I am so so so excited for today’s post because it mashes together two of my favorite things: awesome people and awesome photography!
When my friend, Tina, posted a few of her engagement photos on Facebook, I ran straight to her photographer to get the images! Jo Ann Manolis is a photographer based out of Santa Cruz, Ca whose ability to capture sweet, romantic moments is rather astonishing. Here’s what she said about the shoot:
“I always strive to capture images that reflect the unique personalitiesof my subjects. This was incredibly easy with Tina and Ryan, who were so relaxed and comfortable just being together. We went for a casual outdoor session at one of my favorite local venues, complete with a gorgeous setting sun and a field of blooming wildflowers. Of course, the real shining stars were Tina and Ryan who simply radiated with happiness and contentment.”
Now, take a look at some of the shots!
Aren’t they gorgeous?! Check out more of her work at JoAnnManolisPhotography.com!
(And I have to give a big Congrats to Tina and her husband, Ryan, who just got married last weekend!)
What do you think of these photos? Would you (or did you) get an engagement session done? Any favorite spots that you’d love to have a photo shoot in? Tell me all about it in the comments, and have a happy weekend!
