You know when you meet a couple and their chemistry just explodes? That’s what happened when I photographed Chrissy and John at El Matador Beach for their engagement session the other day. Amongst the California super bloom, I witnessed sparks flying and it translated so well onto the photos in this blog post. I mean, swoon!
Although these guys reside in Northern California, most of their families are located in the Los Angeles area, which is where their summer wedding will be. Best of both worlds, am I right? They were such a hoot to photograph, I cannot wait to document their big day this upcoming August!
As a couple of adventurers, Brett and Rebecca wanted to have their engagement session in downtown Los Angeles, in spots that showed a bit more of the culture of the city. It was a location that stayed true to their wanderlust nature (they spent their past Christmas holidays in the Sarengeti!). They knew so much about LA itself that it made me question whether I personally lived in the city as well, haha.
With El Nino looming in the air, I was excited to find that the day we were shooting Alex and Lucia’s engagement portraits, the weather was beautifully crisp and clear. We started the session in a quiet park overlooking downtown Los Angeles that I never knew about!
The last time I saw these two were in the summer of last year, so it was really nice to see them again, all dolled up and ready for the camera, haha. But seriously, how photogenic do these ladies look?! They also brought their adorable English Pug in his cute bow-tie with them to the shoot. Ah, I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in a few months!
