Marisa tells us, “We love these two! Kelly and Joshua met at Starbucks over 3 years ago after noticing each other several times and finally working up the courage to say hello. :) They got got engaged at sunset on the beautiful sands of Laguna Beach in November 2012. They have so much fun together and we love spending time talking with them; in fact, at our first meeting we spent almost three hours talking, coincidentally enough, at a Starbucks!”

“For their engagement session we went to the beautiful Heritage Park in Santa Fe Springs which features a historic greenhouse, windmill and orange grove. It is an absolutely gorgeous location! When we were talking about what kind of feel they wanted for their engagement session, Kelly inspired me to create a custom flower crown, just for our session! She was our first client to wear one and we are so excited to be providing them as a prop option to our brides.”

“We also designed their wedding invitations and spent some time writing the letters in the same font as their invitation on one of my favorite props: the chalkboard heart. We love creating a consistent look across the paper products and photos we create for our clients according to their tastes and vision!”
