Santa Monica Engagement: Bri and Drew

Good morning and happy Monday!  Boy, do we have a great shoot to kick off your week.  You can’t go wrong with the bright and colorful California and the effortless beauty and love that Bri and Drew exhibit.

We met up a couple of weeks ago in Santa Monica, California.  These two are getting married in Black Forest and both are Colorado Springs natives but really got to know each other and fell in love after they both moved to SoCal to pursue careers in Hollywood.

You may have spotted Drew in Angels and Demons.  He was a guard.  And he’s met Tom Hanks, sooooo he’s pretty much a celebrity in my book. ;-)

You would think both of these guys were celebrities based on the sweet paparazzi photography I did on the 3rd Street Promenade…

Bri and Drew, what a blessing you are.  I can’t wait to see you two again.  I’m down for more sushi next time you’re out here in this landlocked state. ;-)

So much love and joy to you!

 And now to those paparazzi pictures I was talking about…
