Arvin took Marina to Manhattan beach for their first Valentine's date. How appropriate to capture their engagment portraits back in the spot when they were newly love birds. It was a bright, hot sunny day. We went to Starbucks to cool down and soon thereafter the sky became dark and Marina was freezing in her summer top. That didn't stop them from rolling up their jeans to play in the water. We started early enough to get a variety of shots in addition to the great beach shots.
My friend Eric lives in a very cool loft in downtown LB. The first time I visited I wanted to set up a photo session in the building. Eric and his girlfriend were great models as we strolled around the historic Walker building and surrounding areas. We stumbled upon this great brick wall and it couldn't have had a more relative and humorous ad.
