More pics from the surprise proposal at the vineyard. These lovebirds 😍 were so adorable and naturals in front of the lens.
Some of the coolest things about my job are meeting great people and being a part of the special events and milestones in their lives. Recently. I got to photograph a surprise proposal! Allen reached out to me because he wanted to propose to his girlfriend at a Temecula winery. We worked out all the details and with some help from the Temecula Carriage Co., came up with the perfect location for him to pop the question. The couple took a carriage ride around the winery and stopped at a beautiful outlook. Luckily, I didn't have to hide in the bushes like a stalker because the carriage driver told Jackie I was the staff photographer. Everything worked out perfectly and it was such a sweet and romantic moment to witness. Jackie was so surprised that we were all in cahoots! Lol! Congratulations Allen and Jackie!
I'm just getting caught up on some blogging and realized I haven't shared nearly enough images of this gorgeous young lady. She did so great at her session. A natural model! Moms, it's not too late to schedule a session for your soon to be graduating senior. Don't just settle for the typical yearbook photos. Let's plan a session that showcases your teens personality and uniqueness. To see more images from this session, link in profile.
What a difference editing makes! Swipe left to see the difference between applying an Instagram filter and professional editing. The magic doesn't just happen behind the camera. It's only half the work. The rest is done behind the scenes in post processing. I consider images to be like a diamond in the rough. Each one is enhanced and polished to perfection to bring out its full beauty and potential. The differences can be subtle or dramatic.
As the year is winding down, it's time to change gears a bit. I'll still be doing weddings but also family sessions. I look forward to meeting new families and for my past families, seeing how their little ones have grown. Don't wait until the last minute. Book your session now before the holidays get into full swing.
As summer comes to a close, I always have mixed emotions at this time of year. I'm excited at the thought of being able to catch up on my to-do list but sad at the thought of how many summers I have left with my kiddos until they are grown and living their own lives. For all the moms out there who struggle with balancing a career and family life, I see you.
A beautiful wedding and emotional day. Lots of tears, laughter and love for this couple who have been through a lot in the last few months. Tragedy struck before the wedding and unfortunately, the bride's parents were unable to attend. But the couple was surrounded by so much love and support from their family and friends. I was honored to be there, documenting every moment. Congratulations Amber & Luke! 💕 Venue: @martinjohnsonhouse Coordinator: @winsomebrides Photographer: @jaleaphotography Dress: @dangelo_bridal Make-up: @lindsayannmua Hair: @tmcolour Flowers: @simplyadinafloral Bakery: @danielaskitchensd
