This Newport Back Bay engagement session with Vanessa and Matthew was so fun and colorful!
My good friend Drew over at Scrap Media actually filmed me photographing these cuties for a video showing you how I pose and interact with couples to create a fun shoot experience 🙂 Take a look at the video!
Vanessa and Matthew are such good sports! When we photographed/filmed this session, I was actually dealing with some crazy back pain and couldn’t move around much. They were super patient with me!
At this point, you’ve probably noticed the bouquet of gorgeous flowers Vanessa held throughout the video. SHE MADE THAT! Vanessa is the mastermind behind Cultivated by Faith, a Southern California based floral company for weddings. Her work is high-end and so well-crafted, anyone would be lucky to have her as their florist!
Vanessa and Matthew have actually been married 2 years now, and they’ve participated in tons of shoots for photographers and wedding vendors! They have a really natural chemistry in front of the camera, and it’s easy + fun to be around them. Only a few weeks after this video was filmed, I went to a bible study at a friend’s house. Vanessa came too! It was so sweet to reconnect, and we’ve been seeing each other almost weekly since then at the group! Such a small world in the best way 🙂
The Back Bay was the perfect spot for our shoot! The flowers were starting to come out, and the light was gorgeous. I’ve been photographing couples and hiking this area for years, so I want to come back any chance I get!
Thanks again to these two for being a part of this fun video shoot! I had a blast with them!
