San Juan Capistrano Engagement – Charlene and Chris

March 21, 2016

The moment we entered the San Juan Capistrano Mission with Charlene and Chris, it was clear this was going to be a magical engagement session.  Cozying up under the stunning Spanish architecture, our lovely couple looked like they had been transported from the set of a period film.  Charlene, with her short white lace applique dress, and Chris, wearing a perfectly cut white and navy outfit with tan oxfords, were turning heads in this beautiful setting.

We could have stayed there all day, but Charlene and Chris had another enchanting location in mind, so we drove to the Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park for a second look.  Here, Charlene broke out a blush pink maxi, while Chris changed into a light blue chambray shirt with khakis.  In the breathtakingly green hills, with perfectly wispy clouds in the azure sky, these two looked as if they had stepped, hands clasped, from the pages of a Jane Austen novel.

Having met in a Cornell high school summer program, they began dating in college, and after a few years of dating long-distance, this couple of six years is thrilled that they both now live in San Diego!  After such a stunning engagement session, we can’t wait to be with them as they begin their next chapter together this May, at what will certainly be an unforgettable wedding!
