San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session

San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session at Los Rios District

Hey guys!

I am SO excited to share Matt & Jori's San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session with you today! I have a special place in my heart for these two because I have been friends with Jori for a few years now. In 2014, we met working at a restaurant and hit it off so well that we decided to spontaneously plan a girls trip to Europe together! Crazy, I know! We traveled (ahem, *ate) our way around France, Italy, and Romania together making memories that I will always treasure.

Shortly after we returned home to the States, Jori was invited to a party to casually meet a blind date. But instead of hitting it off with her blind date, she ended up meeting Matt and hitting it off while she was waiting for the other guy to show up. Over the next couple of months, they kept running into each other through friends. Then one night, Matt helped Jori fix her flat tire and followed her home to make sure she made it safely. Major points Matt! It was then that he finally asked her out for their first date, and Jori gladly said yes.

After two years of dating, Matt finally popped the question and proposed at a beautiful dinner in Arizona, where Jori was least expecting it. And he did GOOD, check out her stunning engagement ring!

I finally got to meet her groom at their engagement session in San Juan Capistrano and he truly is the gentleman she always described him as. It is no secret that they are crazy about each other! Besides, they make the most beautiful couple ever! Matt and Jori, you truly are amazing together and I’m so glad that you’ve found one another. I can’t wait to photograph your wedding day at the Ranch at Laguna Beach in November. It’s going to be a very special day celebrating two very beautiful people.
