Lauren and Andy have a pretty funny tie to us and up until their engagement session, we had no idea who these two individuals were. It was Lauren's mom who actually contacted us and after a fun long conversation on the phone we discovered that Andy's father (Gregory Sievers, an awesome artist from Idaho) is actually good friends with Justin's father (Dustin Lyon, also an amazing artist from Idaho). Then come to find out, Lauren's mother is best friends with one of my first cousins! The world really is a very small place!
We are looking forward to Lauren and Andy's wedding in August!
I went back to my old stomping grounds in Manhattan Beach to shoot an engagement session with the lovely Tina and Buddy. I say "my old stomping grounds" because this was where I use to work as a nanny and would walk the main beach there all of the time(before I even considered photography as a career). I loved going back there, pleasant memories and the weather was amazing for a portrait session!
Buddy and Tina live just live a few blocks from the Manhattan Beach Pier and I was so glad that they chose to have their engagement session there so I could have an excuse to visit one of my favorite beaches in Southern California.
I am so glad we were able sneak an engagement session in for Buddy and Tina as their wedding is scheduled for this weekend (May 24th)!
There was a shark on display at the end of the Pier in front of the Aquarium, this was kind of an inside joke for Buddy & Tina!
Here's my favorite shot of the day. One thing that I think is great about this photo is the pink scarf (pagmina I believe the correct name for it!) used as a prop which adds another element to the story of this image. I definitely would recommend using props to my future clients.
