Chris and Michelle {Engagement}

FILED IN: Engagements

Hey everybody, I am back! I didn’t post a “real” blog last week because David and I were busy moving, yet again! Don’t worry this one is going to be permanent, at least for awhile! Now for today’s post…I have Chris and Michelle’s engagement session to share with you. A few weeks ago, David and I made a trip out to California for some shoots/weddings, and Chris and Michelle were our first! Immediately after landing at John Wayne Airport in Orange County we headed up to Palos Verdes for the shoot. We had never met this couple before, Chris and I had just corresponded via email, but it was easy and fun right away! We started at The Terranea Resort for some dressier shots, and then headed down to “The Cove” (a well known surf spot in Palos Verdes) for some casual pics. Chris and Michelle, this was such a fun shoot–David and I had such a good time getting to know you guys. We hope you love the photos, enjoy!

I asked Michelle to show me her FIERCE face here, and instead it made her laugh. I’ll take the laugh any day.
The photo on the right was the first photo I snapped that day, just as a test, so Chris and Michelle weren’t even trying to pose here…love the natural interaction.

The view of Palos Verdes from the resort is breathtaking.

“The Cove” is a special spot for Chris and Michelle.

Beautiful, warm, glowy light. Yes. Please.

This beach was different than the ones I usually shoot at, instead of sand it was all rocks. Very cool.

We stayed to enjoy the sunset.
