Alongside Nhan-Stop Photography, I had the pleasure of shooting Ben and Liz’s engagement session in Downtown Orange. Their outfits paired nicely with the downtown, vintage vibe that I adore about the Orange Circle. Honestly, Downtown Orange is one of my favorite places to shoot because of its character, history, and the perfect combination of old and new. Ben and Liz, as usual, were very relaxed, silly, and present. It’s hard to feel rushed or stressed around these two, as they make the most of every moment and value the presence of others rather than materialistic things. We perused through antique stores, namely Country Roads Antiques and Gardens, and had a blast taking in each unique room display. Hope you enjoy the photos!
Fun Fact: Although Ben looks like a sumo wrestler here, he was actually singing (or screaming) the Spongebob Squarepants theme song!
…And for dessert, ice cream!!! Nothing like ice cream to bring out childlike joy.
If you know Ben or Liz, you know about their hearts for worship. After the shoot, friends surprised Liz at her apartment for a brunch-themed birthday party. The night ended in worship and affirmation, and I couldn’t help but document their worship-leading together. Liz says that it brings her the most joy when they worship together, and it’s something special they share.
