San Diego, California
I have been so excited to photograph Annette and Ryan's engagement session for some time now. Annette is a friend I met while volunteer shooting Ballet Folklorico at UC Riverside. She was one of the students working the event. I asked if she would like to pose for portaits in exchange for custom prints and she said yes! We did her session with her sister Stephanie at Balboa Park and they came out beautifully. All of the Navarro sisters are beautiful, so it's easy to make them look good.
Annette's initial photo shoot was years ago. So, when we thought of places to shoot Annette and Ryan's engagement pictures, Balboa Park came to mind. It's a wonderful place to take portraits because of its variety of architecture and foliage. I love it there!
Annette is a perfect blend of beauty, intellect and ambition. She's also very kind and giving. Ryan is one lucky guy, I can vouch for that. I have to admit I wanted to meet Ryan because I feel a little protective of Annette, in a father-like way. Ryan is a fire engineer and a very personable individual. I can say I feel very good about him. And I could tell he really loves Annette and she loves him too by the way they interact and look at each other.
I can hardly wait to photograph their wedding in July. I know it will be a pleasure and the photos will be wonderful because they are such lovely people inside and out. Thank you so much Annette and Ryan for honoring me with the privilege of photographing your most special day.
