San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session by Stephanie Ann

United States

After the abundance of pretty details from today's From Inspiration to Reality shoot, we thought we would wind things down a bit with a sweet engagement session sent to us by the fabulous Stephanie Ann. With hints of vintage and a gorgeous field, this e-session really captures the LOVE without being too over-styled or fussy. It's simple, it's sweet and it's the perfect ending to a pretty day.

Ruby and Travis wanted a fresh, romantic and whimsical engagement session, so I took them to San Juan Capistrano to play around the gorgeous hillside. Luckily for us, this spring has given us lots of greenery. We brought along a green vintage trunk that was a flea market find as well as a gorgeous Murano glass lantern that was bought on a trip to Venice, Italy. I love bringing the indoors out. It really is such a simple way of creating a simple ambiance. Ruby really has a knack for details and was super excited when she found these fabric flowers in the window display at a local boutique. She asked if she can have them, and the store said "no problem" since they were getting ready to redo their display anyway . uh . score!!! Ruby also wanted to have fun with a little word play so she brought along Scrabble. Word of the day - L-O-V-E - of course!
