Leanne & Matt. Engagements.

If anyone knows the way to Leanne’s heart, they know it’s through her sweet dog, Nuchal. And on their first date, Matt didn’t bring Leanne flowers or chocolates to win her heart. He brought a toy for her dog. It was then that Leanne knew that Matt was a total keeper. They had been matched online at Eharmony & I have to say, they are such a great fit for each other. They make each other laugh & it didn’t take too long for them to realize that they wanted to be with each other forever. On a quick trip to Scotland for a wedding, Matt popped the question while in a botanical garden with a gorgeous sapphire ring. And Leanne didn’t even hesitate to say yes! They are getting married this year on the Cal Berkeley Campus & I feel so lucky to be part of their special day!

We had a great time wandering around Tilden Park & the Cal Berkeley Campus with their fun dog, Nuchal. Leanne & Matt love spending time in the great outdoors, fixing up their newly purchased home & just being together. Needless to say, they are simply happiest when they are together. And if anyone knows Leanne & Matt, they know what a great team they are together. They are fun, easy going & so much fun to be around! I am beyond excited to photograph their wedding in October!!! Leanne & Matt-thanks for the seriously fun engagement session! I can’t wait for your wedding… xoxo, marielle.


We headed over to the Cal Berkeley Campus to finish up their shoot…


Leanne & Matt have a darling three legged dog named Nuchal. He was so much fun to have on the shoot but by this point, I think he was pooped!

Which one is your favorite?

    Oh my gosh how to choose! I’m partial to shoe shots so I would have to say the one with the cute little pup laying on their legs!!….and the one with them sitting with their backs turned to the camera amidst all those leaves….genius!! You’re so good Marielle!

    I live them all. As expected, I’m partial to the one with nuchal, but the first is my favorite

    I like the one laying on the road and the one Yassi likes, but they all look great!
