Balboa Peninsula and Victoria Beach Engagement: Sophath + Lucy

            One of our favorite things about being a photographer is getting to visit places we wouldn’t necessarily get to go to otherwise. And now, we are going to Balboa Peninsula for the Sophath and Lucy’s engagement session. It was timely escape from the busy everyday life in the city.

            They were both a bit quiet when the shoot was starting out. If you take them separately, they’re a bit reserved, but when you put them together and they look at each other, the smiles just come bursting forth. But our engagement shoot to the Peninsula wouldn’t be complete without taking a picture and a ride to the Balboa’s famous Ferris wheel. True love can make any situation more comfortable. We love how Lucy lights up for him. We saw how happy they were it just felt like they were the only two people there.

            We continued our photo shoot at Victoria Beach which known for its medieval-looking tower rising from the sand. It is visible from the beach at low tide which is picture perfect scenery. Our session was like a one long silent conversation. They said so much to each other and about themselves, but without using words. Sophath is a quiet guy. He doesn’t say much at all. But he says so much in the way he looks at Lucy. It was amazing to watch. They wanted to photograph as they are. It was just the two of them, my team, our cameras, the birds and the waves. It’s that simple; It’s just who they are.

            Forehead kisses and sunset by the sea. There’s a certain melancholy that comes with shooting at the beach, spent with two people wondrously in love with each other. For Sopath and Lucy, it’s as if the universe conspired to bring them together. And yes, we may have just lifted that from a quote but hearing the couple’s story, it definitely rings true that line. This gallery is for sure is a faithful testament to that.

Congratulations on your engagement! We can’t wait for the wedding!

Orange County Engagement: Chris + Sabrina

We are so excited for the warm weather and the beautiful sunsets. This means more sessions on the beach and it also means more gorgeous photos! This is exactly what we got with Chris and Sabrina’s engagement photo shoot here at Victoria Beach - known for its white sandy beach and beautiful blue-green waters.  It is a perfect setting, and for them as a couple has an even greater significance.

 We started our session walking around in this beautiful sunny day with two really fun people. The couple was relaxed, which allows them to enjoy their day as it is unfolding, safe in the knowledge that their photos will reflect the joy and the love they have for each other. Chris and Sabrina were so much fun getting to know and having in front of our cameras. We enjoyed their down to earth attitudes and genuine spirits. They made us feel completely at ease and can clearly be seen in the stunning images that we produced throughout the day.

They really rocked their session. Every photos are beaming in love. They enjoy the shallow water of the beach, sandy feet and warm embraces. These two are adorable together – two people with unconditional love for each other. This engagement shoot is all about the story between two people full of love. The joy, the smiles, the love are captured in this beautiful shoot.

Thanks to Chris and Sabrina for helping us to create the magic together for this photo shoot. We had such an amazing time in our session.

They are tying the knot this coming August. It was such a pleasure to capture their love story and to capture their big day! And we are excited to share our work on this shoot. Enjoy!

 

Victoria Beach Engagement: Issa + Claire

Engagement shoots are so fun, and they’re a great opportunity to visit some of your favorite places as a couple, and capture gorgeous snaps while you’re there.  Not only they are lovely opportunity to spend time with your other half, but they are also great way to loosen up in front of your wedding photographer, have them learn how you naturally pose and get some casual but striking poses.

It was a beautiful day, the sky and the water is as blue as can they can be. You can listen carefully and you’ll hear waves lapping on the shore and feel the sand between your toes. Our amazing couple Issa and Claire took their engagement photo shoot her at the long white sandy Victoria Beach. Known for the Victorian La Tour Tower – the stair tower commonly referred to as a lighthouse structure.

Our couple was a bit self conscious when we started the engagement shoot, but their handsome photographer (LOL) instantly put them at ease and this is the breathtaking result. With super chic outfit changes, fun on the sun, kisses in the sea and snapshot into the laidback beach setting. They are like two puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together – complementing each other. Claire and Issa have the sweetest disposition and most kind hearts. We love the way they look at one another ad find comfort in each other’s arms.

We always start with a little warm up with all our couples and our couple nailed it? Thet and I love their facial expressions and personalities. They are absolutely perfect together.

Congratulations Issa and Claire! Wishing you all the best for your wedding plans, we are no doubt it will be one seriously stylish soiree!

Treat your eyes to this pretty engagement photos.
