Behind the Scenes: Molly Ryan Floral - Hood River, Oregon Florist | Chico Photographer

It's been awhile since capturing these images of the wonderful Molly of Molly Ryan Floral work her magic. So I wanted to take a moment and share these images with you in honor of #ThrowbackThursday.

Over the past year I have been so lucky to become friends with Molly. We originally met during my floral consult meeting for my own wedding. Since then we have both been navigating the waters of newly owning a creative business and it has been so wonderful watching her business grow over the past year. We've had many talks about the struggles of being newish business owners in Chico and growing our businesses locally. I'm so lucky to have met such a creative and genuine heart. Which is why I am going to miss her dearly. Even though with both our busy schedules, we've been lacking on hanging out -- oh hey wedding season! She will be heading up north to Hood River, Oregon and I know that she will do absolutely amazing things there as well.

Engagement at One Mile in Bidwell Park & Chico State | Hannah & Casey | Chico Engagement Photographer

Hannah & Casey met during their time as students at Chico State. They were assigned to the same group for one of their capstone classes. As the semester passed, the more their relationship progressed. After graduating from Chico State, they endured a year of long distance and 3 years after that class group Casey proposed to Hannah in Cabo. Now here they are engaged and soon to be married next June at the Los Altos History Museum! They currently are residing in the Bay Area and since their love story started in Chico, it only seemed fitting to have their engagement photos documented here.

I had a blast adventuring through Bidwell Park with these two. And yes, adventuring -- I was having a difficult time finding this one BEAUTIFUL spot I scouted earlier that month. Regardless, they put up with me searching for the spot and rocked their session -- from stoic glances in the forest to strolling through patches of greenery. After finally locating the spot, we worked our way back to the parking lot and ended the session at Chico State hitting up Kendall Hall and Alumni Glenn, which was quite fitting!

Engagement at Bidwell Park & Chico State | Blakeley & Teague | Chico Engagement Photographer

I am SO excited to share this engagement session of Blakeley & Teague. They won an engagement session with me this past winter and due to their busy schedules we were unable to meet up for photos until August, which included a little bit of a surprise -- Blakeley's cute baby bump! 

For their engagement session, we walked through Bidwell Park then ended the session at Chico State. It was so much fun working with Blakeley & Teague -- we laughed the whole time!
