Rolling Hills & Tall Grass Engagement Session | Riverside, CA

Tham & Mike’s love story started long before either of them knew it. They went to high school together and were friends, but after graduating high school and going off to college lost contact with each other. 

Years later, they ran into each other at a mutual friend’s wedding and hit it off. They began dating. After a few years of dating, they bought their first home together.

On move-in day, Mike told Tham he had Tham’s set of house keys. As he reached into his pocket to present the keys, he pulled out an engagement ring and got down on one knee on the stairs of their new home and proposed. Tham was completely taken by surprise and thrilled- of course she said yes! 

Tham contacted me a few months ago to schedule their engagement session and said she’d love somewhere hilly with tall grass.

I went out scouting and drove to a few different locations, but wasn’t finding the right setting. Just before going home and deciding to pick back up scouting the following day, I stopped by a park I hadn’t yet been to. I walked through the park and stumbled upon an entrance to part of a hiking trail. There were rolling hills, a massive rock formation and tall yellow grass that resembled wheat. I knew this would be a great spot for their session. 

I photographed their engagement session on an overcast, chilly day, but luckily managed to finish their shoot just before it rained. We ran up hills, climbed rocks and had an awesome time during their session. 

Tham & Mike-congratulations on your engagement! I had so much fun hanging out with you two!

Downtown Riverside Engagement Session | Riverside, CA

LaTisha and Robert first met at a gas station when LaTisha was checking the air pressure in her tires and Robert approached her to see if she needed help. They struck up a conversation, exchanged phone numbers, and instantly became friends. After a few months, they went on their first date and their friendship developed into a relationship. Fast forward about 5 years and they now engaged and planning their wedding.

They recently moved near the Riverside area and decided that downtown Riverside would be the perfect location for their engagement session because it has a lot of Spanish Mission architecture, much similar in style to the venue they’ll be getting married at next year.

When planning their engagement session, LaTisha asked if there was any way we could incorporate a gas station as one of their photo locations. Of course I said yes- I loved the sentiment of it and felt it would be a great way to tell their love story through photography!

Congratulations LaTisha and Robert! I had such a blast hanging out with you two!
