Cheryl & Ernesto are getting married in April. Their engagement session was back in September. The sunlight cast a beautiful warm glow on everything. I photographed at this location before although I was not aware that there was a trail from the bluff to the beach. Ernesto proposed to Cheryl at this beach and wanted to capture memories of the spot. We reached the beach just in time for a gorgeous sunset. It was such a romantic time of day to revisit the location they were engaged and now they have lasting memories of it. I look forward to photographing your wedding in the new year.
I don't second shoot as often as I'd like to, yet I dig being a second shooter. Thanks to Miranda Mirsec who asked for me to assist her on a beautiful wedding next to the beach. I was able to experiment a bit more than I could or would as the main photographer. The pressure is lifted, making the experience that much more pleasurable. We shot this wedding in September and I'm just getting around to sharing some of my favorites. That was fun, I hope we get the opportunity to work together on future assignments.
Rancho Palos Verdes bluff offers such amazing views, the landscape is picture perfect. Add a young, sweet couple in love and it's a haven for romantic engagement photos. Kristen works at Terranea so we didn't have to worry explaining why we didn't have a photographers permit. It was so sweet to see how attentive Ryan was to Kristen. For the most part, men seem to be along for the ride to please their loved one's desire for engagement photos. Chalk this session up to a wonderful day spent along our beautiful coastline and watching the sunset cast it's beautiful glow on everything.
Trying different locations for portrait sessions is always exciting. Couples often times have a favorite spot in mind such as where they got engaged but I like to suggest locations when I can. I mentioned Union Station to Stephanie & Jose and they were on the same track. Stephanie is very familiar with Union Station since she takes the train to work. The stations interior decor and lighting is stunning. Add a beautiful couple to the mix and the word sexy comes to mind. It's easy to get lost and pass time. As we began our journey at the bar for a relaxing potion, we eventually strolled and ended up outdoors at the north end. Our intent was to catch the sunset at Olvera street but time got away. Olvera street is lit so beautifully at night so we looked for romantic lit areas to compliment their more casual attire and time of day. This was such a fun session, thank you guys for being such great sports. I realy enjoyed haning out with you and can't wait to photograph your wedding in June.
