Happy Friday!

Today is bittersweet as I'm leaving the sunny shores of Miami with only the slightest hint of a tan (damn my pale Celtic skin) for the hustle, bustle and excitement of NYC.

Okay onto the total and utter gorgeousness I've got in store for you all today.

Lisa and Graeme are one good-looking, loved up couple with some serious chemistry. Their Newport Beach engagement shoot is a delightful combination of sweet and sexy.

I love their relaxed, complimentary e-shoot style (white tee/vest + jeans) and quite frankly I need Lisa's wedges in my life.

Closer to Love Photography were on hand to capture their playful, beautiful love amidst the California sunshine.

See what I mean? Totally and utterly gorgeous with a side of sexy!

Lisa shares a little glimpse into her and Graeme's relationship:

We met at a boat party that neither of us really wanted to go to. We got dragged by our respective friends to this party. My girlfriend said at the time, ‘You never know, you may meet the man of your dreams.' As it turns out I did, although on the initial meeting neither of us realized this at the time. I think the most important thing about our relationship is that we have always both given our all to each other, taken risks, have deep love and respect for each other's past and see the potential of our future together. Graeme truly is the most amazing person I have had the honor to know. We are always laughing together and affectionate to the point our friends can't stand it but have also gotten used to it.  We have had some amazing experiences around the world together. We have been very blessed in that respect and will always share that.

Was it love at first sight? No it wasn't. We believe what we have is built on stronger foundations than that. Meeting and falling in love took us both by surprise but here we are today and very much looking forward to marrying each other.

Congratulations Lisa and Graeme!
