Melody + Jared | J.Crew inspired engagement Photography | Carlsbad California

Melody and Jared wanted a secluded and earthy location for their {as I call it “J.Crew” inspired) engagement session. So we set out for their location and a little small urban action prior to the field. We spontaneously hit up RELM, a cute wine bar in San Elijo Hills, crashed a well-lit small home store and then headed to one of my favorite fields. Hand-in-hand, they warmed up to the camera, walked through the fields and at times, got silly.  Loved that!

These two met Melody’s 1st day of work {1st job straight out of college}. They worked together for about a year and a half when Melody was going to set him up with her best friend…It was then that melody discovered her feelings for him, and too, Jared felt the same.  I guess this is where you say, the rest is history.

While San Francisco is where they live, they will tie the knot in sunny Carlsbad at a coastal venue in May 2014.    Thank you Melody and Jared for the honor to capture your love before your big day! Xo
