Courtney + James : Old Town Temecula
Courtney Campora and James Carter love their dogs. We love dogs too! So, when they gingerly asked about including their dogs in their engagement portrait session, we quickly said, “No problem!” We set up a split engagement portrait session for them on March 27th. The first half was in the morning at Glen Arbor Park in Murrieta. We’ve photographed there many times before and love the variety of areas to photograph portraits here — especially when dogs are involved.
The second half of their engagement portrait session was in Old Town Temecula. Courtney and James were so much fun to photograph. For a couple that started out the day at the dog park saying, “We’ve never taken professional photos together like this before and are not sure what to do!”, they certainly turned into a very photogenic couple.
They were clearly in love and enjoying their time together in front of the cameras — not only my still camera, but the second camera for the engagement session video that my son Josh shot and edited. Highlights from the day, including their final engagement video are below.
“Our favorite engagement photo is the one where our dogs, Nikki and Jake, are running towards you, and James and I are kissing in the backgroundWe just love this photo! It is so cute!!! James and I love our dogs, and just the fact that you were able to get any pictures of us with our dogs is amazing, especially with them running all over the place and not following directions, ha ha! I also love how you captured our dogs’ personalities – Nikki (the boxer) is so serious, it looks like she’s pointing at something far off in the distance; Jake (the bulldog) is happy go lucky, he’s looking right at the camera and smiling…so funny!!!” – Courtney
We love, love, love our photos, and the video is amazing!!!! Thank you so much!!! – Courtney Campora
