Laura & Dave. Engagements.

She first heard about him from her friends. Laura & her girlfriends were all in the car, driving on their way to pick Dave up for a camping trip with a group of friends. On the drive, her friends chatted about Dave. They talked about how fun he was, how he was such a great guy & as they talked more & more about Dave, Laura perked up. He did sound pretty fun & pretty incredible from what her friends had said. During the two week trip, Laura & Dave were able to spend time together…they spent time talking & getting to know each other better. At the end of the trip, they realized that there was something there. Laura’s girlfriends were right: there was something about Dave. When they returned back home, they went on their first official date & their relationship blossomed from there. Their relationship continued to blossom & over time they realized that they didn’t want to be with anyone else! They are getting married next month & I’m so excited to be a part of their celebration! Let me rephrase that-I am BEYOND excited to be part of their celebration!

Laura & Dave are dynamic. Adventurous. Free spirited. Easy going. And totally head-over-heels in LOVE. They love to pack up their bar-b-que, head out to the desert & watch the sunset together. They love gardening, driving their beach cruisers around & just being together. Simply put, they are the happiest when they are together, no matter what they are doing. When I met up with them for their engagement session, I asked Laura & Dave what they love about each other. Laura gave the most sincere, sweetest response ever. She said, “I never thought I would ever find anyone who was perfect. But Dave is so perfect at everything & so perfect for me.” When you talk to Laura about Dave, her eyes literally twinkle. She smiles all the way down to her toes. And when Laura talks, Dave is peaceful & happy. It’s obvious that they are two of a kind & that they are just meant to be together.

Laura & Dave-thank you so much for coming out to San Francisco for these photographs! I had so much fun getting to know you both! I can’t wait for your wedding day-if it’s anything like the two of you, I know it will be a celebration filled with fun, laughter & a lot of fabulousness….xoxo, marielle.

This photograph might be one of my favorites EVER. It makes me sooooooo happy. I love it!


These two are some of my favorites from their session. Laura, you are amazingly gorgeous!

Which one is your favorite? I’d love to hear about it! 🙂
