This Manhattan Beach engagement session has to be one of our favourites of all time.  We had a free weekend in Los Angeles and were looking for a couple to photograph.  Elizabeth and Mark answered our call, although they warned us they had very little experience in front of the camera 🙂

      We met up with them at their beach home, and got to know them a little over a glass of wine.  The setting was perfect – you could hear the waves roll in through the windows.  The wind blew that warm summer air throughout their sweet little home.

      Starting engagement sessions at home is always a good idea.  If you’re a little shy, or are unsure what to do in front of the camera, starting in a setting you’re familiar with can help break a bit of the ice.  It’s also so much more personal.  Looking back on these photos, you’ll connect with the environment, perhaps it was your first home together as couple and you’ll always cherish the memories of being there together.

      We then hit the beach for sunset, and had these two roll around in the waves.  We love couples that forget the camera is on them, and focus on creating beautiful memories together.  Their Manhattan Beach engagement session is sure to be a favourite of ours for years to come.
