Connie & Mark. Engagements.

They met while in college. Two bright and adventurous individuals ready for all that  Cal Berkeley had to offer. What they didn’t expect was to find the person that they would spend the rest of their lives with. Their paths crossed at the right time and through the course of dating, they realized they were completley perfect for eachother and completley in love. One night at Connie’s parents restaurant, Mark bent down on one knee (in front of both his and her parents!) and asked Connie to be his wife.

She said yes.

 And neither of them have ever been happier.

Connie & Mark are the kind of people who you want to be BFF’s with. They are both intelligent, fun, and just easy to talk to. They are the kind of people who make everyone feel good about themselves. They are genuine. And that’s why I was so lucky to spend a gorgeous Sunday afternoon with them for their engagement session. Because the Cal Berkeley campus is where they met and fell in love, that’s where we headed for their session. Connie & Mark-thank you for being so, so fabulous. I can’t wait for your wedding in July! As always, you can view their entire event and order prints HERE.



I’m pretty darn sure this is my favorite.photo.ever.




I love, love, LOVE the detail of this shot……

    These look great Marielle. You have a great eye for taking shots from angles that make them unique and not so “typical”. Nice work!
