Before we head out to celebrate Amanda’s wedding (YAY!), we wanted to leave you with a sexy retro couple, a gorgeous Mad Men-esque house in the Hollywood Hills, and beautiful photography from dear to my art photography. Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!

From dear to my art photography:

Natalie + Corey are two very close friends of mine. They got engaged this past Christmas and no sooner than she said “yes”, she called to tell me the fantastic news so that we could start planning their engagement session! At that moment, I had a vision of them as a sexy retro couple in a mod home with thick rimmed glasses, martinis, and a pool. Natalie claimed that wasn’t “their style” and it took a little bit of arm twisting to get them to agree to bathing suit photos, but she trusted me and let me bring my vision to life; a decision all three of us are so glad about. Our friend Kaycee Tashjian did their hair and Natalie’s make up and I pulled a bunch of clothes I felt fit the look from my closet (including a gorgeous hand-me-down vintage lace dress that Ive envisioned Natalie in for years). Once they got all done up and dressed, Natalie and Corey looked at each other and realized, they own that style! We used my Uncle’s fabulous home in the Hollywood Hills and shot what ended up being our “Mad Men themed” engagement session.
