With the holidays approaching and family coming to visit, my boyfriend Joel and I knew that life was going to be getting extra busy really soon. And although we are SO looking forward to it all, we wanted to make sure to do something special for just the two of us before we had a full house. As you may have seen in my last post, “Laguna Stay-cation” we recently celebrated 6 years together, and after 6 years we have A LOT of fun photos together, but nothing professional. This time of year calls for colorful plaid, cozy, sweaters, and snuggling up close. So we thought what better time of year than now to do our first couples photo shoot together! I ran across our photographer, Jessica Kaylene, on Instagram who’s local in our area, and after we chatted about the style of shoot we wanted (outdoors-y, rustic, warm) she suggested Peltzer Pines Tree Farm in Santiago Canyon. So it was set! Joel absolutely loves the canyons, so he made sure to scope out an area away from the trees where we could also get a shot of the beautiful foothills in all their glory…and I have to say, he did good!! Jessica was so easy and fun to work with, and HER PHOTOS! She did such an amazing job capturing us as a couple along with all the beautiful surroundings. I can definitely say our first couples photography was a positive one!
Have you and your honey been together for a while, or have you recently welcomed a new baby into the family, or even a puppy?! I encourage you to find a photographer near you, and capture some memories! Many photographers offer “mini shoots” so even on a small budget you can take home some treasured frozen moments in time. Joel and I are super happy we did, you will too!
