I had to say, I was a little nervous as I drove up PCH. Seeing the clouds come in, I knew the high Malibu brush would look dull and flat, and what if it started to rain? When I met up with Tiya and Brian, we nixed the meadows and found a pleasant break in the bushes that protected them from the wind. And as soon as we found a quiet spot, Tiya and Brian settled in and just made it so effortless. They couldn’t take their eyes off each other, these two are so meant to be. After 14 years of dating, not an ounce of romance seems to have been lost. As the sun set, the colors of nature matched Tiya and Brian’s outfits perfectly. It felt like the day was meant to be as well.
Molly Stinchfield and I had such a great time with Whitney and Mark’s engagement session! Whitney’s father is big on sailing and taught Whitney as she was growing up. The Roton Point Association, of which her father is a member, was the perfect location for Whitney and Mark’s engagement shoot.
We had the yacht club all to ourselves, and took full advantage of the hazy afternoon New England light, especially as it filtered onto the grand patio of the club house.
When Mark had proposed to Whitney, he had brought along green balloons. He had her pop them one by one, in anticipation of the big moment. As we got into the session, we could see that Mark was fun, silly, and full of surprises…and how much he absolutely adores Whitney.
Whitney and Mark, it was a pleasure for Molly and I to photograph the two of you. We loved incorporating the balloons into your story, shooting at a place that is meaningful to you, and working with all of your fun energy! Best of luck with the wedding!!!
