Lauren and Nick are getting hitched this December. For their engagement session, they decided to have some fun with their Yorkie “Sugar” and bring Nick’s collection of vintage mopeds out into a beautiful field in Casper’s Park. When we arrived at the park, we were a bit surprised they did not allow dogs, so we made the best of our time and worked with a couple different locations. I love how many different moments we were able to capture.
Katrina and Adam are a sweet couple who recently moved to Long Beach from Washington State. They have tons of great style, adorable smiles, and lots love to share! We spent the eventing at a beautiful beach Laguna and captured these fun engagement pictures with their energetic puppy. My favorite part of the evening was taking some unexpected pictures of these two with Adam’s vintage beetle right after sunset. It kinda reminds me of when Mat and I took our engagement pictures with his Delorean. Dream cars always make great props!
Stephanie and Ryan are a super fun couple with great style and lots of personality. They are planning a wedding for this November in Huntington Beach. For their engagement session, Stephanie wanted to do something a little “fancier” with their attire and focus their session of the downtown architecture of HB. We started their session a couple hours before sunset and took a stroll down a cool alley that had lots of great nooks with cool textures.
Christina and Jason are an outgoing pair who love the theater (among many other things). Christina is a real Opera singer and Jason is a graphic designer who love acting. They met many years ago when they were both in their teens, during a stage performance of Guys and Dolls. About 7 years ago they reconnected and have been inseparable ever since! They’ve been spending the past few years in NYC and recently moved back to California. Christina first contact me back at the beginning of this year saying “Yours are the first wedding photos that I have not rolled my eyes at! I love how they are candid, tasteful, and beautiful.” I knew then she was Awesome, with a capitol A! We soon met and they shared with me their plans of a beautiful November wedding. This weekend, I had the great pleasure of capturing Christina and Jason’s engagement pictures at their old stomping grounds… The Pacific Theaters in Culver City!
Another fun fact about Christina, she is an avid knitter. She made a jumbo red scarf just for her engagement session!
I love when my couples make their photo shoots personal. When Christina told me about her and Jason’s new “bat-mobile” purchase, we both agreed it would be awesome to have it as a prop for the session! We took these last few images on a parking structure’s rooftop. From there we had beautiful views of Culver City and a beautiful sunset.
More to come of these two lovers on this date…
