Santa Monica Engagement

Santa Monica Engagement: Joe + Christina

This engagement shoot is all a propos of the story between two very young people very in love. We are delighted to share our photo shoot with Joe and Christina – walking hand in hand and the stories they are living in.

We have no excuse to visit the beach and today’s fabulous session takes us to the classic and golden sand of Santa Monica Pier Beach.  The shoot has such a hip vibe with the peaceful sandy setting of the ocean views. The enormous sun sinking into the Pacific, and we got much better than this because of our sweet and loving couple. It is not about all the pretty details, but the pure and true love that our couple wanted- to grow old together. The light, the soft breeze and the love makes this engagement shoot one of the calmest and dreamy set of image we are lucky to capture.

We had to move around quiet quickly, which was not an issue as Joe and Christina were so relaxed and came prepared to be amorous with each other! As the sun lowered in the sky, our team was able to document beautifully tender moments between our couple. With the majestic views of the Griffith Observatory as their backdrop, this incredible couple posed for an effortlessly chic shoot. Our spirits were not dampened. This kind of shoot is the emphasis of an engagement session which is beautifully relaxed.

This atmospheric engagement shoot in that beautiful evening told us their love story. They embraced the session, both having fun larking and creating intimate moments in a scenic setting. It is pretty fitting that our couple is sun, candid, romantic and beautiful. Our team knew that they would be very good fun and great to work with, so natural and fully enjoy each other’s company while we photograph them they are.

Thank you to Joe and Christina! It was a lovely evening. We really are looking forward to document your wedding. But for now, enjoy our photos and their love story.

Allan and Toni: Santa Monica Engagement Photpgrapher

From the start, Toni always knew what she wanted. For their engagement session and wedding theme, she was deadset on incorporating the "Filipiniana" theme. She also wanted to make their engagement session more personalized by using an operating room (where Nurse Toni met Surgery Technician Allan) and Santa Monica Pier where they had their first date. We had so much fun doing their engagement session. Here are few pictures to share! :)
