Stuart & Daena: Engaged (part 1)

It’s difficult to put into words how much I have been looking forward to sharing these photos with you all.  I first met Daena when my wife and I started attending Redemption Church in Costa Mesa.  She was brought in to head up our worship team and they could not have made a better choice!  Not only is she an INCREDIBLE singer, but her giftings in teaching, leading, and serving are abundant.  Shortly after, we were able to meet her husband-to-be, Stuart, who is an equally talented singer/musician/creative and has an equally big heart for ministry.  The more I got to know them, the more I NEEDED to take their pictures.  We decided on a day that best suited their story and some of the things they love to do most together….singing, eating and drinking on the beach, sitting by the bonfire, going on a hike…

The love they have for each other is so organic.  They call each other by nicknames of “love” and “ace” and absolutely zero of these shots were scripted with the exception of “sit here” or “stand there”.  ENJOY!!

P.S. ‘Part II’ is coming soon which will include all the film shots we got from the day.  So it’ll be rad…

Cheers!
