As time would have it, Elaina and Brandon began dating right before he moved to New Zealand. What I've learned about Brandon is that when he believes in something he goes after it. For the next almost year while he was away he pursued and fought for Elaina via emails, phone calls, and skype. What happened over this time is that they were able to build a relationship of trust and communication. They learned to talk through life, the ups and downs, the ins and outs, the lefts and rights.
Because of this when Brandon returned home last winter their lives were already in sync. What is special about Brandon is that he dreams big. He does not let what other people think define or stop his dreams. And Elaina, she's one of the most generous people I have met. She wants to know your heart, how your wired, and will be such a champion for your dreams. Together they are a powerhouse, and are a couple that I know will do big things for this world.
These are some of my favorite shots from their San Juan Capistrano Engagement session...
