Christy & Vinay's New Brighton Beach Engagement Shoot
It is with much joy and excitement that I write this post today! Of course I'm happy for all my couples who are about to getting married, but Christy is especially dear to my heart! After having spent a year and a half in Bible study together, you get to know a person really well. It's been such a pleasure to get to know her and really watch her grow in so many ways. I was so happy to hear that she got engaged and was even happier when I finally got to meet Vinay and photograph them together! It's no secret, these two make each other very happy. There was laughter throughout the whole session and evident love every time they kissed.
I loved all the sentimental touches to the shoot as well. Christy wanted to do the session at New Brighton State Beach over in Capitola, since they have a fond memory of a date here where they stopped at the beach and then got lost for hours in the neighborhood nearby trying to find their car. It's not so bad when really all you want to do is spend time with the man you're crazy about anyway! Any excuse to spend that extra time together will do. They also brought some Starbucks cups, as a nod to their very first date. It really was a lovely evening and I was so happy I could capture these photos for them to remember this very special time in their lives!
