Malibu, California Engagement Session from Defining Moments by Sheri Marie

The best way to end the weekend is by treating yourself to the most romantic, sweet, and adorable engagement session from Defining Moments by Sheri Marie. As you are settling at your desk with your morning coffee, just prepare yourselves for the simple elegance that surrounds this soiree.  I absolutely adore a couple who gets a little creative with their engagement session. I have a “thing” for picnics, and when you throw in a couple of love birds, and an amazing photographer to capture it all, I am just in love. This sweet combo is the perfect engagement session. What can be better?  I am head over heels with this couple’s style, the romantic California setting, and their cute picnic. Ready to take a look in at this couple’s lovely picnic?























From Defining Moments by Sheri Marie…

Meet Vanessa Fontana & Ben Hanley. Vanessa is from Alaska and Ben is from Washington State. They met in High School when Vanessa moved to Washington State. This couple is very hip, elegant, and loves everything vintage. So they wanted their engagement session to represent every aspect of their personalities and what their wedding will be like.  Vanessa and Ben wanted two different scenes. One for a vintage picnic and the other one for some fun sunset shots. Vanessa loves everything vintage, but yet she has this elegant side to her as well. So she wanted her picnic theme to reflect all the inspiration photos that she had been searching for on Pinterest. They also wanted a nice location that was close to the beach.  We chose the Malibu State Park and El Matador Beach as the perfect locations.

 From the moment Vanessa emailed me wanting me to do her engagement photos, we had an instant connection. She was very excited that I was available to do her photos and excited that we had the same style and vision for her session. So that made me even more excited to work with her and Ben because we were all on the same page. Spending the afternoon with these two was a ton of fun! You can definitely see the love these two share between the two of them, as it just radiates off. Their love is contagious! The whole shoot I was wishing my husband was there so I could just give him a big kiss, haha.  Ben and Vanessa are very down to earth, chill and fun! We were all laughing and joking around all day, which made for a great time together!

They will be tying the knot on July 27, 2013 in Washington State.
