Matt + Jo An

Since the weather outside really does seem quite frightful, it makes me so happy to get to share Matt and Jo An's warm + sunny e-session with you. Jo An booked me over the internet so this engagement session was the first time I was able to meet both her and Matt. I had so much fun walking and laughing and traipsing around the neighborhood with these two as we explored San Juan Capistrano's historic Los Rios district. While Matt and Jo An are getting married next summer at Sisters' Five Pine Lodge, they currently live in Southern California where Matt is stationed in the Air Force. It worked perfectly to have their engagement session in Orange County - a place that always seems to have the most lovely evening light during the winter months. Matt + Jo An, thank you so much for making the drive to San Juan Capistrano for the afternoon. Getting to spend the day with you has me all excited for next summer. Your love and joy and infectious smiles will have me looking forward to August all throughout this cold and dreary winter!!

MerryMerry Christmas!!


I especially love Matt + Jo An because they never stop laughing. Throughout our entire session they were all smiles - making me one happy photographer myself!


Matt + Jo An told me they didn't know how to dance. And then I was all, riiiiight.
