From The Bride…Our engagement session took place in the front yard of an old abandoned house in old Escondido. Somehow during the extreme drought Southern California has felt this year, our engagement session fell on a weekend of rain. An hour before the shoot, the rain stopped and we were able to continue umbrella-free. Though my hair was not a fan of the rain, it brought a touch of the fall season that we were looking for. Fall is my fiance, Cameron, and I’s favorite time of year. Our first date, the proposal and wedding have had / will have a fall backdrop and feel. There is something about enjoying the outdoors in a cozy flannel and boots. Our florist and photographer went the extra mile to say the least for our fall styled shoot. Flowers by Hilary brought our elegant, organic style into the picnic without making it too over-the-top and cheesy. She started with a warm blanket then worked her magic with creating a casual place setting complete with candles – a must for us! I was obsessed with the look of the naked cake and it tasted great too! We just love her style, she is incredible to work with. Dawn from Dawn Alexandra Photography is one of my favorite photographers! She has a fresh look in her photographs. She made Cameron and I feel completely comfortable in front of the camera which isn’t easy to do. Dawn knows we love the colors of fall leaves and you can see she incorporated them nicely. Cameron and I had the best time wrapped in each other and showing our love. We hope you enjoy the photos!
