Alice + Angel | Orange, CA Engagement Session
Since I first pick up a camera in 2010, I’ve learned so much more than the X’s O’s of being a photographer. Photography has helped me learn about myself, about others and about the way I look at life in general. It has truly opened my eyes to a world I would have never imagined and for that I am so grateful. But one of the things I’ve learned and am reminded of each and every day is that … photography is a gift. It is the gift of capturing precious moments with the click of a button, a way to tuck the footprints of your life into a safe place, a wonderful way to remember and relive a moment that you hold close to your heart. This gift means so much to me and I have always been an obsessive gift-giver, so I guess I’ve truly found my calling 😉
Last year a colleague from work (as a journalist) purchased an session to gift to one of her closest friends, Alice and her fiance Angel. They already had a photographer for their wedding, but my colleague Christina, wanted to give them an engagement session. These are gestures that warm my heart because I honestly don’t think there’s a better gift than photos … although maybe I’m a bit biased?! 😀
Here are some of our favorite images from this lovely couple’s engagement session at Irvine Regional Park in Orange, CA. It was a gorgeous day filled with sunshine and love notes ~ the kind you find on a music sheet, because during our session, Angel pulled out his guitar and played a special song for his gorgeous bride-to-be. How ridiculously sweet is that? Yep, sunshine and music sprinkled with love, it was perfect …
Special thanks to Christina for sending Angel + Alice our way! We had such a great time capturing this special time in their lives. And warm hugs to this beautiful couple ~ hope your Wedding Day was filled with absolute bliss!!!
