The first time I met Justine and Steve was on the day of their engagement session. This has happened a couple of times before, but I was nervous this time. Not only did Justine and Steve book me over the phone without having met me, but they also chose their wedding date based on MY availability. I usually have to wine and dine a couple first before that happens, so I was particularly honored! So I was a little worried that once they met me they wouldn’t like me and then they’d regret their decision of catering to my schedule. What if we didn’t click!?
Well, I can’t speak for Justine and Steve, but I loved them immediately. Seriously. Warm, friendly, in love and beautiful together. As a photographer, I could ask for nothing more. These new friends of mine are amazing and I’m beyond excited to shoot their 1940s style wedding in May. In keeping with the theme, we decided to shoot their engagement session at the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Here are just a few of my favorites.
