Capitol Park Engagement Photography | Kara & Renzo

smiling engaged couple at capitol park sacramentoCapitol Park in downtown Sacramento is a beautiful location for engagement photos with its broad range of scenery all within a city block.  Kara and Renzo live in Boston but will have their wedding on her parent’s property (with cute little vineyard!) in a town named Groveland this May.  I met with Kara and her parents a few months ago for our consultation and quickly grew to like her.  She’s kind and has a peaceful way about her that is hard to find these days.  I met Renzo for the first time during their engagement session.  These two compliment each other well – both are equally calm but can give each other a giggle in an instant.  I love the story of their first date.  Of all places, they went to Target to walk around and shop.  You can learn so much about a person by watching what they put into their shopping cart!

I have seen this photo dozens of times and I just cant get over how stunning her eyes are.  Piercing and deep.  Thoughtful.  This image deserves to be made into a huge canvas wrap and hung on a wall.  Hmmm… maybe for my studio!

I told Renzo to whisper something funny into Kara’s ear – I think he whispered “something funny” into her ear 😉

The bamboo at Capitol Park is amazing.  Sacramento has a vast array of places for perfect photography backdrops and this is one of them.

They brought their new puppy Chandler along with them and he deserved his own little photo session…
