I always LOVE it when old friends email me and we get to reconcile and catch up! Christina is the perfect example of this. I haven’t seen this girl since sophmore year of high school! I was absolutely elated when she emailed me about taking pictures for her 1 year anniversary! The shoot was a surprise gift for her boyfriend David. He had absolutely no idea we were doing a photo shoot until the morning of! haha =)
Christina told me how she really liked my engagement pictures that I took at the UCSD biomed library. When I tried to probe them more to ask what they liked to do with each other, it seemed they enjoyed anything and everything as long as they had each other. Super sweet right?? We ended up deciding to hit up UCR so we could get some fun nerdy library pictures, as well as the UCR botanical gardens. I had no idea such a beautiful location existed at UCR!
Christina and David are the first couple who were willing to NAP with me in between shooting!! it was freakin awesome!!! haha We woke up bright and early, took some pictures in the botanical gardens, grabbed some grub, then went back to my car and napped (YES NAPPED!) for an hour and a half, the after we had a refreshing nap we continued shooting at UCR for the rest of the day. It allowed us to get pass that mid-day hump as well as avoid the awful high noon lighting. Best shoot ever! =)
Thanks guys for such a fun filled day! I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do!
There was only one solo dandelion! Of course we had to pluck it and make a wish! ^^
Anyone heard of the song Calculus by 2-gether? definitely a 90’s thing ^^
I really love this picture, we used David’s glasses for this one!
UCR Library was massive!
This shot was inspired by Daniel Hoffman =)
Huh? Wah? deoxyribonucleic what?
We saw an abandoned golf cart, and I totally made them hop on it haha =D
The pink blossoms were so beautiful!
