Darcy and Kent wanted their engagement portraits somewhere with a lot of flowers and a garden feel. Believe or not, that can be more challenging than you’d think here in Southern California! They chose Huntington Library and Gardens in Pasadena, California, which is an amazing place (though, not very photographer-friendly, unfortunately).

Doesn’t Darcy have the sweetest look in these pictures of her and Kent embracing each other so beautifully?

After Huntington, we went over to Pasadena City Hall, one of the most beautiful buildings I’m aware of in Southern California. They don’t make ’em like they used to. We’ve been fortunate enough to have shot a wedding at the Pasadena City Hall before, too.

In just over a week we’re flying to Oahu, Hawaii for Darcy and Kent’s wedding at the breathtaking JW Marriott Ihilani Resort at Ko Olina. So excited it’s not even funny!
