Kayleen + Micah: Rancho Santa Margarita Engagement Session

I love when wedding clients choose an engagement session location that has meaning to them. Kayleen + Micah’s Rancho Santa Margarita engagement session took place at Lago Santa Margarita. Kayleen lived with her parents in Rancho Santa Margarita at the time she and Micah met, and they spent several dates wandering around the lake. It’s one of those “hidden gems” in Orange County that’s a great place to do a variety of activites: work out, walk your dogs, or, of course, stroll hand-in-hand with your date. The light was gorgeous during our shoot, as was the location, but my favorite part was definitely how much fun Kayleen + Micah had interacting during the shoot. I know it can be a little intimidating to get behind the camera, so I really focus on giving a couple light posting instructions and then just letting them be themselves. “Let them be themselves” means, in this case, Micah really knows how to make Kayleen laugh! :) Thanks for the fantastic shoot! Can’t wait for your fall wedding at Coto de Caza!
