Denise and Jason.. engagement photos at Venice Beach Pier

Since I just posted the beautiful wedding of Denise and Jason below I thought I would share their engagement session from Venice Beach Pier. Such a sweet and loving couple and their dog shadow.

Marissa and Phillipe, (sneak peak) engagment shoot

Sometimes my job is just sooo hard. Yesterday I HAD to go sailing with Marissa and Phillipe, enjoy wine and a toast at the California Yacht Club and then a sunset walk on the beach in Venice. It was a torturous day but as expected we have some great shots. I haven’t even made it through them all yet but I wanted to give Marissa a little sneak peak at how great they look so far.

BTW if it wasnt obvious this was written all tongue and cheek except for the part about the great photos

Ryan and Nicole engagement session at Terranea Resort, Palos Verdes

Sometimes beauty prevails. I get plenty of requests for beach engagement shoots. We usually have fun around a pier, walk around a neighborhood and run around in the sand. I like to mix it up. But every once in a while, you just dont need to push it. The beauty wins out. Thanks so much to Ryan and Nicole for bringing me to this quiet gorgeous beach in Palos Verdes. Its stark beauty was the perfect back drop for their engagement photos. Their wedding at Wayfares Chapel in May is just up the street. Their guests will be able to enjoy this beautiful view as well. Enjoy. See you guys in May.

Lea and David Engagement shoot in Venice Beach

I will be the first to admit, we had everything stacked against us for this wonderful idea of using Lea and David’s Venice neighborhood as a backdrop for their engagement photos. It was a stormy, blustery Saturday with rain and sun alternating by the minute. Lea had her heart set on using the Venice Beach Pier but the lifeguards had nixed that as it was shut down. Only minutes later while shooting under the pier we realized why as we were shooed off due to a tsunami warning. This was a for me. But in the end it all worked out, we had wind swept hair, but great umbrella photos, some dramatic skies and fun walking around the neighborhood. This first one, so fun and cute, one of my favorite engagement shots. Period.
