Balboa Island Newport Beach Engagement Session :: Sarah + Phil

Balboa Island engagement session 0016

As if I haven’t hyped up Sarah & Phil’s Balboa Island / Newport Beach engagement session enough yet, I’m going to pause here for a bit and write a little bit about these two, because I want to get across why I’m so excited about their engagement photos and their upcoming wedding.

I know I often go on about how wonderful and perfect bla bla bla my brides and grooms are, but Sarah & Phil are truly special. They both have this unassuming, easy-going nature and rarefied kindness that rubs off on you and reminds you that life is beautiful and relationships are beautiful. When you’re around them, you automatically feel your guard drop, the pretenses fall away, your smile widening, and you just find yourself laughing along with them.

The cherry on top was that (even though they had warned me that they were quite nervous about being on camera) they were both extremely easy to photograph, because their connection was so real and their affection so unmistakable. For this post, I chose photos that I feel best showcase that…
