roxanne & nick | newport beach engagement

we had so much fun photographing this engagement session and getting to know our very sweet couple, roxanne and nick! when we first met, it was like hanging out with old friends. they love the beach and even live near one, so naturally our session started on the cool sands of the pacific ocean. nothing compares to the radiant sunsets and gleaming waves of southern california. it was delightful to photograph r & n's memories of their engagement at this beautiful location in corona del mar. 


As I promised in my last post, photos of this pretty portrait session are now here! It was such a wacky day of weather with the sun fading in and out of the clouds. We could also see an impending storm drifting toward us in the distance. Even though I'm now spoiled by always perfect SoCal weather, I'll never forget growing up in the land of four seasons (north carolina) where hurricanes never stopped anyone from driving to the grocery store, or going out to walk their dog. So, when the rain was fast approaching and possibly about to ruin our photo session, I did not panic. I simply made sure we maximized our time while the weather was still great, albeit overcast and temperamental. In fact, our photos turned out rather beautifully thanks to a beautiful couple and an amazing sky. We were so blessed that the rain came much later! It was a perfect day photographing the rare cherry blossoms in the San Fernando Valley.
