Boy was I impressed when Michelle and Phil pulled up in their newly restored 62 Nova. You could hear the engine from down the street. The cherry red paint job was prestine and this couple was ready for some hot rod fun. We started their engagement session in downtown Claremont. I thought that would be a perfect location because this September they are getting married at the beautiful Padua Hills Theatre. We cruised the streets for a while getting candid photos of them driving the 62 Nova, then a few at Clarmeont City Hall. When the sun started to set we headed up into the hills for some magical amber lighting. It was the perfect combination for a lovely couple and a hot red nova! Michelle and Phil are so sweet and I had a great time getting to know them better. I am so excited for their Padua Hills wedding.
