Engagement Photos at Home: Tori + Kate

breakfast-engagement photos

I just love Tori + Kate’s engagement photos. They recently moved to LA from the east coast, so they asked their photographer Adrienne Gunde to capture them in their new home together. I love their sweet kitchen – and the matching aprons! They also got a few photos with their three cute dogs. :) After capturing some photos in their new home, they walked around their neighborhood of Silverlake. Congrats to Tori + Kate and welcome to LA!

Oh, and she is vegan! awesome! check out her work if you are interested: http://www.mcfarlanddesigns.com
