One thing I often forget is that California is home to beautiful beaches, even the popular, tourist-trappy ones. I’m often reminded of this every time I have a couple come in from out of state to do a shoot here. In this case, Megan and Luis came from Arizona (Sedona). They had Luis’ son come along for a few family photos while we were at it. We did the engagement photography session at the Santa Monica Pier, which hosts a large beach, an iconic pier, and regularly beautiful sunsets.
Initially, we were only shooting there engagement session in Santa Monica. After seeing their photos, Megan and Luis invited to shoot their wedding in Arizona as well. It’s hard to describe, but it’s awesome watching a couple be in love with each other. Hopefully we can get a blog of their wedding in Sedona up soon so that you can witness the happiness and joy of their wedding day (in spite of inclement weather!), but until then here’s their engagement photos here in Sunny Southern California!
Then we went under the Santa Monica Pier for more photography.
Check out our blog for more examples of engagement photography in Santa Monica and Los Angeles. Wedding photography for this couple was done at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, Arizona.
