Pretty Santa Monica {Santa Monica photographer}

I had the great fortune of living in Santa Monica for 4 years and loved almost every minute, the 405 and the 10 freeways were the banes of my existence…but what Angeleno really enjoys sitting in traffic?

My time is Santa Monica was great both personally and professionally. Who wouldn’t love slipping off their shoes for work and running around on the beach capturing fun family moments? Or better yet, playing at Pacific Park, the games and the bright colorful rides all make for fun portraits too!

All within a half mile are some beautiful locations, both out in the open and some hidden gems as well! Here are some of my favorites from Santa Monica, and these are only in a small part of Santa Monica, the city truly lends itself beautifully to photography.

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.

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!

Gregg & Kayla get engaged {Proposal Photography}

Gregg contacted me asking for me to document his proposal to Kayla on a beautiful Friday evening.

He had it all planned out; they were going for a sunset cruise on a friend’s boat, I was to “hang out” at the end of the jetty in Marina Del Rey (with my non-obtusive 400mm lens), they would turn the boat just right, he would get down on bended knee and pop the question.

The days leading up to the big evening, fires were raging in San Diego. Gregg was concerned with air quality and ash, I told him it shouldn’t be a problem, but in fact, it will work to our advantage and create an amazing sunset!

And it was an AMAZING sunset!

The whole evening was perfect! Kayla had no idea what was about to happen!
