Tina & Henry : Engaged : Hermosa Beach, Ca

Tina & Henry are the quiet type.
They have an easy kind of love. A gentle, unassuming kind of love. No words necessary, really.
The way she looks at him with her shy blue eyes. The way he holds her, reassuring her he’s close.
It’s a secret language only the two of them understand.
I was invited in to catch a glimpse of them as a newly engaged couple. And the day was dreamy.

Tina & Henry, it was such a pleasure spending the afternoon with you. I love how simple your love is and I’m so happy with what we created. I wish you both a very happy engagement and I hope to be photographing your elopement in a field or a creek or somewhere beautifully intimate. Soon. 😉

    I couldn’t decide which image to pin — the first or last one — so I pinned both. Yup, it’s true. I’m greedy.
