- Wedding: June 2012
I know I’ve been MIA lately on these boards, but I just HAD to share these engagement pictures I took recently.
My fiance and I took another round of engagement photos with our photographer, Jhovany Quiroz (http://www.quirozphotography.com), because we wanted to have a couple pictures from different eras for a DIY invitation booklet. The booklet would have the story of us with pictures next to the text, and the pictures were going to be from different time periods since I am a history teacher and I wanted to do something history-related. It would also have a library ticket holder on the inner front flap with cards that have venue/website information, and the back would include an RSVP postcard the guests could send.
These pictures are for the 1950s, but we’ve been taking a bunch of pictures from different eras (1920s-1990s). Of course, we did not always enlist the help of a photographer for some of these pics (since that would have started to get WAY too expensive), but the ones we took with Jhovany were DEFINITELY the best. He’s been doing an AMAZING job on editing, angling the camera, capturing certain moments, positioning our poses, coming up with ideas, etc. so we are SUPER excited about sending these pictures out. I could go on and on about how great his work is, and how I would TOTALLY recommend him for anyone in the Los Angeles/So Cal Area (which I DO BTW), but I don’t want this post to sound like a review, and besides, the pics speak for themselves.
They were taken at the Santa Monica Pier, including the surrounding area. There were a LOT of people at the pier, so this engagement photo session was somewhat of a mission. My poor FI had a sore back the next day from carrying that giant teddy bear around everywhere we went…
Oh, and NO, he did not win it at the fair 🙂 We bought that thing at Costco for $30 a few weeks earlier for our place~I kind of see it as a big, fluffy body pillow with a cute face 😉
Anyways, what I love best about the way these pictures turned out (aside from the BEAUTIFUL editing that give them that great vintage feel)~is that I really feel like these are the pictures that will ALWAYS bring a smile to my face whenever I look at them. I really, really love how sweet and innocent they are, which is something that encapsulates the feeling I get about my engagement with my FH.
Thank you SOOOOO much Jhovany for taking these pictures.
