Lovelies, we are kicking off this morning with quite the treat – a gorgeous, glowy engagement session in the rolling hills of Los Olivos! Between the stunning couple, the absolutely perfect lighting, and Joel Serrato's always breathtaking photography, to say we're smitten is an understatement. Lucky for us, there's more where this came from! We're sharing these lovebirds' epic destination wedding weekend all day long. From the welcome party to the main event, you won't want to miss it! From the bride... I think all couples have an idea of what they hope their engagement pictures will be like. The day of our pictures, we were kind of nervous but also very excited to meet Joel. Minutes after meeting Joel, and right before we were supposed to depart for the first picture location, I tripped down all of his stairs. I broke the ice, his wine glass, and almost my hand, but despite it all, Joel immediately made me feel calm and relaxed. Things quickly turned around, and he made the afternoon so fun and captured some great pictures that we absolutely love. Our biggest take away from our engagement photos was that it was the perfect way for us to feel comfortable with Joel before our wedding. Once we were reunited at our wedding in Lana’i, we were very familiar with Joel’s “smile kiss” and are thrilled with how all the photos turned out.
