One of the things I love most about wedding photography is that I’m always meeting nice new people, and Jenna and Connor are two of the nicest. At first, I met up with only Jenna because Connor was deployed in the Navy at the time. He has been stationed on a ship near Japan. There was a tiny window to schedule our engagement photography session because Connor’s ship was coming to California for only one week then heading back to Japan until December. I was so happy that we were able to meet up at the Placerita Nature Center in Santa Clarita to take engagement photos. It was unfortunately one of the hottest days of summer, topping out at 106 degrees Fahrenheit, but these two were such troopers. They didn’t let the heat get to them and were all smiles, happy to be together.
Having been in my own international long distance relationship before getting married, I can definitely relate to making the most of your time together. It sounds like they had a fun-filled visit with homemade cakes (Jenna is a professional baker), lots of In & Out burgers, and the Antelope Valley Fair. I can’t wait for their March rustic wedding at Rancho Camulos Museum!
