Nick and Julie: Engagement


Nick sat across the dinner table and said, I knew she was 'the one' when we were 17. After meeting in science class during high school, Nick and Julie have remained by each other's sides through eight years of college, new nieces and newphews, passing of a parent, earning a Master's Degree, and buying a new home together. They've managed to fall into each other's footsteps and finish each other's sentences--with Julie painting each thought with brightly colored words, and Nick calmly getting to the point. Their love has withstood what others might consider set-backs and faced them together, trusting that through it all, they'll get through life hand-in-hand.

We met in Malibu yesterday at their favorite spot and spent the hottest day of California's winter along the Pacific Coast. They have a stunning wedding planned in Santa Barbara this June and I can't wait to spend the weekend with their amazing families.

Here are a few of my favorites...

Hi Frances! I wish I had more to do with that last shot, but, really, it's just natural beauty. I put my fisheye lens on (which really pulled out the curves of the sand), 200 iso, 2.8, used my in-camera settings, and suped it up a tad in photoshop. The day was just gorgeous, so that totally helps! :)
