Usually I’m full of words to fill a blog post, but I’m having a hard time coming up with the right ones to fit Jenn & Rob. She’s been one of my best friends since the first day of freshman year. We’ve seen each other through highs & lows, she’s “Auntie” to my kids, and I am beyond excited that she’s getting married next year! I actually hadn’t met Rob in person until right before our session, but he’s been in the background of Facetime conversations and phone calls for the last year, so it felt like we knew each other already. Ever since Jenn started dating him, I knew he was the one for her (even if she didn’t know it yet). Her voice changes when she talks about him, she gets a goofy smile on her face just telling stories, and after seeing them together and spending the weekend hanging out, I can say that he is just as enamored with her. They’re a perfect fit. Silly, fun, and supportive; I only wish them the best.
For their engagement photos, we went out to a really pretty park in Ripon, CA. The green areas are amazing despite the drought, and now that its October, the leaves are starting to change and Autumn is in the air! Jenn and I spent some time shopping for her outfits the day before (ok, really, we found the flowy top AND teal dress in about 10 minutes, then walked around the store catching up since its been months since we saw each other) and I love how they coordinate perfectly with the feel of the location. Their style was spot on for photos! I especially love the Star Wars shirts that they threw on for the last few photos. The props they selected were meaningful to them making it easy to tell their story. “Bride to Be” & “Groom to Be” Starbucks cups- Rob is from Washington and loves coffee, they’ve visited the flagship Starbucks store and had many dates including their first and their one year anniversary where Rob popped the question. Jenn got all crafty and made the adorable “Your Smile Makes Me Smile” sign, to represent one of their inside jokes (that even makes an appearance on their wedding invite). Funny enough though, they forgot the frame at home and had to go back for it! All in all, I think the photos fit them perfectly. A collection of silly, sweet, romantic & geeky. So them. I can’t wait for the wedding! Its gonna be awesome!!!
