San Gabriel Mission Engagement Photos | Paulina & Simon

San Gabriel Mission Engagement Session_0029.jpg

Paulina and Simon really wanted to have a traditional Spanish feel to their session and knew they wanted to shoot at a local SoCal Mission. We decided to shoot at the San Gabriel Mission in San Gabriel, CA. The traditional Spanish walls and gardens made for an amazingly beautiful location to shoot their engagement photo. The San Gabriel Mission Bells were stunning and we were all elated to be there.  

The San Gabriel Mission has a special connection to Paulina and her family. Her grandparents, parents, and several other family members attend the mission for Sunday Mass and were also married there! The mission has a long-standing family tradition so it only seemed perfect to be able to shoot here. 

The mission bells haven’t been photographed from within the mission since 1940! Unit now…

While most photographers only have access to being able to shoot *outside* of the San Gabriel mission we were given access to the gardens… and even the iconic San Gabriel Mission bells on the roof. The mission bells haven’t been photographed from within the mission since 1940! To say that it was truly an honor to be given such access was a dream! Not to mention I was completely freaking out (in a good way!).

Paulina & Simon, you guys are truly a special couple. Watching you spend time together what so sweet and special to me to be part of. Thank you SO much for choosing me to capture such a beautiful time in your lives!

XO, 

Nataly
