POMONA COLLEGE ENGAGEMENT | JEN AND JON
We recently booked Jen and Jon for their June wedding at Forever and Always Farm. We had to speed things up a bit because their wedding is only 3 short months away! Jon had already pick the perfect location to do their engagement session. I have never been to Pomona College in Claremont, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect but I am always up for new locations! When I arrived I was seriously so thrilled! I had no Idea this place was THAT beautiful. I arrived 30 min early to scope out a few places I wanted to shoot. There was soooo much to choose from! The architectural detail of the buildings was so amazing!
Jon and Jennifer are completely adorable and completely in love. Jon is a Biologist and Jennifer is an Optometrist and they actually met each other on Craigslist when Jennifer was looking for a room to rent. Jon owned a home and had placed an ad looking for someone to rent out one of the rooms in his house. Jennifer answered the ad and the rest is history!
They’re both so incredibly nice and fun to be around. They admitted to being a little nervous about their engagement shoot since they’ve never had professional photos taken, but we assured them there was nothing to be apprehensive about. After a few minutes they completely warmed up and it turned out to be so fun! We all were a bit hungry and thirsty for a glass of wine after our session so we headed out to one of the local restaurants and chatted over some yummy food. I always love hanging out with our couples. We get to know them so well and hear so many great stories about the two of them!
I caught a sneak peek on Jens phone of her dress and OHH M GEE Jon is going to be shocked! We kept joking that she is going to wear a giant black bag, trying not to give away any details! I can’t WAIT to photograph the two of you on your wedding day!!
Oh yeah, so John shot some behind the scenes video for me during this session. I seriously forgot he was there! Take a PEEK!
