We had such a blast shooting Krisie and Chris last weekend at Balboa Island. If you haven’t been to Balboa Island, you must go. It is such a fun community of shops, cute restaurants and quaint boutiques. If you have a sweet tooth you must get a Balboa Bar. Its vanilla ice cream on a popsicle stick dipped in chocolate and then covered in sprinkles, oreos, heath or whatever you want. I wouldn’t let Sean leave without buying me one! TO DIE FOR! Sean and I enjoyed the day walking around in the sunshine and eating lunch on a boat dock.
Later in the afternoon we met up with Krisie and Chris to do their engagement photos. They were a bit timid at first but it didn’t take them long to loosen up and truly enjoy the day. Krisis and Chris have been dating for nine years. They both attended college at U of A and when Chris moved in next to Krisie and all her friends, they began to hang out a lot with one another. Chris knew that he was falling fast for Krisie when he couldn’t imagine doing anything without her and constantly wanted to be with her.
They continued to date and Krisie patiently waited for Chris to propose. He surprised her on her birthday with an adorable date that included a bike ride on their new beach cruisers along the Santa Monica bluffs concluding with a picnic. He set out their food and things and then began telling her how much he loved her and asked her to be his wife!
Their love for each other is apparent in every picture. We love how when Chris looks Krisie, her whole face lights up. We are so excited to shoot their wedding in May at the La Quinta in Palm Desert.
After the shoot we enjoyed getting to know them more over a drink at a local bar. It was so fun to just sit down and talk to them about them and learn more about who they are. Thank you again for letting us be a part of your exciting day. We hope you enjoy a preview of your engagement photos.
