Last week, I took Yvonne and Cory’s engagement photos at San Elijo Lagoon in Encinitas, and we had the best time exploring all of its trails. These two cracked jokes and smiles the entire session and both were up for anything I suggested. Plus, any engagement session that includes a red-toned dress and a sophisticated Hugo Boss suit is a winner in my book.
Yvonne and Cory met in a very unexpected, yet meant-to-be sort of way. One day at work, Yvonne received a potential client inquiry from Cory, who invited her to his office for an in-person meeting. Even though Yvonne felt he was very attractive, she didn’t like mixing her personal life with work. Yvonne made her work sale, but Cory still had to work on his date sale and used his status as a new San Diegan to entice Yvonne into showing him a cool local restaurant. What was supposed to be a casual meet-for-a-drink date became a three hour dinner with the most amazing conversation and the feeling that they had perhaps known each other in another life. Ever since, Yvonne and Cory have enjoyed building a life with each other and are so grateful for the love and respect they share for each other.
Yvonne absolutely adores Cory’s sense of humor, which was so apparent with how often he had her smiling during their session. She also loves his passion for life and how much of an amazing listener he is. That’s certainly a dream set of qualities in a man, am I right? What does Cory admire about Yvonne? That would be her sense of adventure and spontaneity, as well as her devotion to see the inner beauty in all people, no matter how great their misgivings. Hand me the tissues because that’s one of the sweetest and most insightful things I’ve ever heard one of my grooms say about his bride. Cory and Yvonne, I am so excited for your wedding in October. I absolutely cannot wait to see you two again then!
