We couldn't think of a more perfect post to christen our new blog - than John & Kira's engagement photos! John and Kira have been fans of ours since Jessica Elizabeth Photography started up years ago. We thank them for all of their love and support over the years, and we were so excited for their engagement shoot. We have been looking forward to taking these photos since John's proposal to Kira at LAX.
We planned the date and location for the shoot several weeks in advance and the days leading up to the shoot had typical beautiful and sunny CA weather (although a little on the cold side). The morning and early afternoon of the shoot, it was gloomy, gray, and rainy- of course! When we meet up with them for the session, John mentioned that Kira was a little bummed about the gloomy day, but John had reassured Kira and said "Don't worry- they'll fix it." Ha ha. No pressure!
With a little creativity, some brightly colored balloons that we picked up on the way, and experience in finding the light- we were able to turn the sad looking day into a cheerful one. Mother nature also did us a favor and threw us some sunshine every now and then. It continued to rain during the shoot and helped us in creating one of our favorite photos of the afternoon! The rainbow that appeared was an amazing gift as well.
John and Kira- thank you for allowing us to be such a special part of your lives :) We love you guys and can't wait for your wedding!
