This couple has my heart! Jen is my sweet friend and sister (DG forever!) from my UC Riverside days, and I couldn't have been more excited when she let me know that not only was she engaged but that she wanted me to be her wedding photographer. And I did not hesitate when I shouted yes! (you would have thought she was proposing to me). And these two did not disappoint. They did so well, fell so instinctively together, I barely had to pose or direct them. And they were so ready and willing to trek through the park with me, no complaints even with the heat.
Jen and Derek met through a commonly used dating app, and from the beginning it felt natural. So natural, that a stranger who saw them on their first date, felt they were so comfortable he could jump into their conversation. And from there, things just got better and better. And I can attest, that Derek, you are by far the best fit for Jen. I can't wait for this next phase in your lives together and I am so thrilled to be the person to document and tell your story.
Here's to your new life together and year of health and happiness!
