I’ve always loved to watch love, not from the outside, but as an active participant. Photographing couples and families in love, it’s not just easy but inevitable that I immerse myself in their story and not just tell it, but feel it and live it too.
Such was the case with Damian and Vanessa. This beautiful couple and their story is stunning not because of their olive skin or striking features. Vanessa and Damian are stunning because their love is deep and honest and real. And I jumped right in last summer when we shot their epic engagement photos in Temecula.
Damian and Vanessa wanted to throw in a little South American old school country style to their photos. Boy wants girl. Boy takes flowers to win girl. Girl loves flowers. Boy gets girl. We used a vintage motorcycle from Damian’s family collection and we found a groovy property in the Valley to illustrate this sweet view of a young and beautiful love. Maybe I’m a little of a romantic, but how can you not get wrapped up in a story as lovely as this?
