I couldn’t believe how the Rose Haven Heritage Gardens in Temecula were blooming during yesterday’s session with Tiffany and Tom! These magnificent roses and huge beautiful cacti were EVERYWHERE!  Tiffany and Tom are tying the knot later this year at Admiral Kidd on Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego! Their love is absolutely adorable! John and I had the best time during their session, and as you can see, the love they share is just as magical as that golden light behind them.

Tiffany and her fiance came all the way down from San Diego to do this lovely session with us. I haven’t been to the rose gardens since Steve and Elizabeth’s engagement session last year, so it was a nice treat when we showed up and the place was in full bloom with so many amazing roses. I must remind myself to do more sessions here because it is such a fantastic little gem in the heart of Temecula Valley.

When we first arrived, I asked Tiffany if there were any specific poses or images that they must have and she responded that they were a bit camera shy. REALLY? By the looks of these images, you could have fooled me! We like to coach our clients and have them warm up to the camera before we start shooting. We lightly guide them and teach them a few core poses so they are more comfortable in front of the camera. Plus John is there saying something hilarious that we all are laughing at. Our ultimate goal to evoke genuine emotion out of our couples and have FUN doing it.

The sun was just setting along the valley’s horizon. This spot is definitely one of my favorites!
