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

My world is so small, it really is. I met Josh at a Charity Event this past summer where we were both exhibitors (Josh is also a wedding photographer!). We ended up striking up a conversation at the event and really hit it off. He was talking about his girlfriend, Amber and how they were probably going to get engaged soonish. After a few minutes he introduced me to his then girlfriend, Amber! Turns out, Amber and I were friends when we were 13 and were going to the same church. She is now a fabulous harpist for weddings and special events! How crazy is it that we ended up in the same industry?! Like I said, small world. We all talked about wedding photography for a bit and then went our separate ways for the event. I was so thrilled when I got the e-mail from them saying that they were engaged and wanted me to photograph their wedding! It's seriously the BIGGEST compliment in the world when another wedding photographer asks you to shoot their wedding. I can't wait for their wedding in March! We did a 2-part engagement session so you'll have to wait until next week for the second installment. Here is part one!

Styled Shoot | Beach {without the beach} | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Becca Rillo

Another fantastic shoot by a bunch of my favorite girls! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but I'll add in some commentary here and there: enjoy!

Molly working her magic...

Our model's hair just sparkled in the gorgeous light:

Emilee's details are darling! Who would have ever thought that an old scale, a doilie and some seashells would have looked this good??! This is why I love Em!

I just died over the super subtle rope detail for the napkin ring! How cute is that??

The bouquet was so pretty and looked like a bunch of wild sea-flowers that were picked by a mermaid! Wild, yet tamed.. Samantha is fantastic!

And to top it off, we had a beautiful sunset finale! A perfect ending to all of our hard work..
