Mission San Jose | Jessica + Joaquin

Engagement Photography

February 4, 2022

Jessica and Joaquin were such a sweet couple to work with and I felt so honored to have been able to capture their engagement session at Mission San Jose! They have been together for eight-plus years after meeting in high school and officially started dating before their senior prom. They also both went to A&M together for 3 years! That is where their shared love for football brought them closer together. After years of dating, they went on a trip to California and he popped the question by the Hear River in Yosemite.

They’re getting married in the Spring of 2022 and I cannot wait for it! I love when couples I capture weddings for also opt to do an engagement session with me as well. It is such an amazing way to help them get comfortable in front of the camera and for me to get to know them even better. It’s also just super sweet to feel bonded to them prior to the big day in this way.

Not to mention- you can use your engagement photos for *so* many things! Save the dates, invitations, your wedding website, etc!

Congratulations to Jessica + Joaquin~ I had so much fun photographing this beautiful engagement session at Mission San Jose!

Kind Words

“From the moment my husband and I met Monica we instantly fell I love with her vision, work and personality. I was always told to find a photographer you’re comfortable with because when your comfortable you can be your true self. For our engagement pictures it was a gloomy, foggy morning however by looking at our pictures you wouldn’t even know there was fog. They were spectacular!! My bridal pics has gusts of what it felt like 20 mph winds and my photos were stunning!!! For our wedding day Monica capture the most member moments of our life. She even hiked up hills to get the perfect shot. I will forever be a life time customer and 100% recommend her to my friends, family and anyone who asks me for my recommendation!”
