Noelle + Matt Engagement in Dreamy Golden Fields | Big Bear, Fall 2021

Updated: Feb 13

I first met Noelle and Matt when I was photographing Matt's niece's wedding in 2017; s/o to Rachelle & Justin! These two were in the wedding party and we all hit it off. :) After the wedding, Noelle and I stayed in touch and so when she reached out for engagement (and elopement!) photos, I was pumped!! She mentioned they wanted neutral, open, dry fields and simple. I thought of all the places in Big Bear and finally landed here... to these dreamy, golden fields. I even got to play with the drone a bit :)


These two have been in love for almost nine years. In the inquiry, Noelle said, "Even though it’s been 8 years of 'waiting', I always knew he was my person." I can totally relate to this. And I remember thinking that they had a really great connection. The ability to laugh without prompts or how they looked at each other. She said that Matt makes her laugh every day... that's the fucking best <3 It sounds cheesy, but honestly, what they have is magic. I am so excited to document their big day in April ['22] in Poway- I already know I will be in tears after everything they have been through.


Hope you enjoy their love as much as I do!
