Fresno photographer | Engaged | Kristen + Jordan
There is nothing I love more than a couple that makes their engagement session so personal to them and their love. Kristen and Jordan took me into their little world one Saturday afternoon to a property so sacred and special to their family history. The buildings that once stood and are barley standing was Kristen's great grandmother's house. It was destroyed back in the 1920's and has never been touched since. Her grandmother built a home for her family soon after, which this property surrounds, and is still her home to this day. I was so fascinated hearing their story and exploring this once home. It was like taking a step back into time. Not only did they include an amazing location, but they brought so many special props. For instance, the giant "L" for the first letter of their soon to be last name, the bike which was once old and ugly was gorgeously restored by Jordan, and the quilted blanket which was handmade from their grandmother out of old clothes that were worn by family. I am so appreciative of just how personal and special all of this was to them. I am so humbled and so grateful they chose me to photograph their love, and their rustic vintage wedding in June. It will be nothing sort of AMAZING!
Here are just a few of my favorites from their session...
I suggested to Kristen and Jordan that they should take at least one thing from the rubble, and put it in their new home after their wedding, to sort of carry that special piece of history with them. They took my advice and kept this sowing machine!!
Look at that rock!! Nice job, Jordan.
