HI, I'm Christa

Corona Del Mar Engagement Session | Orange County Wedding Photographer

Nov 10, 2017

Chris sat in his car after saying goodbye to Sophia the high school Halloween dance. But he couldn’t drive home. He just knew if he went back and kissed her that she would be his girlfriend. He was right and then eight years, he asked her to be his wife.

I was already mildly obsessed with Sophia and Chris before our session (thanks to some good ol’ Instagram stalking) and now, I feel like we are old friends. Their love for one another and joy for life was so transparent as we climbed over boulders, ran through the sand, and shared stories.

Congrats Chris + Sophia! It was such a joy to document your love!
