I met this super sweet couple in Temecula Wine country in California for a lovely engagement shoot. The weather was partly cloudy and would hold sunshine for a few minutes and then go back to cloud cover. So I new it would be a beautiful, yet spontaneous day!
Our first shoot location was in the Oak Mountain Wine Cave which is the first for the Temecula Valley. We started there to get to know the couple, learn how comfortable they are, and warm up to being in front of the camera. These two truly are incredible because as soon as we started, they brought the magic! They are the sweetest and most loving couple, with such a genuine love for each other. It really made our job so much easier. I love the ability to just step in with a couple and let their true love and display of affection really take over as if I am not there.
After the wine cave we headed outside into the Oak Mountain courtyard & Vineyards. We were lucky when we went out because we found a little bit of sun peaking through a large cloud cover. Any sun we could get I would jump to to occasion and try and get as much photos as we could.
After shooting at Oak Mountain Winery we headed to Lorimar Winery. There we shot in a beautiful Orange Grove right in front of the entrance to the winery. After we shot in the Orange Groves we headed just down the street to Ponte Winery where we finished our shoot a little past sunset. Here we captured my favorite shots with a beautiful mountain scape background, winery & a lovely hotel. Ponte Winery is filled with so much character, it makes shooting here so fun to capture all the surrounding beauty.
The whole shoot was a success! I had a blast with these two and enjoyed hanging out and joking along the way as well as getting to know them. I am beyond excited for their big day! I can tell it is already going to be one of my faves this year! They have such a fun, playful and genuine love that is just so fun to capture!
