april + paul | mission san juan capistrano | orange county wedding photography

April + Paul have such a sweet connection, and history! Paul proposed at the park where they had their prom photos done years prior. They are both laid back, but love the classics or anything vintage…which is evident in their style and the locations chosen for their engagement session. We met at the historic Mission in San Juan Capistrano, and then perused through old town. So many great vignettes to shoot in and around! We’re looking forward to the wedding in October!

jordan + joshua | mt woodson castle | san diego wedding photography

One of our favorite spots has become a frequent stop for us as we were back out at Mt. Woodson for Jordan + Joshua’s garden wedding! These two have a funny + heartwarming story, and I’ll quote from what Jordan told me about their meeting ::

“Life is certainly one giant adventure, and our adventure began the year we met in 2010. We were next door neighbors living alone for our first time. We had crossed paths a few times with a simple passing hello but it wasn’t until months later when we formally met. I went to his apartment on a Friday night to say hello. Josh was hanging out with his friend Derek playing video games and he happily welcomed me in.

Our relationship strengthened as we hung out together at our apartments or Josh would invite me to get together with his friends. By the time 2012 hit, Josh decided to take a job in New York City and we decided to try long distance. This took a great deal of effort and put us through many tests. A year and a half later, I was asleep when Josh called me and told me he was going home from a job when all of a sudden my doorbell rang. I thought it was my friend Ryan who had gone out with friends and forgot his keys but when I opened the door, I was incredibly surprised. Josh had flown in from NYC. The next day, he took me on a hike and proposed to me, and of course I said yes…”

grace + david | mt woodson castle | san diego wedding photography

This fun couple met at their University…David being a graduate student and Grace finishing her under-graduate studies. They happened to have a mutual friend that introduced them at the library and they became instant friends.

These two incorporated a Korean ceremony {or P’ye-baek} after the traditional American ceremony that was full of laughs. Here the bride offers dates and chestnuts — symbols of children — to the groom’s parents, while sitting at a low table filled with other symbolic offerings. The parents offer sake in return, and as a final gesture they throw the dates and chestnuts at the bride, who tries to catch them in her large wedding skirt…foretelling of how many children the two will have! The family also sits across offering marital wisdom and gifts of money in white envelopes. It was cool to be a part of a cultural experience and capture their day!
