In high school, Chris nervously drove Brianne through beautiful Grimes Canyon and parked alongside the road in front of an oil rig. He liked her, and had hopes that they would share their first kiss that night. And well, he got lucky, because Brianne liked him, too. And it was there in Grimes Canyon in front of that oil rig that they did indeed share their first kiss.
Chris and Brianne continued to date throughout high school, but after high school Chris moved out of state for college. A few years later Brianne was surprised when her phone rang and it was Chris. He had graduated…and was coming home. They got together and ended up picking up where they had left off, quickly falling back into each other and back into love. The day came when Chris knew that Brianne had to be his permanently, so once again he took her driving through the canyon, down that windy road, and he parked in front of that very same oil rig. This time, he pulled out a ring.
About a year ago, Brianne and Chris opened up Enegren Brewing Company. Together they are chasing their dreams and making them a reality. We shot their engagement photos at their awesome brewery and in Grimes Canyon, and Chris brought along his 1971 Jaguar to spice things up a bit. ;) Afterward, Chris & Brianne generously poured us a sampling of their beer at the brewery and let us just tell you–it is INSANELY delicious. These two will marry this October at the Mountain Mermaid in Topanga Canyon and we’re soooo excited to be a part of their day–many thanks to Hallie Slade of La Boheme Events for sending them our way! Brianne & Chris–thank you so much for your generosity and for such a fun session! You two are awesome. –Lots of love, A & N
