Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Wall of Crosses, Villa, RosaritoRemember the post I shared last week about my brother’s wedding? Well, the villa we stayed at had this wonderful wall of Crosses that I loved and grabbed this shot. I meant to include it in my post, but forgot to. Lucky for me, this weeks Daily Post weekly photo challenge: Angular made me think of it 🙂

I had the amazing privilege to photograph this gorgeous couple for their engagement session, not once, but twice! We actually broke their session into two sessions – you might remember this post from last week of our sunset beach session? For our first session, we actually headed to a Mercado to get some local flavor and colors in Baja California.

And did I mention the best part? Those cutie pie-love birds are my family! My handsome and smart brother Rey and his adorable and creative fiancé Gina are getting married towards the end of the year, and we are so excited for the big event!

Gina and I have been pinning ideas and texting back and forth with inspiration for this session, and when she went exploring her new neighborhood, found these adorable areas for us to incorporate during our session. We did a morning session at the local Mercado and had a blast! There were so many amazing little spots we found during our outing, we could’ve went on photographing for days!! The colors, the textures, the vibe – we loved it all!

So this adorable couple is beyond special to me… that handsome dude? That’s my baby brother! And that beautiful girl? That’s his adorable fiancé who is my crafty-sister, from-another-mister! I don’t wanna get all mushy, but Oh-My-Goodness, I sure do love these two!

Our entire family was thrilled when they got engaged a few months ago and the couple and I have been discussing photos since then. We finally had the opportunity to get together for these shots last week. Gina had a great vision of what she wanted, so off we went to the beach in search of a donkey pony. We actually planned for a few more shots with a second setting, but a storm was rolling in quickly, we were freezing and decided to call it done! And the floral head wreath she’s wearing? She made it! Yup, we stopped at a little flower shop on our way home earlier in the day to get some props and she had the idea to make the head wreath. Isn’t it beautiful? Told you she’s crafty!

So we actually had two photo sessions, but you’ll have to wait until April 15th to see my post about the other session : ) Be sure to come back and see what fun we had during our morning Mercado session!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
