Ciella and Matt {Engaged} | Malibu, CA

I've known Matt since high school and when I was introduced to Ciella, I knew he had met someone very special. One of the first times I was able to get to know Ciella was when she had booked me for a surprise Portrait Session for Matt and his beloved dog, Jack. At the time, Jack had been diagnosed with cancer and they weren't sure if he was going to live much longer. (Side note: Jack is still going strong!) I thought it was one of the most thoughtful acts of love and I was so happy Matt had found someone to love him that way. Last summer, we played on the same Kickball league and it was so cute to watch them cheer each other on. To me, one of the most beautiful things about love is knowing you've found a teammate who will support you and, sometimes literally, cheer you on from the sidelines.

For our session, Ciella had her grandmother's dress from the 1940's altered into a beautiful, long flowing skirt. I was almost afraid to touch the fabric for fear that it would rip or tear between my fingertips. I thought it was such a beautiful way to honor her grandmother while also continuing the legacy of love in her family for generations.

Congratulations you two crazy kids! Can't wait for the party!
