Engagement Session at a Humboldt Cattle Ranch | Joey + Richelle

Richelle approached be about a month ago inquiring about my wedding collections. I was automatically excited because I’ve seen her and Joey at the Portuguese Hall a few times during festas. Portuguese pride! Anywhoo… We totally clicked and we started to discuss where they would want their engagement session. They wanted a country type location and I new I couldn’t disappoint! Through my connections (and being very extroverted) I found this amazing cattle ranch right in between Arcata and McKinleyville. That’s in Northern California for you out of towners. There were lovely fields, a barn, trees along the river bank and cows! The cows certainly loved the show! Thank you to the Hunt family for letting us use their amazing ranch for Joey and Richelle’s engagement session!




So right about now I told Joey to whisper in his sexiest voice as many cereal types as he can think of. Mmmm seductive!

Just look at her poppin’ that hip! She’s the cutest!

I totally love the ring! So unique and pretty! And Richelle’s eyes….

If you and your significant other look at each other this way… you know you’ve hit the jackpot!

So Joey proposed to Richelle 10 minutes before midnight and on midnight it would be her birthday! He was just too excited folks! So these red shoes have a meaning! I think it’s so sweet that she brought them to have them photographed! Joey bought them for his wife to be in the Azores, where his father’s family is from and where they got engaged! Cork is very popular in Portugal and the red totally makes this pop! I love me some pop!

And of course we had to go up the hill to take a wide shot of this epic ranch! Simply beautiful!
