Kristina + Justin // Engaged // Long Beach, Ca

I can’t say enough great things about Kristina and Justin. I love their stories, jokes, style, smiles, and most importantly, their friendship. We were all introduced through a wedding Shelby and I photographed earlier this season. We are so grateful to have been introduced to such caring people. From the outfits they picked out for the shoot, down to the very last refrigerator magnet in their Long Beach home, everything has meaning to Kristina and Justin. Everything told a story. We started the day with brunch in their cosy home. Delicious scones with lemon curd, coffee, and of course a mimosa…or two…okay, three. 🙂 Then we were off to The Stache Bar on 4th street in Long Beach. The place were Kristina and Justin met for the first time. She was on a date, and he couldn’t stop giving her “the eyes” from across the room. We celebrated their beloved meeting space with a couple of hand crafted cocktails from their favorite bartender Fernando. We then skipped down to the appropriately titled “Library” coffee shop on Broadway and Redondo. Justin, a high school english teacher, has an intense love of books and has quite a collection of some pretty impressive first additions so, we felt that tt was a great place to end the shoot. We can’t wait to photograph these two again at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur next July. Kristina and Justin, we can’t wait to continue telling your story:)
