Paso Robles Engagement Photographer, Megan and Andrew at Orchard Hill Bed and Breakfast

The start of my 2015 season was with an awesome and fun engagement session with Megan and Andrew.  Clients like them (well actually, like most all of my lovely couples) make my heart smile.

Andrew and Megan met here in San Luis Obispo County while in college at Cal Poly. We have the honor of shooting so many college couples from Cal Poly, it’s always fun to hear their stories and see where their adventures have taken them after leaving the area.  Their particular journey together has landed them in the Bay Area, and they will official wed in August at the gorgeous Bear Flag Farm near Davis, CA.

Usually I walk away from my shoots / weddings etc with this happy and full heart and this day was no different.  There’s something about my career that fills me up and keeps me going, even in the hardest times.  Perhaps it’s the beautiful details, or the incredible venues I get to visit, but mostly I believe it’s due to being in an industry rooted in love.  There’s just a great vibe when it comes to authentic love, and having the opportunity to photograph it for timeless images on behalf of my clients, “fills up my cup!”    I believe Megan and Andrew felt the same …..

Hi Allyson,
AHH!!! I’m so excited that our engagement pictures are here! I can’t stop smiling – they are so beautiful! I’m in awe of your talent :) Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Also, thank you so much for the sweet note. We could not be more excited to have you be part of our wedding and feel so lucky to have you as our photographer.
I can’t even explain how excited/happy/in love with these pictures I am!! 

Thank you soooo much!! :)

About the venue …

I’ve known Debbie and Doug for around 8 years and they always are so inviting and keep their property manicured in such a beautiful way!!!  It’s always a pleasure to photograph at Orchard Hill.

Innkeepers Doug and Deborah Thomsen graciously extend an invitation to be their guest at Orchard Hill Farm Bed and Breakfast, a beautiful romantic getaway in Paso Robles, CA. Their lovely home and your charming lodging accommodations are fashioned in the style of a traditional English country house.

The original owner toured Europe searching for the most authentic architectural pieces and antique stained glass. The California inn’s beautifully appointed guestrooms are a splendid mix of French and English antiques brought together by the decorating talent and passion of Deborah Thomsen.

An easy, countryside road, just minutes from Highway 101, winds to the crest of the hill and Orchard Hill Farm. The picturesque setting is surrounded by thirty-six beautiful acres of gentle pasture, rolling hills, and abundant orchards and vineyards.

This B&B retreat in the heart of a world-renowned California wine country offers a rich selection of attractions. Fine restaurants, Hearst Castle, hot springs, spas, historic missions and the spectacular California coastline is just minutes away.
