Kelsey + Wyatt Engagements / Newport Beach, CA
Ah Kelsey and Wyatt — two of the kindest people. I had actually met Kelsey back in college when we both worked at an ice cream shop. Her close friend Jess also worked there and so I was so excited when I received an email from Jess saying she wanted to gift Kelsey an engagement session since they weren’t planning on having one. I immediately was so, so happy to do it.
Whenever I take photos down in Orange County the majority end up taking place on the beach so I was pleased to hear Kelsey and Wyatt were looking for something a bit different. The beach is always so fun to photograph at but it’s always nice to switch it up every once in a while. We decided on the Environmental Nature Center in Newport Beach as it was filled with plenty of greenery. We went early in the morning so we had the place to ourselves and that warm, golden light.
It was such a pleasure to see Kelsey again and be able to photograph this amazing moment in her life. I have the absolute best memories from college, especially working at that ice cream shop so it’s always fun to reminisce with the people who made it so fun.
