elesha + ron | pt 1 | vintage engagement photos

Happy Monday everyone! We are a little bummed that the Steelers lost the Super Bowl but we’re happy to start the week with part one of a fantastic San Diego engagement session. Elesha and Ron will be getting married later this year at one of our favorite Temecula vineyard wedding venues, Ponte Winery. We love their sense of style and the fact that they really put a lot of thought and work into their session with us. You’re not going to want to miss this post! We asked Elesha and Ron for some of their insights into their wedding planning and into their preparations for their engagement session. These two high school sweethearts are adorable … enjoy!

{us} How did you meet?

{Elesha+Ron} We have known each other since High School starting off as a High School crush…very innocent puppy love. It wasn’t until seven years ago that we reconnected and what started off as a date became something so much more.

{us} When did you get engaged?

{Elesha+Ron} We got engaged at Elesha’s graduation party on July, 10, 2010. It was a surprise engagement with our closest family and friends to witness the proposal.

{us} Which of your two is the wedding planner?

{Elesha+Ron} Elesha by far : )

{us} Are you enjoying the planning?

{Elesha+Ron} I am embracing every moment of the wedding planning process. I am one to be pretty organized so there hasn’t been any stress thus far…knock on wood. Ron’s there for moral support. LOL!

{us} When searching for your photographer, what made you choose us?

{Elesha+Ron} The style was the #1 reason. We were looking for a style that was fresh, something different from your typical enagement/wedding photos. We know that Betwixt can deliver that style that eminates our personality best.

{us} Were you nervous before your engagement session?

{Elesha+Ron} A bit. We were more excited than anything. Having the 1938 Buick was so exciting and just adds character to the vintage style we were going for.

{us} What did you do to plan for your session with us?

{Elesah+Ron} We coordinated our outfits, brought accessories (i.e. hats), props (i.e. balloons & 1938 Buick), had makeup and hair done, and worked with Betwixt on locations that went with the style we were looking for (i.e. North Park).

{us} What fun things did you incorporate in your session?

{Elesah+Ron} I think the main thing were the props. Props were big for our engagement session because it definitely portrayed the vintage style we were going for. We also wanted an urban feel to it and wanted to highlight colors in our picture, thus the balloons and colorful outfits.

{us} How would you describe the style of your session?

{Elesah+Ron} Vintage.

{us} Any advice for other brides and grooms?

{Elesah+Ron} Know what style you’re going for so you can best incorporate that in your pictures through your outfits, props, location, etc. Be bold and have fun.Urban San Diego engagement photos by Betwixt Studio.Urban San Diego engagement photos by Betwixt Studio.Urban San Diego engagement photos by Betwixt Studio.Urban San Diego engagement photos by Betwixt Studio.Urban San Diego engagement photos by Betwixt Studio.Urban San Diego engagement photos by Betwixt Studio.

{us} Tell us about your wedding!

{Elesha+Ron} Our modern vintage wedding is going to be at a vineyard giving it a romantic & fun feel. We will have about 150 of our closest family and friends to help celebrate our special day. We want our guests to remember our wedding as being unique and most of all FUN! We just want to have a great time!

We have a sense of assurance with working with them. They see our vision for what we are looking for in our engagement/wedding pictures in capturing the moment. They are passionate about their work and it is clear that they are more than experienced in their field of work. We couldn’t be happier and we are looking forward to working with them on THE BIG DAY!

{us} Thanks guys!!! We are so excited and honored to be working with you and are looking forward to your wedding!!! And stay tuned for Part 2 of this San Diego engagement session!! xoxo
