Backyard Engagement Photos : Krissi+Clark


They sat together on the couch and she smiled a 100-watt smile. The type of smile that lights up a room. Krissi looked at Clark as he talked about his life and career dreams. Clark is a financial planner in Newport Beach, but beyond the walls of his office, his life revolves around Krissi.

Together Clark and Krissi spend time with people who share the same passions they do…and joke their motto is: Us Against the World. Clark explained that–even in the face of doubt or worry–Krissi supported him as he built his business and became his biggest champion.

When Krissi hears Clark say this, she reaches out and touches his hand. “She’s the vice president of my life,” he says and Krissi smiles. A 100-watt smile.

I’m incredibly excited to have spent the afternoon with Krissi and Clark…such a great couple and I can’t wait for their wedding. They promise good music, good food, and plenty of dancing…Clark is even going to make me a mixed tape to prepare me for the audio goodness in store!

Clark and Krissi chose a location special to them for their engagement photos…Clark’s family owns a house that backs up to a gorgeous park in Orange County, so we started the session amongst the trees and nature and later their backyard.

When I first met Clark, he showed up to my studio in an impeccably tailored suit. And a pocketchief. I knew he’d bring his a-game for the engagement session attire and I wasn’t let down! 😉

Oh, Kris…you’re stunning. Truly.
Many thanks to Kacee Geoffroy for hair and makeup!

After the park, we headed to their family’s backyard, a place they’ve made memories bar-be-que-ing and enjoying long summer nights. Indulging their sweet tooth, Clark and Krissi planned to make s’mores…ON THE CONDITIONED THEY SHARED WITH ME. Obvs.

S’more bling, you say?

Krissi lights up any room with her smile…and now we have proof. Oh, and the sparklers might help too.

I’m thrilled to be working with such a great couple and Katie of Intertwined Events…I hope their backyard engagement photos are a perfect depiction of their love.
