juliana + james / uc davis arboretum engagement

Meet Juliana + James: one of the giddiest, most happy-to-be-around-each-other couples I've photographed. James currently goes to school in Kentucky while Juliana finishes her last semester here in California, so when we booked their wedding we hadn't planned on including an engagement session. But a last minute trip brought James home, so in spite of the rainy forecast, we scheduled a session the UC Davis Arboretum (Juliana's home campus and one of my favorite local spots to shoot). The evening of their session came and with it, a golden sunset, a patch of blooming daffodils, and no rain in sight. It was a good one.
