I’m always on the hunt for the best spots in CA to feature my couples. When I found the Niguel Botanical Preserve, I knew I had to do an atmospheric, romantic engagement shoot there. The gardens in the preserve create a unique and enchanted backdrop, and the private, secluded hilltop setting makes for the perfect scenery!
After deciding to do a shoot there, the search was on! Enter on the scene: Jasmine and Jeff! Capturing their genuine, gentle love made the session so enjoyable.
This couple has the sweetest story! Jasmine and Jeff met at college, and now both have careers as nurses. They’ve been together for over six years, so you can just see their friendship and companionship in these sweet photos.
Jasmine and Jeff decided to spend their lives together during a wonderful proposal in Lake Tahoe at sunrise. Can that get any more romantic?!
I’m so glad I had the chance to meet them and help them reflect on their engagement and their future together, and Niguel Botanical Preserve is definitely one of my favorite spots to shoot now!
