Tara & Daniel

I am beyond excited to share this engagement session with you. Not only did we shoot at one of my favorites places in the whole wide world, but I also got to shoot at a location that means a lot to my couple. And I love to document my couples love stories in places that mean so much to them.

Going to UCLA is like going home. It’s been almost 7 years since I graduated (wow! I feel old!), but when I go there it feels like no time has passed at all. So many awesome memories happened there. I just love everything about that school.

Tara and Daniel feel the same way and that’s why I love them. Not only are Tara and Daniel die hard Bruins, but they are Bruin athletes as well. Tara was on the softball team and Daniel was on the baseball team and that’s where their love story began. Tara has an infectious laugh and even when I would tell her to just do a little smile she couldn’t! She has a gorgeous, big smile that makes me smile too! And Daniel is such a gentleman. I was so impressed by his manners and the way he treated Tara. They both have an amazing energy and it feels like I’ve known them for years. Can you tell I love them?

I had so much fun walking around Westwood and campus with them hearing all about their story. We even got special access to the softball and baseball fields. It was so cool! If I were to do college all over again I would be a softball player because those girls are rad! I can’t wait for their wedding in September! The details are going to be A-MA-ZING! And I got a sneak peek at Tara’s dress yesterday. Um, yeah. It’s just about the most gorgeous gown I’ve ever seen. No joke. But, you’ll just have to wait until September to see it! For now, here is their slideshow! Thanks, Tara and Daniel! Can’t wait for your wedding!!!

We started out at Maloney’s (which is now O’Hara’s or something like that. But, to us it will always be Maloney’s)


Tara’s favorite pear cider. They have a keg coming to their wedding!

Their only class together was in Haines. Go soc majors!

Let me tell you. The girls locker room smelled much better than the boys!

Daniel spent a lot of time on this mound.
