Nicole + Mike = Engaged!

Nicole and Mike are so much fun! I met them both for the first time on the day of their engagement session (they had booked me over email), and I was so pleased to find that they were not only warm and friendly, but always laughing, which made our time together a lot of fun. I love my job a whole bunch already, but when I get to spend time with awesome couples who never stop laughing, I love my job even more.

Nicole wanted vibrant colors for their session and I immediately recommended The Lab, which is a shopping center in Costa Mesa. It’s pretty much a hipster mecca, but we didn’t let that deter us! It did not disappoint when it came to color and texture and I was very pleased. These two are getting married on a boat in just a couple of weeks! So excited to set off to sea with them and laugh until my sides hurt!
