Kirsten & David: Gabilan Ranch Engagement

She wasn’t just any girl. Fun, sweet, determined, oh and extremely gorgeous, Kirsten caught his attention from their first meeting at a friend’s party. Everything about her captivated him and he went after her despite the fact that she was taken. After several months, David won her attention, her smiles and her heart. It wasn’t long after that he proposed, just in the way she asked him not to, in front of a crowd. And that’s how their relationships blossoms, with him surprising her, and with her smiles, enough to cover any mischief.

Their engagement session was full of surprises as well. As soon as we started taking pictures a thick layer of clouds descended into the valley, decreasing visibility and covering us in fog. Who would have thought that a sunny day can in minutes turn into overcast and wet one. We took advantage of our new surroundings and then scoured the hills for some sun and different backdrops. It was definitely an unforgettable experience and quite and adventure I might say.

Kirsten and David, I am so honored to work with you guys. Thank you for your smiles, your friendship and the fun times on the ranch. I will treasure our time together. Can’t wait to hang out with you guys again in May! Lots of love and appreciation, Yuliya.






Kirsten, I love your eye for outfits!


Good looking or what?

And your modeling skills are superb!








Kirsten you are gorgeous!

It was pretty sunny on the other side of the hill, so we headed for some sunset shots under a white oak tree ;)









Back to the misty fog ;)


After all the stories of people getting stuck over the lake, Kirsten and David still went for the tire swing. Love you guys!


David is a cowboy at heart and Kirsten, you rocked out the look beautifully!

Thank you Conner for your beautiful ranch, all your help, for driving us around, oh and for the fun stories!

  2. Yuliya, these are amazing! where do you get such gorgeous looking couples?:) By far, this is one of my favorite engagement shoots you’ve done. Every picture is like a piece of art. My absolute fav is the 7th from the back…just love it. Incredible job sis!

  3. i agree with olya for sure.
    I’m always more of a fan of neutral color schemes, and the fog definitely gives it that look
    the one by the lake and swing are my favs. One is artsy and the other is whimsical/unique.
    doesn’t necessarily have “these are our engagement photos” but more of a universal romantic setting :)
