So, you know that thing where you show up to a venue thinking that you have shot there before because the name is super familiar, and then you get there and realize that just about everything looks totally different than you expected, and then someone tells you that the venue went through a massive remodel, but they think it happened a while back, so you photograph the venue all day and leave without ever actually figuring out whether you have photographed that venue before? Oh… Not a common experience? Yeah… we wouldn’t know anything about that either…Luckily we love shooting at new places either way!

Anywho! Alanna + David’s Palos Verdes Golf Club wedding was pretty great. We got to do a lot of our favorite things: hang out with an awesomely sweet couple and their friends and families (obviously!), do a night photo with Alanna + David and a rad vintage Rolls Royce, find and photograph Alanna + David in beautiful area at the venue that we had never seen anyone else shoot before, see a beautiful ceremony and toasts filled with tears and laughter, and so much more! It was an all-around great day. Check it out!

    Susan parks - The most perfect pics ever!ReplyCancel

We love Southern California in the spring time! Especially when we capture that very short sweet spot where we get a little rain and our local national parks come to life. We have some absolutely stunning oak groves not too far from us and they were the perfect option for Lisa + Kyle’s engagement session! Lisa wanted that gorgeous romantic and glowy look the area is just right for. We also love that they wanted to do a few quick photos with Lisa in her workout attire (she works in fitness) and Kyle sporting some business casual (he works in finance), super fun and cute! A great way to incorporate a little bit more about who they are.  We had a rough time narrowing down images from this engagement so we hope you enjoy!

If you know us, you probably know that we are a little too obsessed with our dog. Really, we are obsessed with dogs in general. We are the people who are likely to stare at your dog from across the park wondering what breed it is, talking about how cute it is, and joking about how we want to steal it. We don’t know our most of our neighbors’ names, but we know the names of most of their dogs. Yeah… we are those people.

So you can imagine how excited we are when couples want to bring their dog to part of their engagement session! We had the pleasure of meeting Riley and her humans, Alix + Anthony, for coffee and had a blast talking to them about their wedding, their pup, our shared love for traveling etc. When we got to their engagement it was like meeting up with some friends to explore Santa Monica. We had a ton of fun and made some beautiful photos of these three lovelies at the same time. Special shout out to Joe for his mad Simba style dog holding skills for the last photo. Enjoy!
