Amber went with her friend for karaoke night. Daniel went after work to unwind and play some darts. They ran into each other, had a few laughs and that was that. Except that Amber said, "Here's my number" before they parted ways.

That was almost 4 years ago, and Daniel and Amber are now looking forward to their October wedding. We had an enjoyable, albeit windy,  engagement session in downtown Riverside on Saturday night. I'm so excited to get to be a part of their big day this fall! A sneak peek from our session::

You did a beautiful job of capturing the love between them. They are radiant in the first images and I love the intimacy of the shot where he is pulling the hair away from her face.

You are going to ROCK their wedding!

Wow, Rachel, beautiful engagement session. These two look like they have so much fun together, they're so cute! Just looking at these brought a huge smile to my face. And, an October wedding, sigh...... They couldn't have picked a more beautiful time of year to get married. They'll have all the beautiful colors to compliment their day, along with that crispness that can be in the air that time of year. Have fun!

Carol says:

Beautiful! I love the movement the wind created in these. They are all beautiful, but the second and third photographs are my favorite. The way they are looking at eachother and the tender way the groom to be is sweeping his fiance's hair off her face...just lovely!
