My favorite moment? When we asked if they would mind doing a piggy back shot, and she said "Can we really??" :D
Turns out, Eddie is usually wearing his piece and she never gets a piggy back ride. Even though both of their jobs require them to be tough, this was one of the sweetest engagement sessions EVER. Francesca & Eddie can bring out the FIERCE - but they also know how to be silly ;)
Francesca & Eddie wanted to do their session at the beautiful Terranea Resort. We had to schedule and reschedule and reschedule again because for once Southern California weather was just not cooperating. But finally we had the perfect afternoon.
You can tell a man's love by the way he looks at his girl.
She knew from the moment we had our first meeting. Vintage. Classic. Love.
She wanted her pictures to portray everything romantic that your wedding day is supposed to be.
As we drove for what seemed like miles and miles, we finally arrived at the Mission Inn in Riverside. It was then that we finally realized the beauty that had captured Sonia's heart and imagination. The perfect setting for two people in love.
As we rode the tiny tiny elevator to the top floor, Julio's eyes were bright with excitement about the amazing room they had been given. I couldn't imagine a more romantic place to spend your first night of the rest of your lives.
Sonia and Julio, thank you for inviting us to take part in your beautiful day. May each day be as full of love as this one.
Last Saturday we met up early, early for a Saturday not filled with working that is. We went down to Urth Cafe for delicious breakfast foods and coffee (although my pregnant self really just wanted a bagel, cream cheese and one of their amazing chocolate shakes).
They seated us outside, under the warm november California sun. It was crowded but not too crowded.
We went over dates, clients and times and then we just talked. Catching up on things that had nothing to do with lenses, contracts or portraits. It was brilliant :)
