Abbot Kinney Engagement Session

Abbot Kinney engagement session photos:

I distinctly remember when N first contacted me about photographing her and B’s e-session, as I was just heading out camping when I got the call. She said that she had seen my work online and wanted to book me right away, not only for the e-session but also for their wedding. It was such an honor that they trusted me to be their photographer before even having met in person, and a real privilege to capture these Abbot Kinney engagement session photos.

Getty Center engagement session photos:

We met face-to-face for the first time at the Getty Center in West LA on the day of their scheduled engagement photo session. N and B wanted an urban-themed e-session, utilizing the modern architecture and city skyline as a backdrop. As an LA engagement photographer, I always love coming into this area, with so many opportunities to get creative with the strong lines and reflective surfaces.

We then stopped briefly in Abbot Kinney to stage some fun shots in front of the street art in its vibrant alleyways, then continued on to the quiet residential area of Venice Canals.

Venice Canals engagement session photos:

This is a great place for LA e-sessions, with lots of greenery and a relaxed, suburban vibe. We got creative with some black and white images and silhouette shots, with the newly engaged couple’s natural chemistry shining through.

Venice Beach engagement session photos:

Our final destination for the day was Venice Beach and we timed it to coincide with the atmospheric sunset lighting. I incorporated this beach-side neighborhood’s iconic palm trees, as well as some romantic shots of N and B walking arm-in-arm on the sands.

Abbot Kinney engagement session photos:

It was a real pleasure to be selected as the Abbot Kinney engagement session photographer for N and B and i’m looking forward to capturing their wedding this coming March at the Sunset Restaurant in Malibu.
