Meet Janica and John. They are getting married and well, we love them. Maybe not as much as they love each other, but it’s a pretty close race. These two met in Utah where Janica was working at a tanning salon. Hey, a lady’s got to do what a lady’s got to do to get some sun! John fancies himself as somewhat of a “smooth operator” so when he went to get his “sun on” he flashed his pearly whites and boyish smile (as seen below) thinking small talk would do the trick. Janica, being the polite lady she is, obliged and engaged but John wasn’t fooling anyone least of all his lovely muse. He knew he was going to have to bring out the big guns if was going to leave an impression in hopes to take their tanning bed small talk to the next level. One day after tanning and usual game of “how you doin’s”, Slick Rick err we mean John, left only to return about 30 mins later to look for his phone that he, A-HHHEMM “left”. Clearly it was an attempt to spend quality time with Janica, after all, nothing sparks the “spark” like being on your hands and knees and rummaging through drawers looking around for a cell phone right? Finally Janica offered to call his cell phone to hear it ring. Alas, there was no ring because it ended up being in his car the whole time, and THERE ladies and gentlemen is the BIG GUNS to John’s master plan. Long story short, he got the number and the girl. Good on ya’ John…Good on ya!
We all met up at one of our favorite spots to shoot, the Irvine Fields at Quail Creek Park. The light and views here are EPIC and these two are amazingly fun! Now on with images! Janica has some of the most piercing blue eyes we have ever seen. Our camera’s obviously began an instant love affair.
We were super stoked when they brought their two gorgeous pups out for a few shots. Seriously, these dogs couldn’t be cooler and they totally hammed it up for the cameras.
After the more casual portion of the session, they wanted to spice things up a bit…and SPICE they did. Taco Bell’s FIRE sauce ain’t got nothing on these two!
The original idea was to use only the white and blue balloons, but it was a bit windy that day so setting a world record in finishing a Rubik’s Cube would have been easier that untangling the strings so we just left it. What a beautiful mistake it turned out to be, we absolutely LOVED the playfulness the pop of red brought.
“ummm excuse me, I seemed to have lost my phone…would you mind helping me look for it?”“WHY YES…YES I CAN!” This must be the “Smooth Operator” look that John won Janica over with Or maybe it was this one…
For serious though, could these two be ANY CUTER? Despite the winter chill in the air, these two stuck in out in the name art and stayed a bit longer so we could get some night shots against the dark sky and tall grass…and we CANNOT thank them enough. Thanks to Sarah Rico for helping out and for bringing this SICK vintage television set too, we only wish we had more time to use it! Thank you Janica and John for bringing the SUPER FUN to your engagement session. We have such a great time trekking around the fields with chairs, balloons and even a television. We cannot wait to capture your incredible wedding at the South Coast Winery!
