We are beyond delighted that Jason + Kelly hired us to shoot their engagement photos as well as their upcoming wedding in March. Why, you ask??? Well because Jason has been one of Justin's super close friends ever since they went to Art Center College of Design together about 5 years back, AND Kelly and I use to cause a little trouble together when I was a young single adult living in Huntington beach about 8 years back! I had lost touch with Kelly after I moved away from the HB and found the man of my dreams then got married. So you could only imagine how excited I was when I found out that Jason found HIS girl of his dreams and it happened to be one of my old friends!
Jason + Kelly are perfect for each other! I remember a few years back (before Kelly was in the picture) I asked Jason to describe his perfect girl and this is what he said, "Well, she's GOT to be a brunette, also someone that is a little out-doorsy, but still super girlie!" That is EXACTLY what Kelly is! So glad they found each other!
We shot their engagement session at the beach right next to where Kelly lives, and I usually have a hard time with the beach, but I have to say that this one definitely surprised me!
When shooting at the beach, we usually ask our couples to bring along one "prop" to help spice things up, Kelly chose this amazing red Japanese umbrella...LOVED IT!
Out of focus, long shutter, running while shooting, super real...one of my favorite shots from the day.
Obviously, my favorite shot of the day!!!!
From day one we have completely enjoyed Jean + Austin's company. They really are such a sweet and stylish couple, they even brought a little presents for our boys at the first consultation! When planning their engagement session they gave us complete rights to the location and creativity, so we took to the opportunity and decided to schedule their sitting at a location that we had been eyeing for quite some time. It was a parking garage off of the 5 freeway in Tustin and it sits right up against a beautiful glass building. We didn't know exactly where to tell them go so we met up in a random parking lot nearby and found this amazing little cove of vines that jump started the shoot. To make the long story short, this stands as one of our favorite engagement sessions to date! Enjoy!
Second favorite shot of the day!
Earlier that day Austin had called to warn us that he would be surprising Jean with a ring he bought for her (not the engagement ring, but another ring from Christian Dior that spelled "oui"), I was jealous:). Here he is giving it to her!
The next two images are all in-camera with off camera flash...honest!
Hands down, definitely my favorite shot of the day!
Ps. I bet you'll never guess who is the mastermind behind Jean's hair and make-up...any guesses?! YUP, none other than Nicole DeAnne!
