Chelsea & Parker

Last weekend, Brad and I had the best time hanging out in Santa Monica with Chelsea and Parker. We got to celebrate their upcoming wedding in April with some engagement pictures. These two were so much fun to spend the evening with! Chelsea is a teacher and Parker is a musician…not just any musician though…he gets to jam out with the preschoolers and Paxton is already a big fan of his music. You should check it out if you’ve got a little one at home and you’re as tired of listening to Elmo as I am. These are really cool tunes!  www.parkerbent.com

We went back and forth a bit about where we should take their engagement pictures because I really wanted them to have a good time and I wanted the pictures to be special. In the end, we decided to stay close to home. I have to say that the location and the light couldn’t have been more perfect. We started by visiting the coffee shop where they had their first blind date. Then we went back to their place and got some images in their yard in front of the tree where Parker proposed…like I said, perfect! And since they love to ride their bikes, we decided to make those a part of the shoot too. It really was a blast!

Enjoy this sneak peek of your images, you two 🙂  We can’t wait for your big day!!!
