As a photographer, a crucial part of my job is to make sure my clients feel relaxed and comfortable in front of my camera. One of the first things 99% of the adults I work with say is that they feel awkward getting pictures taken. That’s exactly what Stephany and Thomas said to me when I met them. As you can see by the photos below of their engagement session at The Mission – it wasn’t true for them (and it isn’t true for you)!
Before I go on and gush about this couple, I’ll tell you this. It’s not that you feel or look awkward in front of a camera. It’s that you probably, at one point or another, felt uncomfortable getting your pictures taken – and that discomfort may have translated into your finished photos. That’s why I take my job seriously – I will guide you through your photos so you don’t have to wonder what to do, how to pose, or what happens next. If you can follow directions, you’ll be fine. ;)
Ok…now back to this adorable couple and their perfect engagement session at The Mission San Juan Capistrano!
The Mission San Juan Capistrano Engagement Photos
I officially have all the heart eyes for Stephany and Thomas after spending a few hours with them. Seriously, they could not be sweeter together and I just love the way Thomas grounds Stephany. A relationship is all about balance, right? And let’s not fail to mention Stephany’s stunning ruby dress! Totally swoon worthy!
It’s easy to see that Stephany and Thomas share a very special connection, and I cannot wait to see them become husband and wife in a few short months! They knocked this engagement session at The Mission out of the park, and I think their wedding photos will be anything but awkward looking! Stay tuned for more on that!
These photos are just so natural and lovely! Love the sense of fun.
