Cooper Family {Vow Renewal Photography, Newport Beach}

I was contacted by the fabulous Janine who was planning her parent’s surprise vow renewal in Newport Beach.

Mom and Dad flew in from the east cost, Janine flew in from the middle of the country and the rest of the family was

fortunate enough to drive up from just south of Orange County.

Dad didn’t seem like such a happy camper to be dressed in a suit for family pictures on the beach, but he was a trooper

and hung tight with me and the family while the gentle waves rushed over his toes.

The game plan was to photograph the family as a whole under the Newport Pier. Check.

Next I was to steal away Mom and Dad to another spot, while everyone else quickly set up an aisle for the ceremony. (Which

by the way, Janine herself performed!)

Dad was NOT thrilled with me leading them through the mass amount of people on the beach, to a spot that I declared

to be the best spot on the whole beach for some portraits! He looked at me side eyed, and humored me for as long as

he could. Check.

As we walked back to our spot under the pier, Mom and Dad slowly took in the aisle, the small altar, the wedding

bouquet, the boutonniere and vows that were handed to them.

It was so wonderful to see such love surrounding Mom and Dad! Even people walking by

stopped and watched the ceremony. I was honored to capture such a wonderful surprise!

Love at El Matador Beach {Los Angeles Engagement Photographer}

We all met up on a blustery afternoon at El Matador-my absolute favorite beach-for N and M’s engagement session.

Once we got used to the wind whipping around are faces, we had a blast shooting.

What’s a little sand in your face when you have such an awesome couple?!?

And oh my goodness, LOOK AT HER DRESS!!! I want it. I wanted it then, and I told her I might just have to rip it off her

and run away with it…although I didn’t, but I wanted to.

Family Portraits in Manhattan Beach {Manhattan Beach photographer}

Oh my goodness how I love shooting in Manhattan! I just love the light under the pier, and the water is absolutely

beautiful! From shooting underneath, I like to head out on to the sand and let the kiddos run around, we all get to dip

our toes in the water and get to have some fun!

I feel so fortunate to have this in my backyard!

Katy ❤️’s Manny {Los Angeles Engagement Photographer}

…oh.my.goodness….

These two are awesome!!!

Katy and Manny are getting married later this year and asked me to shoot their engagement portraits. We met up on a quiet Sunday afternoon at Tongva Park in Santa Monica for the first half of our shoot. We were a bit hesitant due to the weather, it rained that morning, but we decided to go for it, and thank goodness we did!

I love shooting at this beautiful new park, Santa Monica really did a great job with this one, great landscaping, fabulous trees and flowers, all make for a lovely shoot.

After Tongva Park, we headed over to LACMA and played in the outdoor display “Urban Lights”.

However, it was PACKED! I had no idea how busy it would be on a Sunday evening…anytime I drove by was super late and empty. Live and learn. We ended up going back the following Tuesday night so we could have the place to ourselves (which we kinda sorta did).

Love love love!
