Mission San Juan Capistrano Engagement | Neeka and Garrett

By, August 18, 2017

When Neeka and Garrett chose the Mission San Juan Capistrano for their engagement session, we knew we were in for a romantic photoshoot. This historic site features charming stone arches, bright flowering gardens, and pure Southern California sunshine. The location provided a fitting backdrop for this couple’s classic style.

Throughout the shoot, Neeka and Garrett cut striking silhouettes against the Mission’s towering walls, whitewashed by centuries of southern California sunshine.  Here are a few of our favorite images created that day.

The Mission's courtyard offers ample opportunity for photos with depth and character. We stepped back and used a telephoto lens for this image, showcasing the background while utilizing the stunning flowers to naturally frame Neeka and Garrett in this scene.

We love to photograph with a shallow depth of field, which draws attention to our subjects by separating them from the dreamy softness of the background. In this photo, sunlight naturally filled the arched walkways surrounding the Mission's courtyard, providing flattering shade for Neeka and Garrett.

We're always looking for shots that will really pop in both color and black & white. Neeka and Garrett wore dark navy, which stood out beautifully against the textured backdrops at the Mission.

Window to the Future | Picturesque Rancho Bernardo Inn Ceremony

By, December 06, 2013

In wide open beautiful spaces, it’s easy to get distracted.  That’s why we love what this couple created for their wedding ceremony on the rolling green lawn overlooking the golf course at Rancho Bernardo Inn!

Anne and Dave wanted to add a backdrop that would help hone in the attention and enhance the space, without hindering the gorgeous view.  They called upon Isari Flower Studio to install a beautiful sheer arbor embellished with lush garland, which was pulled back to create a frame around the enamored couple. The look was completed with candle lit wood lanterns lining the aisle, giving the space just the right amount of storybook charm!

Now that’s a picture perfect window to their future together!
