I shot this engagement session with Sarah + Matty at Venice Beach. I had never shot there before so I was super excited for a fresh location to work with! I especially loved the personalities of Sarah + Matty, so easy and fun to photograph!

It had been a while since I shot in Downtown LA, I was especially looking forward to Tessa + Jay's engagement session after Tessa showed me their invites that she had designed herself. The invites were very "urban city" as I would describe them, so of course we both agreed that Downtown LA would be the best fit for their wedding style!
Nicole DeAnne was Tessa's Hair + Make-up genius!

Hello, Excellent le blog ! Tombe sous le charme du rendu photographique. Bravo. Juste une question : comment obtiens-tu ce rendu "vintage" des photos ? J'aimerai, sinon en faire, au moins essayer d'en faire autant !
