Clare and I met over a decade ago. Crazy to think it’s been ten years! At the time we met, Clare was working with my boyfriend (now husband) and a bunch of us went to go listen to some live music. The moment I met Clare, I remember thinking to myself – “I really like this girl!”. We hit it off immediately and, to this day, I would describe her as the epitome of ‘good vibes’!
Irvine Engagement Photos
Clare has been there for me throughout many stages of my life, and I couldn’t be more excited that she’s found Frank! And frankly (pun intended) I’ve ever seen her happier! For their engagement session, I wanted to find an extra special location. I scouted out a few great local spots, but although spring isn’t over yet, most of our Southern Cali landscape is already very dry. My tried and true favorite spots were not going to cut it!
I came along this still-green Irvine spot running one night and couldn’t get it out of my mind. It’s hard to even describe. The land is basically an aqueduct between a housing development and the freeway. The ground is completely slanted so that added a unique challenge — and we may or may not have been trespassing — but that’s neither here nor there now :).
I’m so glad I 1) stumbled upon this lovely spot 2) approached Clare with my crazy vision and 3) she trusted me. I love every single photo so much — but love seeing my friend so happy even more. Congratulations Frank and Clare – I cannot wait to drink and dance my ass off at your wedding next year!!!
