Summer Engagement at Irvine Regional Park

Share It On Your Social Media!

When I first received her message, I was in shock! Some loved ones laugh at me when I get shocked that old friends inquire about working together, but it’s true!
Every inquiry, whether it’s someone I know or someone new, I am still amazed that people have an interest in working together for their engagement and wedding experiences!
I was shocked to hear that Vanessa wanted ME as her wedding photographer (but honored as well!!).
EEKK! From high school days of random trips with mutual friends to now photograph this exciting time in her life!!

When she first inquired about her wedding day, our wedding days were only FIVE days apart. I called myself crazy for taking it on, but hey, I love my couples and felt the need to take on this one! I mean, I was shocked she wanted me to be the one to capture this legacy of hers and her fiance!
But… Over time, her spring wedding has now become a fall wedding!

As Vanessa and I prepared for her and Corey’s engagement, she took everything on with so much excitement and that made me that much more excited! I’m always excited but when I see the brides filled with joy, it warms my heart and fills me even more for engagement sessions!

We ended up picking Irvine Regional for their summery engagement session! When I say summery, it sure felt like SUMMER. Haha! With the 90 degree weather and full on humidity, we were dripping sweat, but with how sweet and fun these two are, you can’t tell in their engagement photographs!!

Through the sweat and between Vanessa’s cute summer dresses, we shared wedding plans, laughter, and some fun! What more could I ask for?

I remember when these two first started dating and now four years later they are planning their forever!

Vanessa and Corey, thank you for having us apart of your journey! We are so excited to continue hearing about your engagement stories and be there to photograph your beautiful wedding day next fall! 🙂
