Jake & Karissa // Engaged

Jake & Karissa // Engaged

I had a blast photographing Jake and Karissa at their home town high school in Coalinga, CA where they started dating. They were both drama students in high school and the theater made a great uh… stage.. for some of the photos =)

The week was surrounded by rain; but we got a nice sunny California day. We found a field full of yellow flowers right outside the city which turned out to be an awesome back drop for the sinking sun and also matches the colors they are using in the wedding! Thanks for being such an awesome couple to hang out with and photograph!
