Leslie and Daniel knew the day they got engaged that they wanted something special for their photos. Lovers like these two come along as often as a blue moon, so we pulled out all the stops for them. Since they are incorporating a lot of their found vintage objects into their wedding, they decided to bring a few things along to the shoot (and our little yellow table.
We originally intended to rent a row boat over at corona lake, but after conversing briefly with the entry attendant, we weren’t that impressed (he also warned us quote “the 80 mile an hour winds will blow you over and you might be attacked by a mountain lion”). Needless to say he must not have wanted us there. No worries though, Leslie brought some beautiful items for a vintage picnic, we just needed an open spot.
After about 20 (kinda stressfulminutes of searching, we found the Lake Eslinore Military Academy. Built in the 1920′s and abandoned since the 70′s, the magnificent building hides behind two sets of barbed fencing, a massively over grown landscape, and its own faded and cracked facade. We knew we had to get in, but thought sneaking in would be tough, so we (luckily) befriended the caretaker and spent the raddest hour of our career wandering around taking pictures.
