Eric + Laurisa’s Engagement Shoot

Eric + Laurisa Engagement Session

Eric and Laurisa were on vacation when I met them. They were a long way from their comfortable home in Canada, staying in a hostel in the Gaslamp District when not out exploring San Diego. What’s more, they had just gotten engaged a couple days prior, and were eager to get some engagement shots. After chatting with them for a spell, we decided Ocean Beach would be the perfect place for a shoot.

Their time schedule was rather tight, and wanted to have their images within a couple of days before they flew off to Los Angeles; their next stop . I was only too happy to oblige; while we nibbled on an appetizer platter I sorted through their images, giving them a hand full of images to show off to their friends back home, and brag about their tans in the process.

Congratulations Eric and Laurisa, I wish you the best, and a lifetime of happy adventures together.

When Karla told me I’d be shooting their theme’d engagement shoot, I had no idea what I was in for. This triple location shoot meant triple the fun, and since I’ve known Karla my entire adult life, it made capturing the couple’s ideas that much easer. Here are a couple of teaser shots to feed your curiosity.

Venice Beach provided the perfect location for Adam and Desiree’s engagement shoot last weekend. We spent the afternoon shooting away, and as the sun began to set, the sky exploded with color, giving the couple a spectacular sunset to cap off the session.

I met Adam and Desiree yesterday at Venice Beach for a spectacular engagement shoot. We all had a great time spending the late afternoon and evening at the beach, getting our feet wet, and getting some great images to boot. Here is a little teaser, there will be more to come soon, so “don’t change that dial.”

Chris & Tanya’s Engagement Session

A Walk on the Beach II

Chris and Tanya will be getting married on January 7th this year, and getting together to do the engagement shoot was a bit of a challenge since the couple live in North Carolina. We got together December 29th, and prayed that the weather would hold and be pleasant at Huntington Beach Pier. Just as we were getting started, a fog bank rolled in, making for a unique and exciting engagement session.

Rinehart & Jessica’s Engagement Shoot

E-shoot_web-1

Last weekend I cruised down to San Juan Capistrano to shoot Rinehart and Jessica’s engagement session. The sky was just about ready to unload it’s bounty of rain the entire 2 1/2 hour drive there, so on the way, I began thinking of creative ways to use the weather to my advantage. When we finally met, the rain was coming down steadily, and would intermittently stop, then start again. Secretly, I was hoping it would rain, mostly because I love a good challenge, and shooting in these conditions was just that. In Southern California we don’t get too much rain, so when it happens, I’m always eager to be out in it. Here now, is the engagement session, in pictures.
