Venice Canals Engagement Session

MEGAN & TIFFANY

Venice Canals engagement session photos:

Newly engaged couple, Tiffany and Megan, met online several years ago. When they came to my studio in Downtown Long Beach, they told me that from their first date at a restaurant in San Diego, they hit it off immediately. Tiffany proposed to Megan in San Francisco last year and they were busy making preparations for their wedding. They had booked me not only as the wedding photographer for their special day at the New Hall Mansion, but also to capture for their Venice Canals engagement session.

Abbot Kinney engagement session photos:

We started the e-session in the downtown area of Abbot Kinney, where there are plenty of colorful alleyways and graffitied walls that make for the perfect urban backdrop. They had both opted for casual attire, with jeans and jackets, and I captured a range of shots as they explored the streets of Abbott Kinney and went shopping in one of its bookshops.

Venice Canals engagement session photos:

After the Abbot Kinney engagement session, we then walked over a couple of blocks to the residential area of Venice Canals, with its leafy walkways and quaint bridges. This was a great opportunity to capture some intimate embraces and warm shots in the mid-afternoon sunshine, within the undeniably relaxed ambiance of Venice Canals.

Santa Monica Beach engagement session photos:

After a wardrobe change, we finished the day at Santa Monica Beach just as the sun was starting to set, beginning on top of the pier and later moving down to the sands. I captured some shots of Megan and Tiffany with Santa Monica’s iconic ferris wheel behind, as well as a few of them beneath the pier. The rich sunset lighting enabled us to get really creative, with silhouette shots and the use of off-camera flash.

Venice Canals engagement session photos:

Both Tiffany and Megan were really sweet and a lot of fun to work with, and they had such a wonderful natural chemistry. I’m really looking forward to seeing them again when they tie the knot this Fall and wish them all the best during their wedding day preparations.
