Austin + Shannon Engagement | Santa Monica, CA


They met at Pepperdine Law School where they were on the same debate team. Since then, they’ve both graduated and are successful lawyers in the LA area, and happily live with the other half of their cute little family - their puppies Scout and Indiana! 

Austin's my cousin, however there are a good amount of years between us. I've always looked up to Austin as he's led the way through all the life milestones, and have always known him to be extremely hard-working, kind, and passionate, especially when he gets talking about anything that brings out the inner lawyer in him. ;)

Shannon entered Austin's life around 4 years ago, and we all knew pretty early on, she was something special. I had the chance to finally meet her at family Christmas in 2015, and can I just say I couldn't be more thrilled that we get to officially welcome her into the family in less than a month from now?! Shannon is so loving, brilliant and lights up any room she walks into. Since I've known Austin my whole life, it's been so fun to see how Shannon really brings out such a fun-loving and playful spirit in him through their relationship! 

I had the best time shooting their engagement session while we wandered their local dog park with Scout and Indi, and then ended at Santa Monica Pier where the coast had a pretty heavy blanket of haze over it, but made for some perfect golden hour glow light! 

I seriously can't wait to get these two back infront of my camera and to celebrate their big day with all of our family at Lake Tahoe! Austin and Shannon, thank you for trusting me to capture your day! I couldn't be more excited. See you next month!
