Sometimes I wonder. If I’ll ever get tired of shooting beach engagement sessions. It’s so quintessential LA, and the beach is basically just one repetitious backdrop – no colorful walls, twisted shrubbery, unique architecture – but something about it is still so inspiring to me. The simplicity of the blank backdrop with perfect light. And the fact that despite this simplicity it can look different, every. single. time. Sometimes the less there is to work with, the more there is to the photo? The bareness of the backdrop puts even more emphasis on the couple? Or is it that each couple uniquely fills up the space with their laughter, their smiles, their quiet interactions?
Something like that. All I know is that this? I’m definitely not tired of it yet.

This session was so much fun! I loved that they wanted a pretty nature-y location with trees, followed up by some sun-kissed photos by the water. Looking ridiculously good like these two in front of the camera can work up quite an appetite, so we grabbed sushi afterwards and I got to chat with Desiree & Mark more. I was so excited/humbled when Desiree told me she had actually stumbled upon my work years ago, when I first got started shooting weddings! It made me feel like we were old friends, and so appreciative of her support & reaching out to me for her own wedding :)
Can’t wait for their wedding next month!

Silvia and Brian were married at the Hyatt Huntington Beach this summer and it was a most elegant & lovely affair. There were tons of well thought out details, but I was especially enamored by her beautiful lily-of-the-valley bouquet – it was one of the most delicate & pretty bouquets I’ve ever seen! I was also so excited to work once again with my friend Uyen of Sassy Girl Weddings, since any day touched by her coordination magic is sure to be both relaxed and fun!
This was one of my last weddings of the summer, but stay tuned for lots of pretty autumn weddings to come next!
