Chantel + Robby | Oceanside Engagement Session | Southern California Wedding Photographer | Stevie Dee Photography

One of our favorite things to do is ask couples about the proposal. It was Robby's birthday and both of their families were together. They went to a beach festival, then to a zombie food truck festival! (Robby's birthday is the weekend before Halloween). They were all sitting picnic style on the grass to watch Rob open his presents. Everyone stood up for him to open his last gift (Chantel thought that was totally weird). He reads his card, then passes it to Chantel.. It's really a card for her! She read it a few times, looked up, and he was on one knee! sweet! We love simple and romantic proposals!

Devan + Joel {Southern California Maternity} | Photos by Stevie Dee Photography

Meet Devan & her hubby Joel.

(& Sasha too.. hey girl!)


We took Devan & Joel to a nearby (dog friendly) park. It's actually one of my favorite places to photograph because every time I take clients there it looks different.

There's something about that place that is so moldable, as an artist you can really make it look however you want. We had a great location, some great light (this here is known as the "golden hour" my friends) and great company!

 & In just a few short weeks they will welcome their baby girl


into this world and become a family of three! (well, technically four..sorry Sasha!)THP_7512-2THP_7515-2I've known Devan since the 8th grade! When my family moved to Temecula we moved in right down the street from Devan's house. We used to walk home from school together and go on "adventures" in the meadow. So for the second half of her session we decided to take it back to where our friendship began, and what better place than this? THP_7550-2THP_7582-2THP_7561-3
