Los Angeles Engagement Photos – {Jeff + Alex}

I was so excited when Jeff contacted me about his wedding. I had photographed his sisters wedding a few years prior and fell in love with the family! I was thrilled to meet Alex as well. They just mesh so well together. We shot their engagement session in areas they like to frequent near their LA home. It was fun, a new location for me, I had never been to Abbot Kinney or Santa Monica Pier! And of course their absolutely adorable Toby joined us for some photos. Isn’t he the cutest thing ever?!

Manhattan Beach Trash the Dress Session – {Ryan + Devin}

I thought these two were being a little ambitious – wanting to do a day after session the morning after their wedding! But they were rockstars, came fully prepared to jump in the ocean! We had a perfect morning, and even had a group of kids catch her bouquet!
