When (you) fall in love… {santa barbara, california engagement photography}

When (you) fall in love… It will be forever… -Nat King Cole

As I was editing this session, these song lyrics kept playing over and over in my head.

I’ve known Diane since… freshman year of high school?  I can’t remember it’s been so long hehe… but I do know this; Diane is head over heels in love and her beau the same.

I’ve had the giddy pleasure of witnessing these two start from friendship, to dating, to hanging-on-the-edge-of-my-seat excitedly waiting for engagement news.  And when that news came, my smile and my heart burst with over-joyous celebration and love.

Soooo… when Diane asked me to be her engagement and wedding photographer, I didn’t hesitate for one second to say, YES!!  ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY, OF COURSE!! 🙂

We had a great time hanging out together in Santa Barbara… from shopping for venues, eating, goofing off with the family for photos… I loved every minute.  Thank you, Aaron and Diane for including me in your process.  Love you lots!!

Without further ado… meet my dear friend, Diane and her bonus family Aaron and Nolan! 😀  ENJOY!!
