A Perfect Day for Engagements in Temecula – Temecula wedding and engagement photographers

As much as I LOVE shooting weddings, sometimes Engagement sessions give weddings a good run for their money. There’s something about the unhurried meandering through a city, beach, wherever we go – that just tugs at my heartstrings. 

There’s time for the couple to slow down, and really experience their love for each other. They get to hold hands, snuggle, whisper sweet nothings… all those fabulous and cheesy things that sometimes the rush of life robs us of. Maybe I just like the idea that I get to yell “Kiss!!” and couples mostly oblige… I love that I can provide that incentive to get the moment rolling. Most people laugh and tell me they haven’t kissed so much in a very long while, but that too, reminds me that I have the best job in the world.

Jennifer and Mike didn’t once need to be asked to smile. They both seemed to thoroughly enjoy the sweet little moments they got to share while we were shooting. And they so graciously followed along as I led them through more of Temecula than they’ve probably ever want to see! Jennifer & Mike, you guys rock, and I can’t wait for your wedding in September!

Classic Car + Classic Beauty – best riverside engagement pictures – vintage car engagement shoot

I’m going to come right out and say it: I love these pictures. I really do.

But I love Mike and Arlene, so I’m a little biased.

I wasn’t planning on taking their engagement pictures, but it fell into my lap, so I couldn’t turn it down! And then I heard that the truck was coming? Oooh man, I couldn’t wait.

Classic truck? Check. Tattoos and vintage flair? Check. Red lipstick and classic Hollywood beauty? Check!

So here they are… Enjoy!

So glamorous!

Congrats Mike & Arlene! You guys are awesome!

Hayden

I’ve been fortunate enough to know Hayden since his days still kickin around inside the womb. I get to chronicle adventures and milestones throughout his life now and then, and when I’m lucky I get to sit down and just visit with him too. Well, as much as three year old boys are into “sitting” and “visiting”…

But this last time we went out to take some pictures was different. It was the first time Hayden really started to take a little bit of direction, and got into looking like the handsome little stud he is! He is going to be one tough little model. I cannot believe how fast he has grown!

I’m not sure where this little model look came from, but I LOVE it!

The Wells – One on the Way – Riverside Maternity Photographer

We squeezed in these maternity pictures in October, not long at all before beautiful baby Bridgett made her debut.

They brought along their perfect pooch Giada who was nothing but love and manners.

Erin + Chad : An Oak Canyon Nature Center Wedding – Oak Canyon Nature Center Weddings

One of the absolute best parts of getting to be a wedding photographer is that I get to see some out-of-this world gorgeous weddings. I travel to locations straight out of daydreams, where every last detail is accounted for. Weddings are full of beautiful people on the happiest day of their lives, surrounded by and simply brimming with love.

Honestly, I wouldn’t trade this  job for anything.

Another awesome perk (from a single lady’s point of view) is that I get to get an up-close and personal showing of all the details that are in vogue for  weddings. I get to pencil all these lovely ideas into my personal wedding dream book that every girl keeps in her head starting at around age 15.

Erin and Chad planned, organized, and designed all the lovely details of their wedding, with some help from their friends. I think I could copy and paste everything about their wedding straight into my own wedding inspirations book.  It was vintage chic, relaxed and woodsy, and timeless elegance all rolled into one.

I shot this wedding with Jeremiah Bonjean Photography in September. Erin and Chad were married at Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim Hills California.

Congratulations Erin & Chad!

getting ready

gorgeous!
