James + Jen | Los Angeles, California Engagement Session

James has been a good friend of mine and my husband's for years now. He's been there for us through more than I care to admit, and has been one of the most steady friends to Jake. I'm forever grateful for who he is to us. 

When he introduced us to Jen, we knew there was something special about her. Their connection was dynamic and you can tell he was beyond smitten with her. They brought out the best in one another and came together as two whole people, lifting up one another. It was just natural with them from the beginning. Their body language, their words, their expressions, just blended seamlessly. So when he asked her for her forever, we weren't surprised. We were elated that one of our best friends found his perfect match. 

So when they asked me to be their photographer, I was so excited. This day was long, hot, and had its challenges in regards to long uphill walks, limited parking, and crowds of people. Yet somehow when I look at these photos, it's like it was just the two of them all day. 

Congrats you two, I'm beyond excited that we get to watch you two join together in marriage and the years of friendship ahead of us.
