ABBOT KINNEY + VENICE CANAL, CALIFORNIA
Something that I’ve always loved about shooting on-location instead of in a studio is that I get to visit new and unexplored locations! I totally love it when clients pick a location that I’ve never been to! In this case, Sara and Paul wanted their engagement photos to be in a hip street in Venice called ‘Abbot Kinney’ that’s filled with boutiques and earthy restaurants.
We visited a couple of places, including a pizza place called Gjelina and a coffee shop named Intelligensia, and then roamed the somewhat hidden Venice Canal.
Sara and Paul were such a cute couple to photograph! Paul admitted he thinks he’s horrible in photos, but my gosh, he did so well! And Sara was so fearless when I asked them to go where no human really wants to go – near spiders!
I’m so looking forward to photographing your wedding this fall!
