Good Evening Everyone! I just got back into my office in Huntington Beach from spending a fantastic sunset with Kristin & Michael in Newport Beach down by the Balboa Island.
Kirstin and I were introduced to each other by her mother and Katherine as they both know each other through teaching. I knew after our initial meeting that working with her and Michael would be a blast and I was so right. We totally laughed, told jokes, and played around for their shoot. I felt like I was spending the afternoon with good friends – which just makes my day.
For their Engagement Shoot, we were thinking of different locations and Kirstin told me that she & Michael have a special connection to the Newport Beach / Balboa Bay area. With the boats in the background, the beautiful beach and the incredible sunsets that we’re able to work with – I was able to capture some artistic and romantic portraits of them that aren’t the standard in-the-box shots we’ve been accustomed to seeing over the years. We even had Elvis on a tour boat for part of the shoot serenading us!
Here are a few of my favourites from their day and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did capturing them – cheers!
