Her fingers tapped the keyboard without typing. Her teeth biting the end of her pen. With legs crossed her ankle bobbed up and down. She looked at the clock to anxiously wait for a mysteriously cute guy to arrive at work so she could catch a glimpse of him out the window. And then he pulled up, cool and suave, without a clue he had a secret admirer. Every chance she got, Angel would try making small talk with Eric just to spend a little extra time with him. Her subtle hints made themselves known, but little did she know that Eric watched her from the window too. It wasn’t long before they found themselves together, going on adventures, seeing the world…. and their most favorite thing, cuddled up on the couch with their doggies and a good TV show :)
These two love birds wanted to do something fun and exciting for their engagement session so we decided to get some boats and go for a ride! We had an amazing time hanging out and getting to take in the sights.
Angel & Eric, you guys are one of the sweetest couples we’ve ever met! You guys were a blast and we seriously cannot wait until your wedding at Keyways in October!
First impressions paint the first layer of the way we perceive one another. While we may hold onto the importance of them, the layers of perception become as thick as the personalities we judge. It gives us the ability to create a masterpiece of art, when we realize that first impressions are merely first impressions.
When Amber was first introduced to Jasen in high school, she was completely put off by his outspoken and harsh sense of humor. Jasen was not impressed by Amber’s loud and outspoken personality. It took a long time for them to get used to each other when they realized how much they were actually like each other. Over time, 10 years to be exact, their friendship grew into a mutual attraction. They valued their friendship more than anything and didn’t want to ruin what they had. But what they had they could not deny, because they fell in love.
These two are going to be sealing the deal on their love at the Lake Arrowhead Resort this year on the snow kissed mountains. I’m so excited about this because this SoCal girl has always dreamed of shooting a bride in the snow!
Jasen & Amber we had an amazing time hanging out with you guys in Balboa Park for your engagement session! Thank you for having us be a part of your incredible day, we can’t wait for it!
Hair done, makeup undone. Dressed for success Mandee buckled down for a 10-day job training for WaMu (for those of you that remember that’s short for Washington Mutual). Ready for some of the most boring days of her life, she hears some giggling over her shoulder. She turns to see where it’s coming from and a witty good looking guy dressed in slacks and his WaMu shirt is the life of the party. She was drawn to him. By the 3rd day of training, hair done, makeup done, and dressed to kill.
Shortly after training, Lalo made the move and asked Mandee on a date. They found they had a lot in common and they liked a lot of the same things. Then he mentioned to Mandee that he loved the Boston Red Sox and she realized he was the one.
Now this engagement session was unlike any other. We’ve been doing our best to avoid the fields this summer because where we live there is a threat of rattlesnakes. Jay actually recently had to remove one from our elderly neighbor’s backyard, the snake was right up against our fence! After spending some time in Old Town Murrieta, we decided to head out to a little field. I was hesitant stepping out there but kept an eye out. We only took maybe 10 steps when Lalo shouted, “Rattlesnake!” Mandee had nearly stepped on a good sized snake, we moved away as fast as we could, but Jay put on the big lens and got some shots of it to remember! Scary, but thankfully he didn’t bite anyone. And this is a warning to photographers and families going out into fields, please BE CAREFUL. Especially when you have little ones!
Back to the session…
Mandee & Lalo, we are super excited about your wedding under the willow tree! We hope that you love these photos that captured such a beautiful moment in your lives :) Cause we sure had a wonderful time capturing them.
