Jeffrey Trails Engagement Session

Jeffrey Trails engagement session photos:

Gloria and Bryant found me online at the end of last year after Bryant had organized an elaborate plan to propose to Gloria at a restaurant in San Jose. His friends had helped him to set up a heart shape in the gazebo area outside the restaurant where he popped the question after dinner.

Gloria and Bryant have been together for around six years after meeting in the final year of undergrad studies at UC Irvine. Gloria went on to become a pharmacist and Bryant a dentist, with their Jeffrey Trails engagement session incorporating a little taste of their professional lives.

Segerstrom Center For the Arts engagement session photos:

I was honored that Gloria and Bryant trusted me enough to book me solely through email and it wasn’t until we met up at the Segerstrom Center For the Arts for their e-session that we had the opportunity to chat in person. We hit it off from the very start and they were so easy going and fun to work with.

We began with a playful portrait of Gloria and Bryant in their white lab coats before exploring the walkways and architectural landmarks of the Segerstrom Center For the Arts. Gloria was in a velvet red cocktail dress while Bryant was in a navy suit, giving this e-session quite a formal feel.

I captured intimate portraits of the couple embracing and a playful shot of Gloria pulling Bryant along a walkway, as well as some intimate shots of them leaning up against an ochre red wall. I also grabbed a portrait of Bryant twirling Gloria along a hedge-backed path and a creative shot as she admired her engagement ring while Bryant looked into the distance.

We then drove over to Irvine and the Jeffrey Trails for a nature-inspired e-session, with Gloria changing into a floral dress while Bryant opted for a casual blue shirt. I captured portraits of the couple embracing amidst the leafy greenery of this picturesque residential area, with the ground blanketed in a unique tuft grass.

We utilized an underground tunnel for a shot of Bryant dipping Gloria and some leafless tree branches for a wintery feel, with the mid-afternoon light giving this Jeffrey Trails engagement session a really whimsical atmosphere.

Victoria Beach engagement session photos:

As the sun started sinking towards the horizon, we made the 30-minute drive down to Laguna Beach for a sunset e-session at Victoria Beach. After capturing a high-vantage, wide-angle shot of Gloria and Bryant walking hand-in-hand along the beach, I joined them on the sands to document some warm embraces overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It had been a really hot day, so the air was still quite warm, although the waves were a bit rough which meant we had to be a little careful.

Gloria had changed into a flowing white dress and Bryant was in a checkered shirt, adding to the romance of this beachside e-session. We incorporated the old castle at Victoria Beach and I captured a shot of Bryant carrying Gloria along the sands, ending the evening with an off-camera flash portrait in the post-sunset moments.

Jeffrey Trails engagement session photos:

I really enjoyed spending the afternoon with Gloria and Bryant and the opportunity to get to know them a little more and appreciate that they selected me to capture this Jeffrey Trails engagement session. I wish them the best of luck as they make their wedding preparations for later this year at the Coyote Hills Golf Club and look forward to reconnecting with them then.
