I love coming up with locations for engagement sessions. It usually involves a series of emails back and forth with the couple. I ask, “What do you like to do together? Where do you like to go?” Well for Paige & Don, the answer was The OC Mix Mart. If you’ve never been there, and you’re in the Orange County area, go. It’s a fun shopping center full of interesting shops and restaurants, but full of really cool design elements. Paige & Don love to go there to enjoy a glass of wine and each other.
I have to mention… I have known Paige since college! We lived on the same hall in the dorms and then sang in choir together for several years. We’ve seen each other a couple of times since we graduated, and on facebook, of course. 🙂 But what a joy it has been to reconnect with her and what an honor to get to photograph her wedding!!!!
Paige mentioned that Don’s dad has an amazing ’56 Chevy, and did I think that might be fun to use for a few photos? Um…. yeah! I always, ALWAYS say yes to using a classic car for photos!
