Kristen and Blake met as students at UC Davis, and immediately bonded over their mutual love of Harry Potter, The Beatles, Disney, and the 49ers (all things that we bonded with them on too!). They were just friends for 8 years before they started dating, and then finally realized how perfect they were for each other!
Over the summer, they went on a 17-day vacation to Italy and Greece. On the first full day of their trip, Blake popped the question on the private dock of their hotel – right on the grand canal in Venice! They got to enjoy the remaining days of the vacation celebrating their engagement, and we had the best time capturing this season for them once they got back!
We shot at the gorgeous 17 Mile Drive, to incorporate the area that they’ll be tying the knot at in July! The last spot we shot at though, was probably the most special, as it was the very bench these two first told one another that they loved each other!
We’re so excited to shoot with them again in the summer of 2020 at The Perry House in Monterey!
