Cándida and Jeff: the Engagement

I met Cándida in high school through youth group. A couple years later a group of us that included Cándida and her brother, Roberto, and I went to London to put together a summer "holiday club" for the local kids and had such a blast! We definitely created a bond with each other as well as all the kids and families we met there. Fast forward to 2009, Cándida and I were bridesmaids in the wedding of Roberto and my best friend, Courtney. 

I was able to see all of Cándida's family last summer, and the two of us spent some time in her kitchen, just catching up on life and that's when I heard about Jeff. I could tell just by the way she spoke of him, that this guy was pretty special. Needless to say, I was stoked that she asked me to shoot her wedding!

Here are some of the fun photos from their engagement session that started at the Bachelor Mansion.... whaaaaaaat?!
