mean about everything being picture perfect? Every detail is worth a photo… I could have stayed forever.)

Earlier this year, I was at a workshop with some really amazing photographers who talked about getting atypical ring shots. I love getting that great ring photo… but it started me thinking about grabbing the shot in action, as part of the story. This ring shot, with Karla washing rainbow carrots, is my favourite of all-time ever because it truly is part of the story we were telling that day.

(But here’s the traditional ring photo, too. Don’t you love the design?)

Guys. This is Percy. Isn’t he the cutest? He was super excited for dinner, obviously.

That light, though!!!

More picture perfection. These two could have their own interior design company, I swear. But in all seriousness, how wonderfully intimate and personal are in-home photo sessions? I’m obsessed, and Karla and Brando ticked an item off my bucket list when they suggested doing in-home engagement photos.

We stepped out into Karla and Brando’s backyard for a little change of scenery, and per usual, if there’s a bougainvillea around, I have eyes for nothing else. I loved the colour it brought to their session!

Karla and Brando, I completely adore you two. Thank you for choosing me to tell your story, and for inviting me in to your home. You two are wonderful, Percy is delightful, and your home is beautiful. Now, bring on January! Oh wait, first we need to bring on part 2 of their Camarillo engagement photos, coming to the blog soon!
