Manhattan Beach Engagement Photography LACMA | B & W

I remember taking a Sociology 101 course back in my college years and one of our assignments was to observe the interaction between people.  As I sat at the University Cafe, I couldn’t help but to notice all types of interactions:  groups of friends hanging out, study buddies exchanging notes, a lost student asking for directions or even an in-love couple sharing a romantic kiss.  As the assignment proceeds, I noticed that I am particularly interested in couples who are in love.  I find that there are some couples that I just love watching because they make everything seem so easy with their pure happiness and genuine laughter.  Brianna and Weston are that couple!!  I had the pleasure of spending a beautiful evening with them and there is no doubt that they are absolutely perfect for each other.  So read on for our day of engagement photography (LACMA and Manhattan Beach).

Starting at their home in Redondo Beach

Brianna put so much thought into the look that she wanted for her engagement pictures and chose perfect locations.  We started off at their beautiful home in Redondo Beach.  They love cuddling up with their two babies while watching football games.  Broncos and Bears… Yikes!!  Hmmm… I wonder how that goes when the two teams go against each other during the playoffs.   =)

From there, Brianna and Weston changed into a fun and play summer outfit for a strolling around in downtown Manhattan Beach.

I really love watching them.  While they become lost in the moment… I became lost in them!!

Manhattan Beach Pier Engagement Photography

Another outfit change to match the romantic sunset.

Wanna know what’s really funny??   Michael Phelps actually walked right into this picture, but I didn’t recognize him (with a baseball cap and sunglasses on) and so I cropped him out of the image when I took the picture.  I realized it soon after he walked passed me.   Oops!!  =)

Engagement Photography at LACMA

And last but not least, we ended their session at LACMA!! The light display there is one of the most popular tourist spots right now, but for a very good reason.
