a couple of weeks ago, carlie & i met kristi & matt for an engagement shoot along the ortega highway, between ladera ranch and san juan capistrano. we joked about matt's original idea, to shoot their engagement at as many fast food restaurants as we could squeeze into an hour and a half. and instead we opted for a bit more of a natural feel, which i think pleased kristi a bit more than thought of an urban landscape.

less 'happy meal'
more 'mother nature'

from our short time meeting kristi & matt, and then from their engagement shoot, it is safe to say that carlie and i have been blessed, yet again, by an amazingly genuine couple. there really is something all natural about kristi & matt. i can already imagine what their friends and family will say about them on their wedding day in september. and i look forward to hearing a bit more of their story.

kristi & matt, thank you. and, we will see you soon...

carlie thought it might be fun to use a little bit of direct sunlight... though we tried not to blind kristi.
sneaking a few moments away in the orchards.
we let kristi & matt hang out a bit on their own. it's pretty awesome when two people, completely genuine in character, are so uninhibitedly in love.

i can't wait to shoot their first dance at the biltmore in a few weeks.

the following two are a couple of my favorites.
