Orcutt Ranch Engagement Session | Ciera + Stephen

Steven and Ciera were such an enjoyable couple to be around.  So easy-going, yet certain of their desires.  They had just been engaged a couple of days when we shot their engagement and Ciera had already gotten her dress, chosen their colors, and sealed the venue, etc!  

This shoot took place in West Hills as we ventured throughout the Valley just after a few rain-showers which finally gave us some green out here - so we took advantage of the rolling hills!

Enjoy, and stay tuned for pictures of their wedding coming up in August!

Zach + Samantha Lunde | Thousand Oaks

Conejo Valley Church of Christ | Thousand Oaks, CA

This is what a former ballet dancer and a youth pastor falling in love looks like.  The gracefulness and contagious smiles that Samantha exudes is unexplainable.  I've (Kim) been friends with Samantha since junior high.  I felt like a part of me was missing when she left to go to a different school during early high school. She never failed to encourage me with positive thoughts and sore abs from all of the laughter.  She had such a bright smile, that I knew it couldn't get any bigger.

Then I met Zach at their bridal shower.  And her smile was different.  It was glowing with a different kind of glow.  It was oozing happiness and pure joy - she found her soul-mate.  They were like two peas in a pod, and I'm pretty sure that's what you'll see when you look at the photos from their beautiful summer wedding!
