Riley Wilderness Park portrait session photos:

Photographing Georgia and Michael’s e-session was a particular honor for me, as this warm, fun-loving couple are fellow wedding photographers and videographers. We have worked together at weddings in the past, and it was a real privilege to know that they liked my work enough to invite me to be their photographer for the afternoon. From the Riley Wilderness Park portrait session photos to the Star Wars-inspired night photoshoot at Soka University, this e-session was filled with a lot of laughter and love!

Riley Wilderness Park portrait session photos:

My wife Charlene, actually assisted me during this portrait photo session, and we met up with Georgia and Michael in the late afternoon to head down to Orange County and the beautiful Riley Wilderness Park. Its open grassy fields and sprawling trees are perfect for creating that whimsical ambiance, particularly in the hour just before sunset.

I feel that these Riley Wilderness Park portrait session photos really portray not only the genuine love between Georgia and Michael, but also their undeniable sense of humor. Whether it was capturing intimate embraces and tender moments, or “insider” jokes between this easy-going couple, this Riley Wilderness Park e-session was a real pleasure. One of my favorite moments was when Michael stepped behind the camera to photograph his bride-to-be!

Soka University portrait session photos:

We then headed from Riley Wilderness Park to the nearby neighborhood of Aliso Viejo and its Soka University for a night photoshoot. I love the minimalist lighting along the walkways of this campus, and coupled with the evening attire and bright red dress of Georgia, I thought these e-session photos really exuded sophistication. Georgia and Michael are both avid Star Wars fans and they even brought along their own light sabers as props to add a bit of extra drama!
