A Vintage Inspired Photo Shoot with a Kite

Each engagement session photographer Clayton Austin sends me is simply breathtaking and this one is no exception. Although he lives in Texas, Clayton travels to Cali often and was out here last week for a wedding and a bunch of stunning session. Kristina + Daniel found Clayton through Green Wedding Shoes, so it is only natural that I wanted to feature their lovely engagement photographed in San Clemente, CA.
