Outdoors Orange County Engagement Session

"For our engagement shoot, we both knew we wanted something that would feel like a fairy tale. It was really important that our photographer captured who we truly are to each other. After researching online for wedding photographers, we were referred to Kristen Booth, and indeed she is a fairy tale photographer! Seeing her portfolio sealed the deal. Not only was she such a doll to work with, she made us feel extremely comfortable, and was so open to anything we wanted to do. All I did was tell her what we were looking for in terms of the look and feel, and she made it happen." - the couple

The ProposalAfter planning a beautiful birthday trip to San Francisco then to Napa, Thad drove us home along the California coastline where we made little pit stops along the way. As he turned the curve nearing Monterey Bay, he pulled over to a scenic view overlooking the ocean with the beautiful cliffs in the background, and told me that we should get out and take some photos. As I went to grab my camera, I then walked over to the edge of the cliff and started to take a few snapshots. Little did I know, Thad was still behind me shuffling through the trunk.... It was then that he came up behind me, and got down on his knees and proposed. It was a very surreal moment, and one that I will never forget. Lucky for us, there were some tourists who stopped by at the same moment, and was able to take a photo of us both during our first moments of being engaged.
