Engaged Jen and Tyler

It was so fun to meet Jen and Tyler at their engagement session.  It's been fun to get to know these two on the phone and via email but finally I got the real deal.  I loved how fun and supportive they are of each other and how much they value creativity.  They are getting married at Underground Elephant as well.  I'm sure their guests are going to have an epic night.

Tara and Jason Equestrian engagement

Tara and Jason won me over on a rainy Sunday in San Juan Capistrano.  I loved meeting their family and getting to walk the property where their wedding will take place.  Donna Urban introduced me to Tara, Jason and Tara's mom and we went to scout the ceremony and reception locations.  I loved taking the backroads on Tara's family property and getting to envision what the big day will be like.  I even got to meet Tara's grandfather.  Although it sprinkled and sometimes downright poured we made the best of it and got some beautiful images.  How cute are their dogs!  I couldn't be more excited to meet the rest of the family, see Tara in her wedding dress, and watch how Donna transforms one of the most lush green spaces into something perfect for Jason and Tara.  xoxo Suzanne

A land and sea engagement session for Laura and Andrew

These two beauties were a lot of fun.  I've spoken to Laura a few times on the phone but it was nice to meet them both in person.  I admired how Laura and Andrew could be both glamorous and free.  Laura had such a clear vision of what she wanted I had a breezy time following her lead.  She had gorgeous outfits picked out and we had chatted about locations and the feeling we were going for.  We started out at Balboa Park one of my personal favorites and then headed over the to beach where Andrew proposed.  The sunset was lovely and the low tide made for some dramatic backgrounds.  It felt very serendipitous all around.

Surfer's engagement session : I heart Morgan and Adam

Oh I love when people want to have fun.  Fun is one of my primary motivations.  Morgan and Adam are entrepreneurs who work hard and live it up in their spare time.  I can so relate.  So I met them at their new place in Del Mar we popped down to the beach and took a few portraits and then went surfing.  The end.  True story.  =)
