The Mission San Juan Capistrano has to be one of my favorite places to shoot. The excavated ruins not only act as a fantastic backdrop but also aid in creating a romantic and mysterious setting. I believe locations can truly create a certain mood and the Mission certainly succeeds in doing so! That’s why I am so excited that it will also be home to our Love & Candy Sweetheart Sessions taking place on Sunday January 29th. That is going to be an absolute blast!
This session was Veronica and Greg’s first time visiting the Mission so it was fun to watch them take it all in and experience the mission throughout the shoot. Because of the tan and brick coloring throughout the grounds I thought it might be fun to have them in some brighter colors so they would really pop against the background and make for a fun juxtaposition. Vintage meets modern in a way. I had a fantastic time getting to know Veronica and Greg more and more throughout the shoot as we laughed and talked the afternoon away all while taking some great photos. I am truly excited to be working with them and can’t wait for their wedding this winter at Rancho Los Lomas!
