As Summer in Orange County is coming to a close, I am getting super excited for Fall! I love wedding season so much, but I also really enjoy the many engagements that occur during this time of year. It’s always such a magical feeling watching these newly engaged couples begin their journey into marriage. I absolutely LOVE getting to be here for the beginning for all of the festivities! Engagement shoots always kick off this journey with a bang!

Getting to know Erika and Mario during their e-session was a blast! I think we all had such a great time at the San Juan Capistrano Orchards…and of course their pictures turned out amazing! Enjoy!

I have known Katie and Ben for quite some time now and I was SO excited when they got engaged. I was equally excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding day! If their engagement session at Live Oak Campground in San Juan Capistrano, is any premonition on how adorable their wedding photos are going to be…I am already over the moon with excitement! They came up with this cute concept all on their own, and I think they pretty much turned out flawless. Well, just take a look for yourself:)

I can’t believe it’s already time for this adorable Orange County family of three to become an even more adorable family of four! It feels just like yesterday we were shooting this little one’s newborn shoot. Time sure does fly by really fast, but it’s been so incredible to watch your family grow. Thank you for letting me be apart of this journey. I feel like I’m an honorary member of the Mewes family 😉 And ummm how beautiful does this mama-to-be (for the 2nd time!) look?! Incredible! Here’s to baby number 2 – you will love every moment!

Los Angeles never ceases to amaze me with their unbelievably unique venues. Kara and Daniel’s wedding at The Holding Company in Los Angeles was no exception! I think it’s been my favorite place to capture weddings – this year at least ;). Kara, I am seriously obsessed with your Sew in Love Bridal wedding dress. Maybe it’s just because you looked SO beautiful in it! Daniel, you looked great too…:)

Special thank you to Crystal with Chic and Stunning Events for putting on this wedding…it went off without a hitch! And of course to Casey with Flower Duet’s – those floral arrangements were to die for. Loved them so much! Oh, and that super delicious wedding cake by Portos Bakery. Just thinking about it right now is making my mouth water. Yum!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Acuna!! xoxo
