Karina & Omar // Newport Beach | CDM Engagement

I’ve known Karina since freshmen year of High School and I remember we met in English class and we continue our friendship over the years. After high school I would meet up with Karina and Marisol (Karina’s Maid of Honor) at Starbucks and we would catch up and talk how our lives were going. Years pass and slowly I lost contact with her but faith would have our paths cross again, and to my suprise it would also bring her engagement to Omar.I was happy  that Karina & Omar choose me as their photographer to capture their special day. I was honored Karina picked me since I knew Karina has a love & appreciation of photography since we did take Photography class with Mr. Farnsworth together in High School. :)

Over the weekend I met up with Karina & Omar at Newport Beach Backbay and we shot their beautiful engagement session. It was beautiful day and lighting couldn’t be any better, especially since the last two weeks there has been nothing but Spring gloom.

After Backbay we headed down to Corona Del Mar to enjoy the sunset and finish up the shoot.
