Oh Summer {Manhattan Beach photographer}

I am the worst at keeping up with the blog!

Here we are, already in August, how quickly that happens!!! I hope you’re enjoying your summer, the long hot days, and the wonderfully warm nights too. I hope you’ve had amazing adventures with your family and friends, I know I’ve had some amazing times with new friends in the wilderness, and enjoying time exploring locally. I even had the opportunity to foster an energetic kitten for a little bit while he recovered and learned how cushy life can be indoors.

I know we’re only in early August here, but I know some of kiddos are getting ready to go back to school, parents are rejoicing, and the routines of ‘regular’ life will soon be back.

For me in photography, this is the time I start to look forward to the holiday season (and every year it never ceases to blow my mind! I’ve been doing this for 12 years, and every year, it’s “the holidays are only 4 months away! WHAAAAT?!?).  I am beginning to think about locations for photo sessions, and I began thinking about some of my favorite locations around the South Bay.

I have lived in the South Bay of Los Angeles for over 4 years, and I fall in love with the Manhattan Beach pier with every shoot .

The pier itself lends for pretty architectural lines both underneath as well as while serving as a backdrop. Under the pier at sunset has some of the best lighting around, especially when the sun sets right through the opening….the reflections at low tide make for amazing details, and even in winter, the water lapping at your toes is incredibly refreshing!

I’m sharing some of my favorite images from previous photo sessions at the Manhattan Beach pier. If you live anywhere near, it’s pretty much a requirement to have your portraits taken there!

Wedding portraits at Griffith Observatory {Los Angeles Wedding Photographer}

I met Brian a couple of years ago when he called me to shoot some headshots of him for a website. We had a great time shooting in Santa Monica, and the images were great!

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Brian telling me he needed some more portraits, but this time, because he’s getting married! The portraits were to be of him and his fiancee, Claudia, at one of their favorite places in town, Griffith Observatory.

I saw Brian and Claudia immediately, looking absolutely fabulous! One of the first things Claudia told me was the whole reason she contacted Brian through the site, was because of his good lookin’ headshot. AWESOME!!!

They let me in on the surprise of the day, they had just eloped! They already got married and these were to be their first portraits as husband and wife. Woohoo!

Congratulations to the newly eloped and extremely happy couple!
