Malibu Engagement : Courtney + Isaac

Photography

There’s just no way. Not him. Courtney and her girlfriends sat and watched television in disbelief as two guys hosted a college show at Vanderbilt University. It was a hit and Isaac quickly became known around campus as the quick-witted sidekick to a Love Line-style show, where students called in for relationship advice. And Courtney? She scoffed. The show–and its host–was ridiculous.

During spring break her junior year, Courtney and a small group of students enlisted to spend their vacation building homes for Habitat for Humanity. Much to her chagrin, Isaac was also part of the group. She kept her distance, but soon enough Isaac’s witty banter and kind spirit won her over. At the end of spring break, Courtney built a home…and also a spot in her heart for Isaac.

Six years later Courtney and Isaac are planning a perfect wedding in Hollywood at The London Hotel later this summer. I’m incredibly excited to spend the day with them again because after their engagement session in Malibu last week, I’m smitten with who they are. Here are a few favorites from our time together…

Last Friday was Courtney’s birthday, so what better way to celebrate than with a Crumbs cupcake?!

Courtney attended law school at UCLA (holllllla!!) and Isaac attended law school at Pepperdine University, so they spent a lot of time in Malibu, which proved to be a perfect place for engagement photos…just look at this amazing light! Oh, and Court, you’re too fab for words. Really.

One of the best things about Courtney and Isaac is that their love makes any location brighten just with their smiles…

The sunny day quickly became overcast, but the clouds couldn’t put a damper on their engagement pictures…I think Malibu has that effect on people…

After shooting around Malibu for a while, we headed to Pepperdine for more engagement pictures since it was a time in their lives when their love grew exponentially…

I’ll end the session on this cute note…
