Newport Beach Engagement : Lesley+Colin


They’re two of the nicest people who’d meet. They walk hand-in-hand and smile as their reflections bounce from nearby windows in the Orange County sun. Lesley walked the same streets of Newport Beach as a child, dining on the harbor with her family. Years later the brick pathway leads her into the arms of the man she’s fallen in love with.

Lesley and Colin met at work, two lawyers who happened to walk the halls of the same firm. After hanging out with in a similar group of friends, they realized they had much in common and the friendship blossomed. Years later they spend their days walking the halls of the same firm…and also walking their neighborhood streets with their dogs. Hand in hand.

They’re planning a stunning wedding this June at La Estancia in La Jolla, but decided to have their engagement session in Lido Harbor of Newport Beach. When they first met, they often alluded to a popular SNL skit (I’m On A Boat!), so it was befitting to, well, showcase their love around boats. Naturally.

We started the engagement session in Lido and Lesley couldn’t have been cuter in front of the camera…

Colin is one of the nicest gentlemen you could meet…and the way he looks at Lesley can melt your heart…

They’re so much fun to be around and I’m extra appreciative for Kerrie of Platinum Weddings by Kerrie for introducing me to them!

I’ll end of this note because…com’on…they’re almost on a boat! 🙂

Happy Friday!
