Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park Newlywed Session | Coto De Caza, California // Vanessa + Anthony
When Vanessa and Anthony first started dating, Anthony asked where she would want to get proposed to, and she said, “the Eiffel Tower!” He joked that he would take her to Vegas, but – spoiler - he definitely had a future surprise waiting. Vanessa loves to travel and has been to nearly 25 countries - #goals! She and Anthony finally got to travel together in 2015 and they went to Brazil! She told him she really wanted to go to Italy and hoped to live there some day. Anthony sneakily suggested they should also go to France on their trip and they could visit Disneyland Paris – like me and husband, they’re both huge Disney fans too! And guess what, they had tickets to visit the Eiffel Tower…I think you can guess what happened next!
Vanessa and Anthony opted for a Newlywed Session instead of an Engagement Session, and it was such a great chance to have some magical sunset photos in their wedding attire! We also took the opportunity to take a few extra detail shots in a new place. I knew that Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park in Orange County, CA would be perfect photo spot for their vision. We also wanted to find a spot where the sunset would come in beautiful since we didn’t a chance to do sunset photos on their wedding day. Needless to say, it did not disappoint!
P.S. Vanessa is also an amazing Makeup Artists! She did her own makeup on her wedding day too - check out her bold, beautiful, and natural looks at Vanessa Fiorella!
