Stonepine Estate, Carmel Valley, California

April and Andrew are one of those couples we knew we would be friends with from our very first meeting with them. The conversation flowed so easily, and we clicked right away. They are both kind, hilarious, and insanely intelligent people. Their wedding is coming up in September, and I am so happy they decided to do an engagement session with us so we could get to know them better before the big event.

They decided to make a weekend out of it, so on Friday we all piled into their car and drove to Carmel Valley together, to the absolutely stunning Stonepine Estate. We shot photos for three days, with the main session being on Saturday. And in between, we had picnics and wine-tastings, amazing dinners, ping pong, croquet and even a bit of archery. Needless to say, we got to know these guys very well. In the photo gallery we sent them, mixed in with all their engagement portraits, are definitely quite a few of the four of us goofing off, having a few too many glasses of wine together, and just being generally ridiculous.

April and Andrew, thank you so much for an incredible weekend. We can only hope the photos did justice to how much fun we had with you guys, and what a beautiful couple you are.
