I absolutely love historic buildings, so when Kaitlin and Christian told me they wanted to do their engagement session at The Mission Inn, I was ecstatic! And not only for that reason, but also because I got married there eight years ago, and I felt such a sense of nostalgia going back and watching love unfold in the very place I exchanged vows with my husband.
This gem of a place is located in Riverside but makes you feel like you’re in a quaint little town in Europe. Kaitlin and Christian rocked their shoot. Oftentimes I find that guys feel awkward and need a lot of direction, but Christian was the exact opposite! He was practically a professional model with how natural he was. His and Kaitlin’s energy and vibrancy paired perfectly together and complemented the location so well. I’m so glad I was invited along to document their engagement at a place I hold dear to my heart and one that they’ll now hold dear to theirs. Their love is tangible and I’m so excited to see what the future holds for these two love birds.
