I had the privilege of taking Victoria and her boyfriend John out to Vindemia Estate Winery last Friday – it was the perfect morning. A little fog to diffuse the light, vibrant fall colors… While others were out battling the harried crowds of Black Friday shoppers, I watched the sun rise over the vine-studded hills of the Temecula Valley. It’s a hard life, I know.
Victoria is a senior at Hemet High this year, and I’ve had so much fun getting to know her. From the time we met at her Consultation, I knew she would make this shoot easy. She has this amazing blend of self-confidence, gorgeousness, intensity, and a bubbly personality.
Then there’s John, who seems like such a great match for her. He’s easy-going and strong. What a sweet (not to mention amazingly good looking) couple. (Hey, you know where to find me if you ever need a wedding photographer!
John, I think you need one of these in a large wall portrait. Wow, that’s some intensity. “Yes, that’s my girlfriend!” you can tell everyone .
It always kills me to have to choose which images to put up here on the blog for my clients’ sneak peeks… Especially with a shoot like this, it’s SO HARD to just pick a few! I think this next one would make a good magazine cover . Can you believe she has never done any modeling?
The house below is where Victoria grew up, amongst the trees of Idyllwild. I think she carries a lot of the beautiful, free mountain spirit with her still.
And a little retro beauty for ya…
I’ll leave you with one last shot from the top of the mountain – at The Point in Idyllwild.
Victoria and John, thank you so much for spending the morning with me. I had a great time, and I can’t wait to show you all your images – everything in my attempt to capture the beautiful life God has given you.
Cherish, Love, Remember Always,
