Irvine Park Engagement Session



ChristineBentleyPhotography_3503

What happens when you run an Instagram contest asking couples to follow not only you but one of your favorite hair and makeup teams? You get this! We were so thrilled to get so many people who were interested in this free engagement session, and even more thrilled to have randomly chosen this very sweet couple. They are getting married out of the country in a very intimate wedding in Jamaica (I know, I wish I was going….I think I asked 200 times!) However I was thrilled to photograph them one afternoon in Irvine. I have to tell you, this is one of those DREAM couples! Even Christina and Vanessa at Prive Beauty Group agreed that they were super grateful and thankful for this opportunity. ALSO, they were willing to put our vision together with virtually no demands…just a, “WE TRUST YOU”…..oh yes, a photographers dream come true! It was fun, we laughed a lot, did a handstand or two, maybe played with hair and layed in the dirt….I LOVE their photos! Please visit the amazing team of Prive on this link to view why they are one of my favs! www.privebeauty.com

Venice and Santa Monica Engagement Session



ChristineBentleyPhotography_3362

What do you get when you have a very handsome man, and a beauty pageant contestant….well amazing photos that’s what! So for this engagement session, I think the only difficult part was finding a parking spot in Venice! Other than that, the puppies, the boat, the bikes…..it all was way too easy and super difficult to take a bad photograph! Nicole….lets just say I think she looks like a super model and I swear that girls laughs just about every single time she smiles. No wonder that Bryan fell in love with her! And how about those fur babies! LOVE when my couples bring those guys to the shoots! Can’t wait for this St. Regis Wedding! I just know that A Good Affair, will create the most amazing event XXOO

San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session



ChristineBentleyPhotography_3361

It’s not very often that you get to start a shoot at 8:30am! But for this busy couple, we certainly had to have an early start! Morgan and Eric were totally full of smiles and ready to have a great time! I loved their energy! We started off in the Los Rios District of San Juan Capistrano, and ended in one of my all time favorite places, The San Juan Capistrano Mission. And ummm hello to the outfits that Morgan was wearing! She totally killed it! I loved everything about this couple and I can not wait to photograph their wedding with the fabulous Kevin Covey! Such an amazing wedding this one will be! XXOO

Santa Margarita Ranch Wedding



ChristineBentleyPhotography_3224

Such a sweet couple and such a sweet wedding! Young love, what can I say? There is something very very magical about it. Driving a few hours to Santa Margarita Ranch also proved to be the perfect backdrop for this oh so country duo. Rylan had just gotten back from deployment to the open arms of his fiance and now wife! It was really so wonderful to witness them together. The first look, the aniticipation and the love! I loved every last detail that they put together for this wedding. It turned out amazing! As a photographer we really wish that we could photograph couples all day long, but we know that the day is not about a photoshoot. It’s a celebration, so I am always very thankful when couples do allow me plenty of time to play, and in playing I mean deliver the most amazing images! Thank you Kerri Hatter of LVL Weddings and Events for your referral, and seeing that Jennifer is your niece I am honored that you even considered me. Thank you for trusting me with your family! Also thank you Michelle Fairless Photography for being my second shooter and pal while we conquered the country! I had a blast shooting with you!

Paradise Point San Diego Wedding

There is so much to say about this couple that it becomes so hard to write about them. Thankful that they came my way via LVL’s amazing wedding education series, and we booked for their October wedding. THRILLED….I am always so thrilled to be part of a couple that is so much in love. Kara and Jason, are that couple….they just truly melt into each others arms and they are so easy to work with! I mean, how about those puppies too? All around such fun couple. A couple that has had their struggles already, with life, and they for sure know that the person at their side, is the person they want, in good and bad and everything in between. But lets not also state the obvious, that these two are just both drop dead gorgeous! So inside and out, they are two of the most beautiful people I have ever met. Thank you SOOO much for allowing me to witness your adoration for each other….it was such a beautiful day and I was honored to be a part of it! An incredible location with the most amazing team! Emily (LVL EVENTS)….you are amazing and you made sure that this day went on without a hitch! Brian (Elevated Pulse), you are truly amazing at what you so, transforming that room with stunning lighting and of course keeping the dance floor full! My FAV video team to work with, Brian and Ryan of Perryfield Films….I’d swear that together we create the most stunning images. Thank you Kristine for being an incredible second shooter and again to the most amazing couple! Design Visage, Emily and Ella, the girls simple looked amazing!!!!
