This is my beautiful little sister Aria and her handsome Italian Giuseppe. For those of you who know us well, know that we are not strangers to foreign affairs in our family. :) These two are the originals and have been a pretty hot item for the past ten+ years now and despite the lack of formality, Beppe really is family. But the day has finally come and almost 12 years later they have set a date and as you can all imagine, we are VERY EXCITED!!! We shot these engagement photos minutes before her graduation from UCSB with her PhD in AMAZINGNESS. This amazing spot is the Monarch Butterfly Preserve over-looking our great Pacific O outside of Santa Barbara, California. I can't imagine a more perfect or romantic spot to celebrate all of the wonderful things happening in their lives. And by the way, are the not the MOST gorgeous couple??
