The lights dimmed atop the penthouse restaurant. All except the one chandelier above them. A maitre d’ appeared from the darkness, with a beautiful plate covered in strawberries. And there amongst them…there it was…a ring…and Tom took it from there.
Erin and I were grinning from ear to ear as we heard them describe the picture perfect proposal Tomas created for her, and we knew that this was a wedding we had to be at! We are so excited for their wedding coming up in October at the beautiful Chart House in Dana Point!
But I’m getting ahead of myself, because today we are anxious beyond words to share with you their engagement session at the San Juan Capistrano Mission. Erin and I have been wanting to shoot there since…well…forever. It’s a photographer’s playground with incredible textures, gorgeous light, and such history around every corner. Having these two for our first venture into the mission was truly spectacular; they were so much fun and have such a presence in front of the camera. We literally felt as though half of the work was being done for us with these two in front of the lens. Not only did we aim to capture the love and playfulness of Brittanie and Tomas, but also the romance and beauty of who they are when they’re together. Enjoy!
