Last year, I photographed a hilarious young senior from Scottsdale Christian Academy. He was funny, charming and just so handsome. Towards the end of our shoot, he mentioned his brother was proposing to his girlfriend in Hawaii soon. I almost drooled at the thought of the proposal under tall palm trees with the smell of plumerias floating around.
Soon after, I received the sweetest e-mail from the newly minted fiance Steven. I knew right away Steven was SO kind and that his fiance Chandis would be just as sweet as he is.
Steven and Chandis both attend Pepperdine University
and will be graduating this May. Malibu is a special place for the both of them so we met there for their engagement session. Chandis mentioned that she always saw a small private vineyard that caught her eye on the way home from church. We arranged to photograph there and couldn't believe the views when we finally arrived. OH.MY.GOODNESS it was drop dead gorgeous! Chandis and Steven are the kind of people you could spend all day with. You can tell immediately they are extremely genuine people who love with their whole hearts. I am so excited to be a part of their wedding next year in Idaho! I have no doubt it will be a beautiful day. To see a slideshow of the rest of the day, click HERE
When the sun hit the leaves, they looked almost like a perfect golden color.
You both are incredibly beautiful people. WOW.
Chandis, you are beautiful.
Chandis and Steven fell in love in Italy. Could they be any more adorable?!
This was the view of the hills behind the vineyard. Another gorgeous vineyard graces the mountains close by. Oh how I love southern California sunsets!
