Ennisbrook Trail, Montecito, Engagement Photos | Nikki+Gerry

Couple embraces at Ennisbrook trail in Montecito, California.

“He invited me over for dinner…and laid the charm on thick that night…needless to say we have been inseparable ever since!”

Gerry and Nikki chose the Ennisbrook Trail in Montecito for their engagement session. From Nikki, “Ennisbrook was perfect because we both love Montecito and all the beautiful nature in the area. The flowers that were in bloom and the beautiful oak trees looked like paradise and a perfect backdrop for our engagement photos!”

The whimsical foliage fit right in with their whimsical personalities! We lucked out with the nasturtiums blooming (not so much with the poison ivy), and the sun peaking out through the clouds just enough to give us nice lighting.

“Gerry and I actually met about 10 years through a mutual friend that was my roommate during college. However, we didn’t start dating until only a few years ago when I moved to Camarillo for work. I didn’t know many people in the area, so I asked Gerry if he would want to meet for dinner some time as friends. He invited me over for dinner, but he had a different idea and laid the charm on thick that night…needless to say we have been inseparable ever since!”The bride and groom to be strike a pose at Ennisbrook in Montecito, for their engagement photographs.

I had a lot of fun photographing Nikki’s engagement ring in this Montecito setting! Here’s how Gerry popped the question:

“I was so happy when Gerry proposed!! It was a normal quiet night at home with our two dogs. I was sitting at the dinner table on my computer when Gerry started tossing our dog’s ball my way. Next thing I knew our dog, Bailey, was looking at me to throw his ball when I noticed a shiny ring on his collar. Gerry knelt down next to Bailey and asked if I would marry them! It was so perfect and so us. I said yes without hesitation!”
