We arrived to shoot Wendy + Sunup's engagement photos and the first thing I noticed were the huge bouquet of sunflowers Wendy was holding in her hands. I was super excited that they had thought to bring a fun colorful prop to add to our shoot! My favorite thing about this set of images (besides Wendy + Sunup of course!) is the color. I've always told my clients that I love working with color and prefer this over tans, blacks, or most of all browns (fact: I don't own a single brown item in my wardrobe). We shot this engagement session in Costa Mesa and had a blast! We're definitely looking forward to the wedding coming up soon in October!
My favorite shot of the day!

Awesome photos, but seriously, no brown? It's such a wonderful earthy springboard for colors to fly from.

I probably don't need to say this because you've already got 20 other people telling you...but I will anyways. These shots are RAD!! I like how you mixed it up with natural light and flash photography.
