Love Shoot: Kristin & Michael

I know you love all things preppy just as much as do, which is why I knew you would love today’s sunrise engagement shoot from photographer Erich McVey. Taken on a freezing cold morning at the beach, they sure turned out wonderfully…

Don’t you love these?! Kristin and Michael have known each other since they were children, but as Kristin says, “Our friendship kind of took a different turn during the summer of 2010 – something just started to click. We began hanging out with the same people, spent lots of time serving at our church together, and even separately started finding excuses to be around each other. We tried to ignore it and explain it away, but it soon became apparent that there was something there. We started dating in April 2011 and took the fast track to marriage – fell in love and got engaged in November, and are now anxiously awaiting our May wedding! It’s been the best adventure, and we’ve been blessed and surprised from the beginning.”


A big thank you to Erich McVey for sharing these photos with us – Erich’s work is gorgeous, and I just can’t wait until the next time we get feature his work!
