This love between you two? This love that led you to feel not just ready — but excited — to share vows in front of friends of family? This love that made everything click? 

It tops the list. This is it, and it couldn’t be better.

Santa Paula Airport Engagement Shoot

corgi engagement photos

High school sweethearts Miranda and Jim made their engagement shoot truly personal to them by opting to shoot at Santa Paula Airport with Jim’s plane and their sweet corgi, Oliver.

These two were supposed to have their big wedding on the most popular date of 2020: 10.10.20. Due to Covid, they opted to reschedule to next year but are still having a mini-mony with their family on their original date.

This Santa Paula airport engagement shoot is a great example of making your engagement photos personal to you two and your love story.

Are you into hiking? Do a mountain engagement shoot on your favorite trail. Love ice cream? Get cones and walk around your neighborhood. Brewery people? Now you’re speaking my language.

Congrats to Miranda and Jim! I can’t wait to celebrate with you next year!
