I'm Elissa Pace, a destination wedding photographer based out of Dallas, TX. There are a few things that make me happy: the ocean, serving Jesus & warm days. This is my little space on the web where I love to share my work and things I personally love. Thank you for tagging along!
California is one of those states that I never grow tired of visiting. The weather, the beach, the palm trees – so many things to love about California! So when Aubrey & Garrison invited me out for their Downtown Riverside/Oakmont Park engagement session, I was over the moon!
Aubrey and Garrison are just that adorable couple that you can’t help but love! They are such a sweet, easy going couple which was so relaxing for me because if you know me, you know I’m definitely the same! Getting to know them better during their engagement session is one of the many reasons why I always encourage my couples to book their engagement session with me! We connected so easily and were able to reach that comfortable level with each other so seamlessly. They also got to learn more about me, how I direct posing and the way I work. We had a ton of fun seeking the best light and locations and I seriously cannot wait to head back for their wedding!
We started off in Downtown Riverside near the gorgeous Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. Although busy, you’d never know it by the way these 2 make it feel like they’re the only ones there! We ended their session at Oakmont Park in Redlands and this Texas plains girl was in heaven! Rolling hills and mountains made the perfect backdrop for their second outfit. It was a beautiful contrast to the busy Mission Inn area and they absolutely killed it!
Stay tuned as I head back to California for their amazing August wedding! For now, enjoy the sweetest
Downtown Riverside/Oakmont Park engagement session you ever did see!
