Balboa Island Engagement Session | Newport Beach Engagement Photographer

Who knew that Riley’s first crush on campus would end up being her soon-to-be husband? She spotted him her freshman year but it wasn’t until her sophomore year when she casually mentioned to a mutual friend that she had a crush on him. Immediately, they planned a “run-in” at the cafeteria so the two could “just happen” to meet. They clicked and the rest is history.

Just a few months before their wedding, we explored a place that Riley grew up going to—Newport Beach & Balboa Island. Hit play on The Head and the Heart’s “Gold” and scroll through their engagement photographs!
