As with a lot of my couples, Shannon and Mike are a bit silly, like me! They had orginnaly decided to have their engagement shoot at a very nice, "fancy" venue in south OC, and that would have been amazing, however, when I met with them to go over things, it was pretty apparent to everyone that that wasn't the route that they should take. Mike is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and owns his own gym in Costa Mesa, so we decided that we would start our shoot there!
Since these two both had a very fun nature to themselves (that's putting it lightly lol), after shooting at Mike's gym, we headed on over to the Balboa Fun Zone in Newport. Their personalities really shined through in their photos and I CAN'T WAIT to capture their wedding in August! WOOT! :)
