kachet + cj / sacramento engagement session

Let me start by admitting that this session intimidated me like no other. I've followed Kachet's lifestyle blog, The Kachet Life, for a while and finally met her and CJ at the wedding of our mutual friends, Christina + Anna. Because of Kachet's #girlboss work in Sacramento's creative industry, she's well-versed in this city and works with incredibly talented Sacramento photographers on a regular basis. So when she contacted me about photographing her and CJ's engagement, I may or may not have melted into a puddle of self-doubt for *just* a moment.

Fast forward a couple months, we met for their session at the Block Butcher Bar (where they met on their first date) and right away it felt like catching up with friends. My photographer nerves settled, as did their in-front-of-the-camera nerves once they ordered their signature first date drinks. Afterwards we continued on to the Capitol and the Tower Bridge, iconic of Sacramento and their life together.

It was a beautiful evening getting to know our city better alongside the power couple who knows it best, and I'm so excited to share these personal favorites from the set!
