I’m glad we did this session even if it was a couple of weeks before their wedding. We even had their guestbook ready in time. “Teddy” was a wonderful addition to photos, he was always ready to please James and Dalene which I thought was so cute. It was my first time to do an engagement shoot at Santa Monica. Every time I see an engagement photo done there online, I always thought when is it gonna be my turn? I finally got my turn and I wasn’t disappointed. I didn’t expect the lighting on the rowboats to be tricky, but it was, and it was a sweet surprise.

This is my third try on LACMA, again my thoughts driving there is how am I gonna outdo my last one? I also went for a backlit look but this time I crossed the street and swung out my telephoto which allowed me to go for a compressed background and straighter lines. A slight change from my previous try, now I’m not sure which one is my favorite.

This coming two weeks will be dedicated to editing and processing 3 weddings, stay tuned!
