Vanessa + Robert: Engaged part 2!

I tried. I really, really tried. I was just going to post one, maybe two, images from Vanessa and Robert’s Santa Barbara engagement photos. It’s just that they were all so beautiful…

So, you might remember this fun couple from their Downtown Fullerton engagement session a few months back. They’d just booked me for their upcoming August wedding (via the Fall Great Bridal Expo) and I needed a couple to model for my awesome promo video shoot. Vanessa and Robert were happy to volunteer and we had a great time, so I knew that their full, legit e-sesh would be total awesomeness.

Vanessa was on Spring break last week, so we’d planned to do the session then, but at the last minute, I needed to head up to Santa Barbara to grab something for the bridal show. It turned out that these two had one of their first dates up that way years ago, and so we decided to do a Santa Barbara engagement session. Can you say holler? Seriously. Just wait. Vanessa and Robert… what a day we had. You two are full of love and sweetness toward each other. I love the way you laugh together, the way Robert always anticipates Vanessa’s needs even before she does, the way Vanessa looks at Robert like there is no other man in the world. You two are perfection, and it bled into every ounce of these beautiful pictures.

Our first stop was the Santa Barbara Courthouse, which was completely gorgeous!

After that, we headed to the Coronado Butterfly Preserve, where we found ridiculously amazing everything. Like seriously, the light was unbelievable. (So much so that I’m thinking I may force all of my couples to do engagement photos at the Preserve… just sayin’…)

Look at this. LOOK at it!!! It’s so beautiful, it hurts.

We did some fun things with Vanessa’s ring. I loved how these turned out!

No Santa Barbara engagement photos would be complete without at least a few pictures around State Street. We ducked into an alley for some dramatic light shots during our search for dinner, and I loved the way these turned out!
