Genna and Derek reside in Huntington Beach and live the beach lifestyle for sure. They often take their beach cruisers down to the pier for a fun bike ride, yummy food and of course to spend a day at the beach enjoying the sand and surf. There is always something happening at the Huntington Beach Pier it seems like, whether it's the art and crafts fair or the surfing competition that is held there every year, you are bound to find something fun to do! They will be getting married this Fall at The Waterfront Resort and we are so excited to be their photographers! Hurry up Fall! Until then, Enjoy some of our favorites from their recent engagement session. It was a blast to photograph, hope you guys enjoy these photos as much as we did taking them! Happy Wednesday!
Where we live in Orange County, we don't get much snow on the ground, however in the winter, we don't have to travel far to find it. So when Blythe and Nick contacted us to do their engagements in Big Bear Lake after the mountain town received some fresh powder, we were super excited! Big Bear can get lots of snow in a short amount of time and lose it just as fast. We were probably about 2 days late for the peak snow fall, but we still got some great shots and had a blast!
Open fields of wild flowers surrounded by an old wooden fence and a rust covered shed is not what you would expect in the urban sprawl of Orange County, California, but that’s exactly what we found for Chas and Kaitlyn’s engagement session. Leslie and I have been here in Southern California for over 2 years now and we sometimes miss the rural settings that we photographed on a weekly basis. Don’t get me wrong, we absolutely love Southern California and the beaches of Orange County, but it’s nice to know that there’s a place here that makes us feel like we’re back in the country. We met Chas and Kaitlyn in San Juan Capistrano just off the 5. The day was overcast which gave us nice soft light to shoot in. Chas and Kaitlyn's wedding was in Laguna Hills at Crossline Community Church. They both currently live in San Francisco, but Chas grew up in Orange County so they decided to have their wedding here. We can’t wait to show you their wedding photos. Here are a few of our favorites from their engagement session. Enjoy!
