Amanda + Brice { Newport Engagement Session }

I’ve known Amanda for years. She was there for me when I first started this crazy photography journey was one of the few people in the beginning that didn’t blink an eye when I styled her with crazy peacock feathers and stuck her in giant piles of sticks for my weekly practice photoshoots.

Secretly, for the last few years I was wishing that her guy would propose just so I could shoot her wedding. She’s the sweetest person and cares so deeply for her friends and family.  A few months ago my wish came true. I never met Brice before the engagement session, but from everything I’ve heard from our group of friends…I knew they were perfect together.

A few weeks ago we made our way down to Newport and Amanda + Brice showed me this amazing hiking path/swamp that made my heart go all pitter patter. I felt like I was transported outside of Southern California…complete with open fields and twisting fallen trees. After running around like a kid on a sugar high, we spent the last bit of sunset near the beach that Brice proposed.

I’m crazy excited for their wedding next July at Padua Hills Theater in Claremont. Plus my sister is going to be a bridesmaid, so I automatically have a slave helper on my team. 😉
