I spent an afternoon not all that long ago with Brian and Karen in Santa Monica for their engagement session. The shoot turned out amazing.
Brian and Karen wanted to stay away from beach portraits and opted for a more urban background. The Santa Monica pier was also their idea and lent the carnival atmosphere they were looking for.
Brian and Karen were at first a little quiet but the fun bubbly, goofy side took over for our shoot.
The two confessed they put some time into picking out outfits for the session together.
They were psyched for the shoot, prepped, and in love. A perfect recipe for some amazing photos.
I love the combination of locations for this shoot. I found some great looking alleys, benches, way cool diner and mixed that with the Santa Monica pier. The Santa Monica pier is always a fun carnival vibe.
You can just tell from the photos how much fun these two had at their engagement session in Santa Monica.
Engagement sessions are great because it’s a chance for the couple to get to know me, and I get to know how to make them more comfortable and how to best get out their true personalities.
Brian and Karen will be getting married in just a few weeks at the end of January.
I will be lighting all of their wedding creatives so this wedding will defiantly have a different look.
They will be married at sunset and wanted a stylized look to their wedding photos.
The background will be lit with blue gelled lights.
I cannot wait to share all the amazing photos with you!
But for now, enjoy their e-sesh!
