Shana + Rishi :: Engagement Session :: Laguna Hills

Those that follow my blog, FB, and IG pages KNOW just how excited I am to photograph Shana Kalaria & Rishi Ardeshna’s wedding next month.  I get to spend the weekend with the Kalaria family yet AGAIN… just 16 months after their first daughter, Sonia, tied the knot!  You might remember my stunning couple Sonia & Ravi from last year’s SEVEN wedding events we covered.  The Kalaria’s have two gorgeous daughters and I couldn’t be more happy to be a part of BOTH of these wonderful milestones in their lives.  THANK YOU Kalaria family for the honor and trusting us with both of your gems!

I have to admit, I was super bummed when I initially heard I wasn’t going to shoot Shana and Rishi’s engagement session.  They both live in Texas, completing their residency in medicine (Plastic Surgeon & Anesthesiologist) and couldn’t get days off simultaneously for the photo session.  But Shana was determined she wanted me to shoot it, we went back and forth with a few date options, and were able to luckily work out a time for them to fly in for their session!!  I was ecstatic!!  Shana requested something unique yet beachy… rustic yet regal… and let me pick the locations.  She entrusted me, so I had to deliver… and I couldn’t think of a better spot than the scenic hillside overlooking Laguna Beach.  Not to mention, I knew her beautiful red gown would perfectly complement the lush greens and blue skies!

I’m beyond words… at just how much I love the way these images came out!  It was uber difficult narrowing down just a handful to blog.  Shana & Rishi, thanks for being so amazing, entrusting me, and going along with whatever I threw your way.  XoXo  T-30 days and counting!
