Now despite everything your brain is telling you, these are not Anthropologie/J.Crew/UO models. They are just my fabulous clients, Sandy & Eric, who are not only ridiculously good looking, but also fun, and sweet, and putting together a beautiful wedding for this summer at the Skirball. I always love shooting around Abbot Kinney in Venice – the bright colors, cute storefronts, and artsy-hipstery-urbany vibe make it one of my fave spots to both hang out & shoot, and this time was no exception!

{ Angela + Fong | Venice Engagement }

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

For Angela & Fong’s engagement session, we started off at the Venice canals. The canals are on the west side, practically in my backyard, and as much as I’ve always wanted to visit them, I somehow never had until their session. It’s pretty random when you stumble across them, you’re driving along, on what appears to be an ordinary road in an ordinary neighborhood, and BAM! Water where streets should be. The whole area was sunny & refreshing & quaint and I loved photographing them along the canals and the little alleyways between them. We rounded out our Venice session by heading down to Abbot Kinney for some colorful shots and finished up at the beach.

Angela & Fong are the sweetest couple {and as you’ll see below, pretty darn ridiculously good looking} – I can’t wait for their wedding at the Turnip Rose this fall!


{ Meghan + Jason | Abbot Kinney Engagement }

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Meghan and Jason live in Denver, Colorado. Since they booked me over email (after finding me via Green Wedding Shoes, one of my most favorite wedding blogs!), we didn’t get to meet until their engagement session last month. I was so ecstatic to find that we hit it off immediately – they are abundantly kind & laidback, fun & stylish (they did afterall meet while working at Urban Outfitters) and I could not be more excited for their wedding this fall at the Sonnenalp Resort in the snow-capped mountains of Vail, Colorado! From what they described, its going to be an amazing day filled with tons of great details – including all the guys in the wedding (read: including the dads!) sporting Vans.

Abbot Kinney, hands-down the cutest little street on the west side, felt like the perfect place to photograph such a hip & happy couple. At the end of the session, we headed down to the sea – we didn’t include the beach in our original plans, but in the end they expressed wanting to carry those beachy memories of LA back to Colorado with them :)

P.S. Meghan is an incredible fashion photographer & you can check out her work here. Her photography background resulted in a those fun moments where I would start describing a certain pose/shot, our photog brains magically connected, and Meghan knew exactly what I was talking about :) Her photography is stunning, but she clearly knows how to work it on the other side of the camera as well!

I had been itching for an opportunity to use these fantastic fabric flowers in a shoot, and loved that Meghan & Jason were so awesomely game for incorporating them :) They were created by the amazing Kim Sanders of Art with Nature Design for the Utterly Engaged Design Challenge we worked on together. She came up with the dreamiest tablescape and to my great joy, gifted these handemade beauties to me at the end!

Abbot Kinney never fails to deliver my favorite things – amazing color & gorgeous light…
