Orange County Engagement Photographer | Anniversary Photos in Seal Beach, CA

Recently we met up with Tim and Charlene to take some anniversary photos in Seal Beach, CA. This year, they're celebrating 20 years of marriage and it was so much fun to document their still adorable chemistry after all these years! As a wedding photographer I see a lot of couples at the beginning stages of their journey together; engagement photos, the wedding day.
