Matt + Deborah… Engaged!

Deborah and I had been emailing back and forth for awhile before we finally met. It seemed like every time we scheduled the engagement session, we got rained out – which is no small feat for perpetually sunny southern California. It was really important for Deb to get some sunshine in her images… she wasn’t sure when she would be seeing it again.

You see, when I asked Deb about how Matt proposed to her, she said they had gotten in backwards. They met in school, became friends, and then became a couple. They had been together several years when suddenly Matt’s office moved and he found himself with an amazing job opportunity – provided he was willing to move to London. Matt knew he couldn’t go to live halfway across the world without Deb, so he asked her to come with him and share his home and his life in England. It wasn’t until a few weeks later that he gave her a ring and formally asked her to marry him. However it was presented, Deb and Matt were meant to be together.

So, steeling herself against a few years of cloudy skies and adverse weather, Deb really wanted to get some sunshine in her engagement photos. And after a few false starts, the weather didn’t disappoint. As you saw from the previous peek, the light was amazing that day. And the location was so cool… this semi-secluded canyon where you could see for miles – all the way to the ocean. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Thank you, Deb & Matt for such a wonderful afternoon. I can’t wait for the wedding!

Love them all!! :) » Married! // Matt + Deborah (Part I) - [...] Matt & Deb came all the way back from Jolly Old England to have their gorgeous wedding in sunny San Diego.  New to me was shooting on a beautiful San Diego Harbor Excursion yacht out at sea.  Not new to me was shooting with the uber-fabulous Dylan Mayer.  Because the yacht has a very finite amount of space, the intimate group of friends and family that attended the wedding made everything that much more meaningful.  It also meant that there was A LOT of dancing and celebrating going on to ring in the new couple as a newly-minted Mr. & Mrs.!
