Had a fun fun day shooting engagement photos for my friends Ellie and Jared and their son Ambrose!
We met at Garden's of the World in Thousand Oaks, only to be turned away as we didn't know we needed a "reservation" to shoot "posed" pictures ~ that's okay... everything happens for a reason!
We wound up at the Chumash Indian Museum and Park just up the road, and it turned out to be a much better venue for this hiking, outdoor life-style family!
Everyone was maybe a little self conscious at first, but quickly relaxed and had fun.
We did some photos of the whole family, some goofy fun shots thrown in, and then we got
some beautiful shots of the happy couple. I can see the love in their smiles and in their laughter, and i hope that is what they see too when they look back on these photos in the years to come.
They have a special plan for these photos at the wedding and reception, so we are keeping them under wraps until then...
(but here's a sneak peek)
Check back after September 27 for Ellie and Jared's page!
