Kyle + Ximena // Engagement

For a post as special as this one, I truly have no words that would be able to describe how excited I am to FINALLY share these photos with you.

The reason why this session is so special is because I got to document my older brother and sis-in-law's engagement and capture this time in their lives! Kyle is the last one of us to get married which marks a new journey for our family of all of us being married and growing with our significant others. Just re-looking through these photos is a huge blessing getting to witness the love Kyle and Ximena have for one another and how that love continues to grow.

These two are so fun loving, easy going and love to adventure together. It is so apparently obvious that the way they love each other is edifying and goofy as well as effortless. Plus if you could only hear Ximena's Peruvian accent you would love it as much as I do.

As we were planning out their engagement photos I really just wanted to capture something that they would normally do if they went on a date day. They were telling me about a place they've been hiking before out in San Diego and how much they loved it so Palomar Mountain became a perfect spot to get them in their element. As we hiked, set up a hammock, hung out and watched the sunset from the tops of the mountain it was nothing short of a blast getting to photograph Kyle + Ximena.

It is always an honor getting to photograph my family, it means more to me than I would ever be able to say so this day will forever be etched in my book as one of my favorite sessions! I hope you love them as much as I do!
