Casper’s Park Engagement Session [Danielle & Josh] / San Juan Capistrano Engagement Photographer

I just LOVE this couple, Josh & Reese Witherspoon Danielle 😉 But seriously, not only do they have Hollywood good looks but they are as kind, charming and madly-in-love as can be! Danielle & Josh are college sweethearts who have been together for six years and when you’re with them you can just sense their ease, their friendship and their deep knowledge that they are each with the person who makes them feel happiest and complete. They are best friends and it shows.

Between the gorgeous Fall surroundings, the outfits Danielle put together (I’m seeing a second job as a stylist in her future!), the true love, and the adorable signs this Bride made…this is easily one of my favorite e-sessions to date!

Enjoy you two! I can’t wait for your Villa San Juan Capistrano wedding and to document the start of your new lives together! It will be a beautiful day filled with love, commitment, family and what I assume will be dozens of amazing shoes and dresses 😉

XO, Jessica

Genuine Leather Wedding Albums / Jessica Holley Photography

Months of plotting, pinning  and planning came and went and just like that, so did one of the most magical days of your life: your wedding! You settle into your new, more calm post-wedding days and bask in the glow of married life. And when those wedding images are delivered, you get to relive that special time all over again! You excitedly post photos on social media and email them to family…and then, your disc of one of the most important days of your life sits next to your computer, collecting dust. Don’t be that Bride; don’t let your memories collect dust. 😉

I’m so excited to share our beautiful, high-quality wedding albums! We use only the best 100% natural leather in a variety of sizes and colors of your choice. All printing is done on thick, lay-flat pages with archival photographic paper. These albums are made in the good ‘ol US of A and are presented in a dust-cloth to keep your treasured album picture-perfect. Take a look at this sample album created from a recent The Villa San Juan Capistrano wedding. Your album is guaranteed to be a well-loved keepsake and a precious family heirloom!

Cozy At-Home Newborn & Family Session / Orange County Newborn Photographer

You may remember Gary & Carli from their maternity session last month. And my, how much can change in one month’s time. Baby Ryland is here and life will never be the same. The countless baby items that fill the house, the sleepless nights, the trying to figure it all out and mostly, the intense love that brings you to tears.

It’s a time that new parents will treasure forever. I love going to my client’s home for that reason. To shoot in exactly the place where it’s all happening. And as time inevitably passes by much too quickly, a little glimpse is captured to spark those emotions forever.

Congratulations, Gary & Carli. Your little man is perfect. The baby items will be stored away, he will sleep through the night and you will use Google much less often but that love will bring you to tears for the rest of your life.

Enjoy! XO, Jessica

Coto de Caza Maternity Session [Carli + Gary] / Orange County Maternity Photographer

I was so excited to shoot this session from the very first time I was contacted by Carli. There was something just magnetic about her excitement over her baby and I truly could not wait to document such an amazing time in she and Gary’s life.

When I met Carli and Gary it was so obvious just how excited and in love they are. Not only with baby Ryland James (love his name!) but also with each other. I know that they are going to make the most adoring parents and that this baby is never going to be put down. He is going to be spoiled with love (and possibly lots of sweets since his Grandma is owner of the DELICIOUS Nothing Bundt Cakes)!

Congratulations you two! The love you feel now for Ryland is just going to grow to strengths you never knew existed once you see his sweet little face. I am SO happy and excited for you!

I can’t wait to meet him and photograph all of his cuteness. All day now!

Enjoy! XO
