Colleen and PJ’s Engagement – Northern California Wedding Photographer
My goodness. This engagement session was just incredible.
While I am based in Roseville, and do the majority of my work in the surrounding Sacramento area, I am open to traveling. I’ve photographed weddings all over Northern California. It is so much fun getting to explore new areas!
This couple invited me to come to the Bay Area, where the bride currently lives, to photograph their engagement photos. I had a fun day driving over there and photographing by the ocean. The fall scenery made such a gorgeous backdrop!
In addition to a beautiful location, I also had a lot of fun being creative with this engagement shoot. PJ and Colleen have an amazing love story. They are originally from the same home town in the Philippines. They went to grade school together before Colleen’s family relocated to here in California. Thanks to the internet, a couple of years ago, these two got back in contact, fell in love, and have been in a long distance relationship for some time now. After deciding to get married, PJ recently moved here to be with Colleen and I am so happy that they finally get to be together. Since these two have spent the majority of their relationship living on different continents, they wanted to take portraits that represented how they got through it and how ecstatic they are to be re-united. They were full of ideas and we had a blast posing with love letters, passports, and Iphones-all the necessities for long distance lovers.
Thank you so much, Colleen and PJ for a very fun day! Congratulations, again. I can’t wait for the big day, next month.
