I first met Liz and Matt getting Sanchos Tacos by the beach AND they brought their dog, so yeah you could say it was love at first sight for me. For this shoot we walked around downtown Santa Ana where Liz grew up, stopped into a brewery (keep reading for why), and ran around an empty rooftop. I love them and I loved this shoot and I love the things they’ve chosen to prioritize in this life. I just get the overwhelming feeling that all they need is each other and it seems as though they are in a constant pursuit of that. Also, they met bartending, so that’s pretty awesome. Since beer is a big part of their relationship, we grabbed some ice cold brews and relaxed on the brewery porch before running around town shooting. Liz is this beautiful burst of joy and energy, but the kind of energy that simultaneously makes you feel so at peace in her presence. Matt is working his booty off in PT school, and it also blew me away how sweet and thorough he was in caring for Liz, just in the small amount of time we had together. He has this humility about him, not needing to talk about himself, just the knowledge that Liz deserves the world. Walking around the town was soooo easy with them, and the photos we captured were MAGICAL because their chemistry is FIRE. Check out this SEXY and sweet urban engagement session!
