Brittany and Eric’s Engagement Portraits, Costa Mesa, California
In December, one of my best friends—since second grade—got engaged! Brittany has been known as my laughing buddy because when we get together that’s all that happens! She just makes me laugh and her laugh is infectious in the best of ways. Her bubbly personality brings everyone in as if you’ve been friends forever. And that’s how she makes you feel, even strangers. And she sure knows how to have a good time! That’s a guarantee when spending time with my P*A (stands for pineapple, don’t ask).
Four years ago she met Eric. Eric in so many ways is Brittany’s perfect guy. After so many years of Brittany making all of us smile, now he makes Brittany laugh and smile—all the time. So if you know Brittany, and thought she was so happy before, wait until you see Mrs. Totah-to-be. You can’t help but smile—the whole time! Your cheeks will hurt! In a good way! ha! I am so so so excited for their wedding this November! I am so excited for all the dancing during the reception, but most excited to be stand up with Brittany as one of her bridesmaids as she becomes Eric’s wife! Ah!!
This is too much blabbing… on to the pictures! Within walking distance from Brittany’s apartment are two shopping and dining areas called The Camp and The Lab. They are the coolest centers I have ever seen. They have not left any space without any decoration. I coined the term modern industrial—at least I thought I did, is that a real thing? Anyway, I stopped by there on my way to Brittany’s and my mind was overflowing with ideas! I had such a blast wandering around and capturing their relationship… without further ado, the future Mr. and Mrs. Totah!
As I was testing the light for the following photo, these three men walked by us. I was not paying attention to them but after they were gone Eric said that the guy on the far right was Kurt Russel! What a surprise!
The Camp has succulents EVERYWHERE! I just adore them and had to take a ring shot in one of them!
These next two are my absolute favorites!!
Then we drove down to Newport Beach to savor the sunset.
Wishing you all the best this year! Ahh! So excited!! And Happy Valentine’s Day you two!
P.S. When we were talking about the shoot, Brittany asked for one photo of Eric with blue eyes so he’ll look Italian and her with green, just because she’s always wanted green eyes. So here’s a bonus photo for you!
