stacey and jeff’s world tour 2010 made a stop in santa monica and we were beyond stoked to get front row seats! well actually, we just started their engagement session at the santa monica pier. the world tour will start after they get married later this year. they’ve already seen some amazing places together, but their love of food and travel will eventually take them to every corner of the globe. you can’t help but to get excited just talking with stacey and jeff. they are an amazing couple with tons of cool stories to tell. they remind me of a young carl and ellie. (i love that movie.) we had a lot of fun adding a few more pages to their adventure book as we strolled around the santa monica pier and the lacma (los angeles county museum of art). alright, enough of the jibba jabba. let’s kick this session off.

these two are adorable! i just want to put em in my pocket.

jfk and reagan agree, the berlin wall is definitely better served as a backdrop for stacey and jeff’s kissy shot than what it was originally constructed for.

so at this point you’re probably asking “what’s with the balloons?”

they are more than just a fun spot of color in our photos. a balloon actually played a big role in jeff’s proposal to stacey. while they were on vacation in cappadocia turkey they went on a hot air balloon ride. jeff, being deathly afraid of heights, stayed as far away from the sides as he could while stacey tried to photograph as much of the ride as possible. during their flight, stacey felt a tap on her shoulder. she partially turned and saw jeff on one knee with a white ring box in his hand. in her excitement to turn all the way around to face jeff she knocked the ring box out of jeff’s hand and over the edge of the basket. as the box fell to the ground below stacey actually considered jumping out after it. she desperately searched the landscape for reference points but knew the ring would be impossible to find in this terrain. just as she was about to lose all hope she heard jeff call her name. she turned to see him on one knee again, this time with a black velvet ring box in his hand. as he began asking her to spend the rest of their lives together all she could do is say “yes!” she said it three times before he could finish his proposal.

just so everyone doesn’t grab the next flight to cappadocia and start combing the hillsides for that first ring box, it was empty. jeff is a well known practical joker, but stacey totally bought it.

you got got!

when i say “i love lamp” i’m not just looking at things in the office and saying i love them. i love lamp.
