There’s just so so much happy in this session and I love every last bit of it! My heart will never tire of colorful details and documenting sweet love like this. Vanessa & Bryan are both so down to earth and shooting them around the Santa Monica pier with it’s pretty pretty light was so much fun.

Hope you enjoyed this playful session!

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.

At-home engagement sessions are definitely one of my most favorite kinds – you are in an environment that is at once relaxed, calm, quiet, and filled by dear memories. Add in a blooming garden, a hammock, an ocean view, and a couple furry friends and you have the dreamiest engagement photos like the ones you see below. Jackie and Keith have the most beautiful home, and I’m so so glad to they chose to do their engagement photos there!

P.S. More favorite things – Jackie’s sweet updo, the wall of her art creations, and the fact that she chose to go barefoot for the session… love!
