Marissa + Anthony Engaged

 

Humphrey's Estate in Temecula is one of my favorite places to shoot.  There is so much beauty and verity packed into one little area.  Anthony and Marissa met me there for a sunset session. I start most my engagement sessions asking the couple to simply do what they do when they greet each other at home after a long day of being apart.  I knew immediately, when he pulled her in for a sweet embrace and she melted into him, that I was going to love our time together!  They are too adorable, and I am so excited for their Rock Creek Garden wedding next spring!!

When Marissa walked into the bank where Anthony was working to open an account, he had no idea she was walking into his heart.  She noticed Anthony immediately, and he noticed her.  In fact, he rushed the client in front of her so Marissa would come to his line.  After that first interaction at the bank, they didn't see each for a couple of months.  Marissa was in high school and didn't have a job or any real reason to go to the bank.  All of that changed one day when Marissa final made some cash dog-sitting and needed to go to the bank.  Anthony was her teller again, and this time they bonded over a mutual love of Australia. He asked for her number, and they had their first date. Everything went so well they spent the entire summer together.  Anthony got a job offer to go to Australia. He took it, but not before asking Marisa to be his girlfriend.  They did the long distance relationship for 2 months until he moved back. One night, the two love birds went to the top of Deluz to unwind, and he asked her to be his wife. She said YES!!
