Kalista and Kyle met at a sailing class in Long Beach, CA. Kyle was the sailing instructor and Kalista was his only female on board that day. The couple hit it off after their first date and Kalista spent the next year taking 3 different sailing courses and skippering every possible on-the-water sailing class of his that she could. Almost 5 years later, Kyle proposed very unexpectedly during a trip to the Caribbean. When Kyle and Kalista were considering what to do for their engagement photos, they instantly decided they should be on a sailboat. And not just any sailboat, but Kyle’s dream sailboat, a boat he captained many times during the sailing classes in Long Beach, the Schooner Atlantas. She is a gorgeous handmade wooden boat that was built in Nova Scotia over 40 years ago, and has been owned by Captain Ron Remsburg for all these years. Captain Ron, who runs the sailing program and befriended Kyle many years ago, kindly agreed to take Kalista and Kyle out on the Atlantas for a perfect day of sailing along with their incredible photographer, Fawn of Sequins and Candy.
