Kylie + Daniel: Temecula Engagement Session

One of my favorite questions to ask an engaged couple is how they met. In Kylie + Daniel’s case, that answer is pretty unique! I asked this question of Daniel when Kylie had run back to their car and he said, “I met Kylie crashing a wedding.” That’s right! Daniel went to a wedding hosted by Kylie’s family and that’s where the romance began! Daniel lives in the Portland area and ended up proposing to Kylie at the Portland Japanese Garden, which is said to be one of the most authentic Japanese gardens outside Japan. I had so much fun getting to better know the two of them at their Temecula engagement session. It was also surprisingly chilly that day, and Kylie couldn’t have been a better sport about getting around (in heels, no less) the area for their Temecula engagement sesseion. Thanks for the fun shoot, guys!

    These are great! I love the ones with those cool needle like trees in the background and the ones on the bridge. What a great ‘how we met’ story too!
