On Thanksgiving Eve, Katy and I took the scenic drive down to Palos Verdes for Molly and John’s engagement session at Terranea Resort. Now for those of you who don’t know, Molly is Katy’s best friend, sister, ride or die, Maid of Honor, etc., and they even have an MK tattoo for their names (not Michael Kors) to prove it! Anyway, Molly and John got engaged about two months before us (thanks for the pressure John 😉 ha), and are getting married two months before us too, so next year is going to be one big party.
We had way too much fun on this shoot. Time definitely flew by! Shahla and Dylan brought some of their favorite guilty pleasures with them – champagne and McDonald’s – which made for some adorable photos at the end. It’s always my favorite when my couples bring things that define them and their personalities!
Last week, Kellie and Jesse’s engagement session took us to the always beautiful Malibu Creek State Park. I’m always a fan of this location because there are so many places to shoot with various backdrops – all stunning. Not to mention, you definitely get a little workout in to get to each spot!
Living in California, we have the best lighting year round! Leo Carrillo has got to be one of my favorite beach locations for engagement sessions. It has everything from the beautiful rock formations, to the stunning golden fields. Mina and Nabil wa….
I had so much fun with Kathryn and Will a couple of weeks ago in Westlake Village! We were originally planning to shoot at a different location, but Kathryn made an incredible game time decision to change to a nearby outdoor park. Man, am I so glad she did! This location was 5 minutes away from my house, and was my first time ever shooting there (it was right under my nose and I didn’t event know it). Kathryn and Will brought a bluetooth speaker playing some of their favorite tunes – I’m definitely making music mandatory for all shoots now…
Greystone Mansion has got to be one of my all time favorite locations in Los Angeles. Tucked away in Beverly Hills, this iconic landmark was built in 1928 and has more character than you’ll know what to do with. Janet and Andy came dressed perfectly for a Greystone Mansion Engagement Session.
Another beautiful day in Malibu with another beautiful bride and groom to be! I feel so incredibly lucky, not only to have places like Malibu that are a hop, jump and a skip away, but to have such amazing couples like Katie and Nath…
This engagement session at Calamigos Ranch started out perfectly, right off the bat. Juliana and Eric brought a little speaker playing Chris Stapleton – it doesn’t get much better than that, I could have photographed these two all day!
Man, I have a new found love for Palos Verdes! 🙂 Benson and Rebecca thought long and hard on where they wanted to have their engagement session. After much thought, they decided on their hometown of Palos Verdes, where they both grew up….
