Out Door Bridal Boudoir

It was a beautiful morning at Owl Creek. I loved all the detail, Touched by Time Vintage Rentals put into setting up this particular out door bridal boudoir themed shoot. The soft vintage details brought a romantic tone to the shoot. Here are some of the less risqué photographs captured.

Jenny & Frank Engagement Session- Knitted Love

In a month Jenny and Frank will give their lives to one another. I am beyond excited for them and was honored to photograph their engagement session! Jenny and Frank are the kind of couple everyone loves. Fun, laid back, adventurous and sweet! I truly believe soul-mates have found one another! Digital cupid brought Jenny and Frank together through Eharmony. “Since we met on line, our first date was really the first time we met in person. That always comes with some awkwardness but this time it went amazingly well. We met for drinks at Jakes in Del Mar and spent hours talking with realizing how much time went by. Our second date quickly followed, we had dinner and a moon light picnic in La Jolla. It was on feb 29th (leap year). We really count that as when we started dating. I think Frank planned it all along to make anniversaries only once every 4years :-).” After a year of dating Frank whisk away Jenny for a weekend of anniversary celebration. Frank took Jenny to Coronado for a romantic gondola ride. “It seemed like it was out of a movie, the sun setting, the gondolier singing and the man of my dreams proposing with my grandmothers ring.” CAN I JUST SAY I AM swooned!

The Engagement Session:
Jenny and Frank describe themselves as a laid back, fun loving, silly, creative and just a little bit of FUNKY couple! Knowing this … we knew we would have the green light to construct an out of the box engagement session! Let the fun begin! Jenny and Frank wanted to depict an older version of themselves! Having tons of vintage props provided by Lucky Street Production, a loving, knitting and ironing housewife and a taken care of happy hubby was brought to the table, as an idea. The session overall had a 50’s hubby and housewife vibe. A vintage kissing booth was also used as a photo prop.

Jenny and Frank I wish you a long healthy life of love, respect, kindness, successes and romance together!!! Congratulation!!! You guys have found your match!

Tammy & Kyle- Engagement Session- Breakfast in Bed

Love, chandeliers and billy goats, theses are a few of my favorite things. Spent an exceptionally gorgeous Monday morning at Two Sisters Farms, photographing the soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Phipps. Tammy & Kyle’s engagement session was nothing short of spectacular! Touched by Time Vintage Rentals fashioned the awesome idea of “Breakfast in Bed”. The bed of the truck would be used as a platform for the lovely breakfast scene. Tammy rocked a scarlet red plaid long sleeve, red lips and a black crinoline like skirt . Kyle wore a white button up, black suspenders and a pair of jeans. Together they looked beyond adorable! I spent a good portion of the session laughing because of how lovey dovey Tammy and Kyle are together. There was a lot of eye contact, kissing and hugging between them. They have amazing chemistry:) Clearly, soul mates have found one another. Tammy and Kyle, I’m looking forward to photographing your wedding in April!!!!

Love Letters

Deep passionate young love, chapters of separation, love letters and together again at last…. Sound familiar? As Devin and Emily shared their love story with me, my mind played a parallel story written by Nicholas Sparks. The Notebook is responsible for swooning countless hearts across the world. Especially, after it was brought to the silver screen and Ryan Gosling went through hell and high water to prove his love… shirtless. That same element of bottomless passion Mr. Sparks wrote about does existent. I’m a witness to it. Emily and Devin have it. It was so important for me to show their love story through photographs. We collectively decided to bring to life the theme of love letters. Emily and Devin’s love letter writing ways began in high school. For our first scene we decided to photograph at Temecula’s airport. I wanted to show separation. It was important to show Devin and Emily parting ways. A few photographs show even though there is physical distance, there isn’t distance at all within their hearts. For our next location, we photographed at the beautiful Humphrey’s Estate nestled in foothills of Temecula, CA. Touched by Time Vintage Rentals and I both loved the idea of creating a private space for Emily to write love letters to Devin. We decided that space would be in a charming greenhouse. Nancy and Kelly, owners of Touched by Time Vintage rentals always stop my heart with their stylized sets. I adored the set they put together for Emily and Devin. Chandelier, birdcages, aged writing desk, typewriter, roses, a chocolate box, and of course love letters garnished the greenhouse. There I would photograph Two halves becoming one. Devin would surprise Emily. All the stars would align and love letters would go flying! Which was so much fun to photograph. I can’t wait to photograph Emily and Devin’s wedding in July 2014. I look forward to hearing them read one of the most important love letters they will ever write to one another, their vows.

Special Thanks to Touched by Time Vintage Rental, Humphrey’s Estate and Pauline Castillo, H&M artist.

Follow your senses,
Syd
