Shinzen Japanese Gardens

Aidee & Rodrigo have been friends since middle school! It wasn’t until they were about to graduate high school that Rodrigo asked her out on a date. One date turned into two, then three and four and these two realized they were meant to be together!

They love frequenting Japanese restaurants so it was fitting to shoot their engagement session at the Shinzen Japanese Gardens in Fresno, California.

When I asked Aidee to tell me more about their relationship, she said, “We truly feel like we are each other’s soul mates and what we feel has made our relationship special is the fact the we have seen each other grown and step into the next phase of our lives, all while being there encouraging the other person”

As they approach their wedding day, they’re looking forward to many more milestones together. First the “I Do’s”, then buying their first home and starting their family.
