Corona Del Mar Engagement – Emily + AJ
With Emily and AJ’s wedding quickly approaching, I thought it was a great time to share their full engagement session on the blog! AJ has been a close friend of my husband’s for years, and he was even recently in a music project with him before AJ left for bootcamp in the Air force. AJ has an artistic eye and has some experience filming weddings, so when him and his fiancé Emily approached me to capture their day, I was flattered and excited! Emily and I have since had the chance to hang out organically at some of the events AJ and my husband have brought us to, and we’ve even had the chance to hang out at our place for drinks and movies! It’s so fun getting the chance to photograph friends’ weddings; everything is so comfortable and exciting. Having my hubby around while I’m shooting doesn’t hurt either (he will be a guest)!
Can we just talk about how great AJ did at styling his outfit?! I always offer styling help for my clients before their engagement session. Emily and I were gong back and forth on ideas, and I gave her some tips for coloring that worked for their location. AJ showed up in these awesome red pants and suspenders and Emily in her cute ivory dress. I complimented Emily on her styling talents, and she exclaims, “It was all AJ! He insisted on wearing those pants!” It’s even more perfect that they’re using a soft red in their wedding colors.
I love how natural they are together! It makes for the cutest pictures!
Emily and AJ will be getting married at Los Willows this August, and I can’t wait to share their special day!
