A message from the bride

Describe your experience with finding the perfect location for your PreWedding Session: Well, since our wedding photos will have a lot of greenery, we wanted these images to be a bit different. This way, our images have different looks and don’t look exactly the same.

When you learn more about the history of this mission, it makes it that much more special.

When we checked out San Gabriel Mission, we knew this would be the perfect place for Rene to capture our most natural moments.

What are your recommendations/tips for couples before/during their PreWedding Session? This is a special time for you to have some fun before your big day, and take it all in. Remember how you and your fiancé interact alone and don’t be afraid to be yourselves.

During the session, it will probably bring forth a lot of emotions, try hold on to those moments and just trust Rene. Those are the cutest moments and having it all captured is just so sweet.

Describe the moment he proposed: The moment he proposed, I was speechless, and on cloud nine. I just couldn’t believe it. The love of my life, and my best friend, was going to be my husband. The best is yet to come, we are about to begin new chapter of this life together, it really still feels like a dream!

Interesting/fun facts about the couple or session: Before we have a drink together, it is always a must for us to click our glasses and say a “cheers to life!”. It just sets great vibes during the moment, and it is our thing!
