I had such a great afternoon getting to know Ashely & George. We started their engagement shoot all dressed up at the Viceroy in Santa Monica, and then headed to Malibu for some casual fun beach shots. You two rocked this shoot, and we’re so exited about your upcoming September wedding at the Four Seasons! xox
