crista + chris | new york city engagement by joy marie | destination wedding photographer

I met up with Crista & Chris in the Big Apple for their New York City Engagement shoot at quite possibly the most gorgeous time of year.  I had so much fun with these two (and their adorable son). We were able to hit some of New York City’s most iconic landmarks on a gorgeous Fall day. I’m so excited for their upcoming destination wedding at the beautiful Capella Pedregal Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

trina + dalip | destination engagement shoot by joy marie | san francisco wedding photographer

Trina & Dalip wanted to have their engagement shoot amongst trees, BIG trees! So…I made a litte trip up to the San Francisco area to meet up with them at the Muir Woods National Forest, and we found some REALLY big, AHmazing Redwood Trees! It was surreal shooting in a forest full of 500+ year-old trees. I love when couples come up with unique location ideas for their engagement session! These two also happen to be big time foodies, so we ended the day at Tyler Florence’s world-renowned restaurant, El Paseo, in the quaint little town of Mill Valley. It was a such great day with these two, and I’m super excited for their Spring wedding at the gorgeous Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma. Can’t wait, Trina & Dalip!..xo
