Rashana & Matt : Engaged : Laguna Beach, Ca

Rashana & Matt are my kind of people. They are inspired by interior design, architecture and fashion. Rashana loves blush as much as I do and gushes over floppy hats and amalfi tables as any girl should. Matt keeps the wine glasses full and keeps things light with jokes and silly expressions. I fell in love with them from our first consult and it’s no surprise that their engagement session made me fall harder. They are so easy with each other, so relaxed, so much fun to be around. Plus, they insisted I drink wine with them. Need I say more?

Rashana & Matt styled their session so perfectly. They brought the living room out into their lush yard and casually sat around sipping wine and laughing at random nothings. It was a true representation of all the things they love and, if I’m being honest, it was exactly what I needed to be inspired. I am incredibly excited about their September wedding and can’t wait to finally work with JL Designs. Many thanks to Kacee Geoffroy for her gorgeous hair and makeup skills. Rashana looked stunning!!
