Newport Beach Engagement Photography - Michelle and Justin

have you ever met new friends that were too fun? or too cute? or just too plain rad? and all you wanted to do was play???

michelle and justin make me want to play.

first off, michelle and justin have cool personalities [and tattoos to match]. second, they are getting married at a haunted mansion this fall. third, michelle happens to be an incredible & aspiring photographer [you should check out her flickr stream]. and did i mention how cool michelle and justin are?

after meeting for the first time at megan & dom's san clemente wedding, just recently, i got even more excited for the big day coming up next month.

consider this simply foreshadowing for the awesome that will be brought when michelle & justin tie the knot...
meet justin.
and meet michelle.
they're fun... but a little shy.



michelle likes to go fast.








and who doesn't like a classic jump shot.
this was actually the very first photo we took during their engagement shoot, and it sorta reminds me of peter pan chasing his shadow. michelle and justin are a perfect match; like you & your shadow.

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
