Franciscan Gardens Wedding [Jeanette & Sean] / San Juan Capistrano Wedding Photographer

I had the opportunity to second shoot this beautiful wedding in the fall and I’m so excited to be sharing just some of my favorites today! Jeanette & Sean’s wedding took place at the always gorgeous Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano. I love this venue so much. The space is flawless and can be made into whatever your heart desires, not to mention the luxurious Bridal Suite which I could just photograph in all day! The surrounding area of the Los Rios District is every photographer’s dream with it’s rustic, fresh and natural open space. Brides-to-be, take note: You will definitely want to add this venue to your list of must-sees!

I loved working on this wedding with the talented Flawless Faces Makeup & Skincare Lounge and 24 Carrots Catering & Events! They made for a very beautiful and delicious day!

Congratulations, Jeanette & Sean!

Gross Family / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

I had such a great time spending time with this family! Jordan and her parent share such an obviously strong bond and it was a beautiful thing to watch.

After our shoot, Jordan and her dad were going to the Indian Princess night and Jordan was so excited! Indian Princess is a fabulous program for fathers and daughters, so if you have a little one at home be sure to check it out!

Enjoy & Happy New Year!

XO, Jessica

Kegel Family Holiday Mini-Session / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

This Holiday Mini-Session started out as a family shoot- but we all soon realized that Cody had stolen the show! How cute is that puppy? I wanted to wrap him up in my sweater and throw him in my camera bag. However, I figured they would probably notice ;-). Siera found me randomly through a feature on Style Me Pretty and was just so incredibly sweet! I couldn’t wait to work with her and her family. When I finally met them, I recognized her husband immediately! Travis and I had gone to elementary school together…far too many years ago then I’d like to admit! It was so great to see him all grown up and married to such a wonderful woman.

Enjoy these images of your beautiful family! And…Go Sandpipers!! 😉

XO, Jessica

Rhiannon & Payton’s Holiday Mini Session / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

I met Rhiannon & Payton’s mom, Patty while getting my crossfit on at Eternity Crossfit in San Juan Capistrano! Patty can dead lift and box jump with the best of them and I really admired her dedication and strength. This woman has arms of steel! When she asked me to photograph her girls, I couldn’t say no (mostly because I was scared of what she might do to me ;-)).

I had the privilege of photographing big sis Rhiannon a couple of months before this shoot for her acting head shots. She is bubbly, full of energy & charisma and such a blast to have in front of the camera! Keep an eye out for her; we may be seeing Rhiannon on the big screen in our future! Little sis Payton is such a doll! She totally looks up to her sister and just had the prettiest blue eyes; I could’ve photographed them for days! Together these two make the best sisters- they tease each other as sisters do, they play games and deep down they love each other with all their hearts.

Enjoy Rhiannon & Peyton’s Mini-Session! XO
