Paradise Cove Beach engagement session photos:

I first met newly engaged couple, Lilly and Steve, at my studio in Downtown Long Beach about a year before their wedding day was planned. They were getting married in May 2015, but wanted to have an e-session in some of their favorite local hangout spots around Los Angeles beforehand. With great chemistry and absolute naturals in front of the camera, it was a real pleasure capturing these Paradise Cove Beach engagement session photos.

Venice Canals engagement session photos:

Lilly and Steve wanted a really relaxed ambiance for their e-session, so we headed first to the residential area of Venice Canals – one of my favorite locations for engagement session photography in Los Angeles. The leafy green walkways and arched bridges provide a tranquil setting, and I captured intimate embraces and kisses between the couple as they explored the area.

Paradise Cove Beach engagement session photos:

From Venice Canals we made the half hour drive over to Paradise Cove Beach in Malibu, where Lilly and Steve also like to spend their free time. It was a late afternoon in Fall, and although a little chilly, the beach was really quiet and we almost had it all to ourselves. The couple had changed from their semi-formal attire into something more relaxed, with the blue hues they selected working perfectly with the ocean backdrop

We took advantage of the atmospheric sunset lighting to capture these Paradise Cove Beach engagement session photos, with Lilly and Steve keeping each other warm on the sands. There was a rustic wooden pier which we utilized in some of the photos, before ending the shoot with some off-camera flash images in the post-sunset moments.

Paradise Cove engagement session photos:

Lilly and Steve are planning their upcoming wedding celebration at Saint Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church in Westlake Village and the Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo, and I can’t wait to reconnect with this easy going and wonderful couple then.
