Tawny & Ryan were referred to me by one of my clients, the Alvarado family! I love when that happens :-) Tawny and Ryan are the sweetest couple :-) We had such a great time during their session..they were totally natural and had fun “pretending to like each other”..lol..just kidding!! They will be getting married at one of my favorite venues, Seven Degrees this September and I CANNOT wait!

Check out some of my favorites from their shoot!

Love the golden light..

One of my favs..totally hot!

My absolute favorite..I adore everything about this image!

So cute!

Tawny is gorgeous, isn’t she?

You know..I’ve always said that one of my favorite parts of a wedding are the portraits of the bride & groom. When I got married, these were the most important pictures to me..aside from the ceremony of course! So it’s only natural that I feel they are just as important for my clients to have. Sometimes when I’m preparing a blog post, I have to limit myself to only posting 4 or 5 portraits from the bridal session because there are just way too many that I love! Then as I was getting ready to work on the blog images for Caroline & Miguel’s wedding, I thought “I wish I could blog more portraits from their session..and then I realized..why COULDN’T I? All this time I’ve had these self imposed blog rules..so lame when I think about it now! Since I’m not a big fan of blog posts with a 101 images, I’ll keep this blog post “portrait” only.

So here you go..my absolute favorites from Caroline & Miguel’s portraits..I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Caroline & her girls looked stunning..the light was fantastic the day!

Caroline was absolutely glowing that day..she looked like a movie star!

We found this location purely by chance..I love the juxtaposition of the refinery and the natural field!

Love the light shining through her veil..

Love this one!

Of course, a simple & lovely portrait of the bride & groom. Congrat’s you two! You make such a beautiful couple and I wish you many years of love & happiness :-)

p.s. more images from their wedding coming in a future blog post :-)
