I couldn't help myself when my film lab sent me back these photos: this couple is breathtaking and I just had to post it immediately. Mission San Juan Capistrano is not only one of the most beautiful wedding venues but also a gorgeous location for an engagement shoot. It's right here in Southern California only a few miles away from the pretty town of Laguna. Who knew that a historic place with brick, stone, and ruins that look like Rome, actually exists in in California! This sweet couple is absolutely adorable and natural in front of the camera. Thanks V & M for allowing me to document this memorable time in your life, and for being so easy going during our engagement session despite the hot weather!
I'm re-blogging this post after a one year hiatus from blogging anything. Just wanted to include this in my repertoire of images on the blog. :) Laura has been a dear friend of mine for quite a while now and it was so much fun photographing her around Pasadena and Malibu. She wanted to gift a set of sweet photos to her husband Jaime, so we got some printed and packaged it nicely in a box. This is a terrific idea and perhaps alternative to boudoir photos - perhaps your husband or fiance's birthday is coming up and you want to surprise them with something special, personal, and unique - you.
