Josh & Amber | Engaged | Santa Clarita, California | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Becca Rillo

I was on such a roll with blogging.. such a roll. And then the unthinkable happened: I filled up my hard-drive. My 2 TERABYTE hard-drive! My first one ever, it was definitely a milestone. However, it totally through a monkey wrench into my blogging because I didn't have enough space to create new pictures! AND since I'm cheap..frugal, I suppose.. I chose the Super Saver Shipping option from Amazon and it took 2+ weeks to get my new one delivered! I learned my lesson and I'm back in my groove, I promise. Here we go! The long-awaited Part Two of Josh & Amber's Engagement Session!


Styled Shoot | The Princess & the Pea | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Becca Rillo

Whew! Well, I'm sure you all have noticed some big changes around the blog. Specifically..everything! I finally figured out what I was doing and put together an official website (which you can find if you click my logo at the top of the page) and I couldn't be happier with it! New branding, new colors, new look, new website.. I'm glad to be starting out fresh. Now I just have to go through and re-watermark all of my photos on here, but that's just too much work for my tired eyes at the moment..

So here we go: The moment you all have been waiting for.. The Princess & the Pea! I have had the opportunity to work with an insanely talented group of girls in the past couple of months. We have had so much fun brainstorming, plotting and exchanging late-night e-mails! I'm glad to know these girls and you can find them all listed at the bottom of the photos.

When I originally thought of this idea I wasn't exactly sure how it was all going to come together. I considered picking up old mattresses from Craigslist or even pulling the mattress off of my own bed! However, at the last moment I decided to go with air-mattresses that I borrowed from friends! So although it was incredibly unstable, it looked fantastic. When I think of fairy tales I think of bright colors, so that was the main inspiration for the overall aesthetic of this shoot. We wrapped the mattresses with antique chenille bedspreads and threw in some bobbley yarn for good measure! Obviously since I love vintage, we though in a vintage twist with rentals but kept it bright and modern with fun florals! I can't get over how much I love the purple pokey flowers that are in the bouquet.

Our models, Hope and John, are happily engaged and will be tying the knot in October! Hope was such a gorgeous model as she posed on the unstable pile of mattresses, and John just made us laugh the whole time. We loved working with both of them and wish them all of the happiness in the world!
