Traditional? No thanks.
Unconventional? Yes please.
Nothing about Stephanie and Andrew has been ordinary. From meeting online to raising up two incredibly beautiful and loving kids, these two lovebirds have been breaking the social norms since day one. She a banker and he a maintenance engineer, these two work their butts off to provide for their little family, and it came as a complete shock to Stephanie when Andrew proposed to her.
Emma and Jacob (the aforementioned incredibly beautiful and loving kids) have been waiting and waiting for mommy to have the same last name as the rest of the crew, so Andrew finally took the hint and made his move. However, Emma was quite disappointed she wasn’t there to see it, so Andrew was happy to propose to his now FIANCÉ just one more time for the kids.
Stephanie and Andrew’s San Martin private estate and Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve Morgan Hill engagement session is on the blog tonight, and I am so STOKED to be sharing Michael’s and my favorites with you all. Using my Engagement Session Style Guide, Stephanie planned PERRRRRFECT outfits that really show off her curves and his muscles (his pecs are her favorite), and really show just how beautiful their hearts are. Michael and I got to meet the family as they welcomed us to Stephanie’s father’s private San Martin estate with a beautiful and golden backyard filled with blooming trees, roses, a bronze gazebo and gorgeous sunlight. For sure a ONE-OF-A-KIND place (just like S + A). And, of course, Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve was our second spot. This Morgan Hill sunset location is one of my favorite hikes Michael and I have ever done and also the best for golden hour engagement sessions.
It was such a joy to spend the afternoon with these cuties and they are so excited to be married. After years of dating and raising their family, it’s about time. It’s been a journey this far, and it only keeps getting better!
