Andrew & Kristin – {Santa Margarita, CA}

I had the pleasure of getting to photograph my good friends Andrew and Kristin in Santa Margarita, CA.  It was a truly beautiful day on the central coast.

Their Love Story:

Andrew met Kristin at work, Family Care Network, which is an amazing foster care agency where I also used to work.  They soon found out they shared a love for online gaming.  After a few weeks, Andrew asked Kristin out via email.  Andrew says, he “wooed her with Halo and Rock Band and the rest is history”.  Kristin says Andrew, “had her at Halo”.  Andrew and Kristin went out on a date to play miniature golf and then they went for a romantic evening walk on the beach.  As they held hands walking the moonlit shores, they knew this relationship was going to be something special.

Andrew and Kristin have lots of fun together and share a strong faith.  Seeing the love that these guys have for each other is really inspiring.  I look forward to seeing their relationship grow and strengthen in the years to come.  We had a ton of fun running/driving/climbing/hiking/maybe trespassing around finding sweet places to shoot.

We went out in my yard and found some old farm stuff that has been there far longer than I have…

Then we went to the train tracks and caught a ride…

The great thing about the central coast is that there is tons of wide open spaces…

And finally time to take a break and just relax…
