Topanga Canyon Hippie/Beatles Inspired Engagement | Alicyn + Jason

I really am SOOO lucky to have such stylish, unique and creative clients! And Alicyn + Jason are no different. It’s super fun, because Alicyn and I are both Emerson grads, and she was actually the RA for our college’s Los Angeles Program, which is how we met! It has been 5 years since I graduated, but thanks to the magic of facebook, Ali and I reconnected and she told me of her engagement to the lovely Jason!

In Ali’s first email to me, she happily told me how she met the love her life! And as soon as I talked to Jason, I could tell he felt the exact same way about Ali! These two radiate love and happiness when they are together! They lose themselves in each other’s eyes, they light up when they hold hands, and they know exactly how to make each other laugh. Shooting our engagement was so wonderful, because I could just feel how in sync these two are. It’s not an easy  feat to find your perfect match, but I am sure Ali and Jason are it for each other!

That right there is enough to make me giddy over a shoot! Seeing people so in love and so happy… it’s what fuels me and why I do what I do. But when a couple wants to go out of the box and make their session super unique and stylized? Well for me that’s like icing on the cake, plus ten cherries and sprinkles too. So I pretty much died of a sugar coma when Ali told me they wanted to do a hippie-Beatles-inspired shoot in Topanga! Heck yea girl! I LOVE Hippie style!! So we put our heads together, found some fantastic inspiration on pinterest… Ali borrowed vintage clothes from her soon-to-be-mother-in-law and I brought some props too! And voila! A hippie, Beatles heaven shoot was born! I just love how the photos turned out and am so excited to share!!!

I mean seriously, could these two be ANY cuter??

Love the light here! Everything is so gorgeous!!

Ali is a very talented musician, and she played Jason some love songs while they sat on the hammock together! SO sweet!

I LOVE everything about this next set up! Ali’s dress and scarf were from Jason’s mom, and Ali’s leather cuff on her wrist was from her mom! Real vintage awesomeness!



These two are just so darn cute, it’s unreal!!! 🙂

All you need is love!
