Thanh and Nicholas met in autumn 2009 in statistics class. Nick found a seat in class in the back row, and the professor posted a survey question on the board and asked the class to answer. Pulling out his iClicker, Nick went to answer the question but soon realised that his clicker had run out of power. Turning to his right, he tapped on his neighbour’s shoulder; as she turned to face him, he saw how beautiful she was and immediately turned nervous and shy. “This is embarrassing,” he said, pointing to his iClicker, “but I forgot to put new batteries in my clicker. Would you happen to have a spare?”. Thanh laughed and said “No, sorry! I’m also out of batteries.” Turning to her right, she asked to share another classmate’s clicker between the three of them. Luckily for Nick, his answers impressed her and she invited him to join her statistics class team for an assignment.
Teamwork turned into talking, then talking turned into a coffee date in the rain, and their first date turned into a second, and the rest is history!
From the groom: “For this engagement session, we wanted to show off our fun side and something that we both enjoy which is baseball. We love getting outside in the summer under the sun, throwing the ball around and swinging the bat. It is my favourite sport and one that Thanh has learned to play and love as well. Every year, as often as we can, we go down to the ballpark and cheer on the Blue Jays.”

Just 30 minutes south of San Francisco, sits a magical coastal community called Half Moon Bay. It was the perfect spot for this engagement shoot for Jessica and Brandon because it’s filled with breathtaking coastal scenery and it’s where Jessica got to grow up. Although she and Brandon live ‘over the hill’ near San Mateo now, they love making it back to her hometown for the coastal beauty and to visit Jessica’s family.
During their engagement photo shoot they had amazing morning light, and their first stop was in the magical cypress forest at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach. The light beams poured through the trees as Jessica and Brandon wandered around the forest and Cat Cutillo Photography & Video captured candids. The marine reserve is right down the street from Jessica’s family’s home and it was always a special location she came to throughout her childhood. After soaking up the unmatchable beauty at the reserve, Jessica did a wardrobe change and they headed over to Dunes Beach in Half Moon Bay, CA, which looks like such a gorgeous oasis on the ocean with a serene coastal trail that winds along the beach. loved touring around the beach trails with them and kicking our shoes off for a beachside shoot. All in
We love the photos of this couple touring around the trails for a beachside shoot! Thank you so much to Cat Cutillo Photography & Video for sharing these images with us.
Tiffany and Brent were married on the front lawn of Rose Hall in Dallas, in front of their friends, family, and their daughter Presley. Rose Hall itself is a casually elegant wedding ceremony and reception site with a gorgeous vintage flare. Among many many rose bushes, and many many loved ones they tied the knot in a beautiful little gazebo with a vintage chandelier! We just love how light and beautiful these images are – the true happiness in Tiffany’s face is infectious!
With weeks of planning and a lifetime love, Brayden made the arrangement to propose to Meredith under the mist of Looking Glass Falls. Just a short drive from Asheville, these two set off in the morning to just have a great day in the forest with simple plans for dinner that evening, or at least that is what Meredith thought. Flowers on the river bank and a picnic basket filled with love, set the scene for these two to make the leap into their new future.

Katie and Leland are described as having a love and laughter that can ignite a room when they’re together. Their family owns this gorgeous lakeside barn in New York which was the stage for their warm and heartfelt wedding ceremony. We love the rustic details such as the cowboy boots and haystack seats; very country chic! Their wedding day looks like it had a comfortable elegance which was carried out from beginning to end with each detail beautifully thought out and executed perfectly – every bit of Katie and Leland’s wedding day looks as charming as their love for each other.
