Engagement Session | Longshadow Ranch Winery
Hmmmm…. how can one describe Brandon and Britni’s engagement session? How about freaking FABULOUS?!?! I think you will see by looking at the images below that these two little lovebirds are seriously just the CUTEST couple ever, and if this session is any kind of indicator of how fun their wedding will be – I am EXCITED!
When I arrived at their gorgeous wedding venue located in the crazy beautiful Temecula Wine Country I was immediately greeted by Britni’s adorable mama and papa ( Debbie and Steve ) who immediately made me feel like part of the family! You know your session will be amazing when mom and dad are super cool and just truly wonderful peeps…
And now I know where these two cuties get their sparkling personalities from – Britni is definitely a “Mini Me” of her gorgeous mama – these folks are seriously beautiful inside AND out… So I start scouting out the grounds and Steve starts lugging around the props as we decide where the light will work best, while mama bear goes inside to grab us a bottle of wine from the bar! YES – I know I know – I am a lucky girl – when shooting at a winery, you MUST taste the wine, right??
And now the FUN begins! Brandon and Britni arrive and we get to meet in person for the first time! Now let me just tell you – I am not a super “formal” kind of girl… No handshakes or awkward back pats for me… I see them coming and let them know I am a HUGGER – and just as I assumed, they are my kind of peeps and they are all smiles with HUGE hugs coming my way… So we have a glass of wine, chat for a bit as we walk around the grounds, and we are off and running!
The sun was a bit harsh for the first hour or so, so we walked a bit and let Britni do a few outfit changes while we waited for the ever perfect “Golden Hour” and let me just tell you – it was WORTH the wait! By this time we had a few glasses of wine, got to know each other better, and were now ready to get this party started!
One of the most memorable parts of this session for me, other than the absolute FUN and WINE, was the moment I watched Brandon gazing at Britni after she came out in her 3rd wardrobe change… She was wearing a super cute floral mini dress with some AMAZING pink heels and seeing the way he looked at her as she walked up gave me CHILLS! No joke… I was looking at a man so utterly and helplessly in love that it made me want to cry! And it was at that very moment I let him know that I would be a complete sobbing sap at their wedding… so get ready for the waterworks xo
A special thanks to Brandon, Britni, and their amazing parents for hanging with me in gorgeous wine country, and for trusting me to capture your BIG DAY! I cannot wait for September!!
Love you guys xoxo
