So very excited to share this beautiful, laughter filled Santa Barbara engagement session with the best couple. We met up at the Douglas Nature Preserve near the mesa in Santa Barbara and immediately hit it off. Katelyn and Kruger are so easy going, hilarious, and completely in love. They are also insanely ambitious, driven and compliment each other so well. Together they travel, drink margaritas, bungee jump, laugh a lot and have even summited Mount Whitney (no big deal, I know). We clicked instantly and chatted about everything from wedding plans to their adorable golden retriever pup.
They were so silly, laid-back, and down to love on each other that it truly made my job easy. When I first chatted with Katelyn on the phone she told me how silly her and Kruger were together, and how she really wanted that captured in their engagement photos. I would definitely say we got all of their silliness plus some, and I’m so grateful to have met these two. Their Santa Barbara engagement session was the perfect way for us to get to know each other before their upcoming wedding, as I live in Ventura and they both live in Los Angeles. The Douglas Nature Preserve was a perfect spot with beautiful warm light, ocean views, and bright bougainvillea (one of my favorite flowers to shoot!). My heart is so so full after this session and I cannot wait for their upcoming wedding at the Belmond El Encanto in March.
Katelyn and Kruger have since been married in a beautiful, intimate Santa Barbara ceremony. For more of their story and their gorgeous wedding check out the link down below!
