Santa Cruz Engagement Photography {Andrea & Kevin}

I had such a great time with Andrea and Kevin last weekend. They chose the most beautiful location for their engagement session-a blossoming apple orchard. I loved how genuinely happy and comfortable they were together. It was a perfect evening. Well, perfect with the exception of my car battery needing a jump at the end of the shoot and Andrea’s dad and sister coming to my rescue…just slightly embarrassing. They are lovely people, though and they made me feel as if they do that sort of thing all the time and that it was no big deal. I have awesome clients.

Two beautiful people with beautiful hearts…I can’t wait for their wedding!

    Hi Yen! Thanks for the message. Unfortunately, I do not have a name or address for the orchard. I believe that it was on Pleasant Valley road in Corralitos. It is private property, my clients knew the owners which is why we were able to shoot there. However, there are countless orchards in the area if you drive around. Hope this helps!
