We’re just here to send you off into your romance filled weekends with one last bit of love, and that comes in the form of an adorable engagement session from Picotte Photography. Enjoy your weekends LBBers! xoxo
From the Groom to be … Usually the bride takes charge submitting photos to wedding blogs, such as Style Me Pretty. Oddly enough, I enjoy your website/blog as much as she does. I proposed to her last year. A few month later, not knowing what to do, we almost had a panic attack because we were struggled to find a location to take our engagement pictures. Luckily, we came across Paramount Ranch. I thought the location it fit our personality very well. The setting is very casual and fun with it Western characteristics, but yet still holds it beauty being in the Canyons of Malibu. The pictures turn out great, and really captured the beauty of my Wife-to-be. As beautiful as she is in the outside as seen in these pictures, she is beautiful in the inside. She is the most warm-hearted and caring person I know, and she only deserves the best. I just want to let everyone know how excited I am to spend my life with her and this is my way to show that off!
