Sweetie pies Mayra and Victor are the kind of people you feel instantly comfortable with. They both have smiles that light up a room and the love for each other is so apparent. Mayra is a science teacher so what better place to take photos at than the iconic Griffith Observatory. It’s all about the chemistry people and these two have it. Yeah, science!

Congrats you two! So looking forward to the wedding coming up sooooon. xo, Rachel

How cute are Taylor and David? It’s kinda ridiculous how perfect these two are for each other. When I learned that they are huge music fans…total bonus. Cafe 50s was the perfect location to capture their love for each other and music. A 50s diner would be nothing without a jukebox filled with tunes from one of the best decades in music history. Plus, you know, milkshakes!

Next, we headed to Pasadena to get a few shots around downtown where David grew up. I love when my couples choose meaningful locations for them. It’s always inspiring for me.

I also included Taylor and David’s rad invite they made from our engagement session together. It’s a wedding “album”! LOVE it. It includes a sleeve, record invites and a playlist that represents their love and sounds of Southern California. Gah! Can not wait till the wedding.

Thank you so much again for choosing me guys. I loved taking “Pictures of You”. xo, Rachel

El Matador Beach is so romantic and picturesque.  It was the perfect setting and the sunset was delicious. Ashley and Kyle just totally went for it and enjoyed our time together. They even brought along their sweet shiba inu, Lexi, along to play.

So looking forward to their Apple Creek Ranch wedding coming up soon.el matador beach engagement-6863 el matador beach engagement-6987 el matador beach engagement-6990 el matador beach engagement-7029 el matador beach engagement-7068 el matador beach engagement-7035 el matador beach engagement-7087 el matador beach engagement-7128 el matador beach engagement-7271 el matador beach engagement-7244
