Brea & Frenchie | Elegant and sweet engagement session at Orcutt Ranch

I had such a wonderful time photographing this elegant and sweet engagement session at Orcutt Ranch with this amazing couple! Let me tell you about them!

Brea, a true California girl, ventured from Oregon to Southern California as a child, moving through various LA neighborhoods. Brea is very passionate about the fashion industry, and she’s also the owner of Healthy Life Planner, helping those with chronic illnesses. She’s a die-hard dog lover and a concert enthusiast.

Frenchie, born in Germany in a military family, was raised and lived in many US states. 

He is a film sound mixer with an Emmy to his name. Frenchie is also a culinary magician and a delightful host.

Their love story began online, sparked by Frenchie’s intriguing profile and Brea’s interest in his Emmy story. Their first date at Bacari marked the start of a beautiful journey. Brea, initially hesitant, fell for Frenchie’s kindness, his exceptional relationship with his daughter Rachel, and his unwavering chivalry.

The proposal was nothing short of remarkable. Frenchie orchestrated an elaborate surprise in Vegas with the help of Brea’s friends. The room adorned with rose petals and candles set the stage for an emotional proposal to which, you guessed it, she said YES! 🙂

They are both so excited about their upcoming wedding and looking forward to a married life filled with laughter, good food, cuddles, and to quote Frenchie ” with a bonus of filing taxes together :)”

Thank you very much for having me, dear Brea and Frenchie! I was honored to capture your love and can’t wait for your wedding day that I’m sure will be nothing but spectacular!
