I met Juana and Javier through the first bride and groom I had the honor of shooting, Gretchen and Alan. I was so excited to get together with them for an engagement session, knowing they must be an awesome couple if they were friends with Mr. and Mrs. Pena! After some weather postponements, we finally had the opportunity to spend a morning together. Juana and Javier’s engagement session was right in the middle of the Christmas rush- so I’m just now posting it. The funny thing is, they have been married for just a little over 24 hours already! (I’m so behind on blogging!) I would have skipped straight to their wedding, but these images are too wonderful not to share. Besides, they did something that I would highly recommend to my couples: 1) they brought several clothing options to the session which changed it up and really gave us a great variety 2) they used their engagement pictures to create a guest book (It was a hit at the wedding!!).
Juana and Javier expressed to me at the beginning of their session that they were a little nervous about being stars in front of the camera, but it took about 3 seconds before I realized they were naturals. In fact, this happens to be one of my favorite client emails that came after they viewed their session:
We are so happy with the pictures! Javier is convinced that he can be a model now. You created a monster. LOL We had a great time at the photo session!
Thank you – we love your work and the guest book is going to look great!
I am convinced that both of them could grace the pages of any magazine.
Enjoy and stay tuned – lots more from their special wedding day coming soon!
Love this one…
One word: MODELS
When I saw Javier helping Juana with her shoe I couldn’t resist capturing the moment. It totally reminded me of Cinderella, only this slipper was red hot!
One way? To the chapel!
There is something about this one that blows me away!
