What better way to head into the beautiful weekend ahead than with a super gorgeous + whimsical e-session, captured by the talented Katie Shuler! Maria + Phil were inspired by GWS to create a romantic + one-of-a-kind environment for their engagement photos. Love to hear that! :) They worked with some of the fab existing elements at the location – like the awesome views , boho teepee, and donkey (named Stella!) – and then added in a few touches of their own, like big bunches of seasonal flowers, fun textiles, and, of course, great attire! They wanted the setting to represent the two of them as well as Maria’s Ecuadorian culture. The end result has such a special + magical feel. Let’s hear a few words from the beautiful bride-to-be:
When it came to our engagement photos, we knew we wanted them to reflect our journey together. We ended up coming across Great Spirits Ranch in Malibu, and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for our photos. We were both amazed at how much it reminded us of Ecuador–from the mountain views and colorful decor, to the llamas and donkeys that live there. We didn’t want to leave! Katie did such a beautiful job capturing that experience for us. These photos symbolize not just this period in our lives, but also the beginning of our love story.
So dreamy, right?! Thanks again to Katie Shuler for the stunning photos + wishing lots of love + happiness to Maria + Phil!
Happy weekend, friends!
