It has been a long time coming for these two love birds to tie the knot! Darelene and Ted have shared one epic adventure after another prior to their engagement photography session and now they are prepared to take their chapter to another level. With eight years in the making, these two had a great history together from traveling the globe, let loose at music festivals, and indulge in life in general. Through the highs and lows, Darlene and Ted managed to build their relationship stronger through every experience.
There is always a soft spot in my heart when I hear stories of couples’s adventures together and how they have met; sweet stuff that can give you cavities. In this case. Allison and Jimmy have been a pair for about a decade before finally getting hitched. Imagine all the awesome adventures these two have experienced prior to entering the next chapter of their lives. One of their favorite past time is camping and snowboarding. What better way to have a meaningful engagement photography session than to combine the stuff that they like into their photos, right?!
There comes a time when we all enter a new chapter in our lives, whether by ourselves or as a collective group of childhood friends. In this case, I can safely say that my friends and I have entered the wedding chapter. There are more friends posting about their engagement and wedding photos than usual, which means more parties to attend and wedding cakes to sample! For our next photo shoot, my dear friend from Boy Scouts was the next in line to get married and I had the honor of recording their special memories starting with this engagement photo session.

Our latest adventure took us to the beautiful city of Santa Monica. Stephanie and George took the day off to not only photograph their engagement session, but also to enjoy a breath of fresh air at the beach. Hitting two birds with one stone is always a good way to go! Life is too short, hit as many birds as you can (not literally). We started our engagement photo session at 3rd St. Promenade, which is about two short blocks away from Santa Monica Pier. Initially, we were supposed to photograph at Santa Monica Pier, but we later found out that heels were not the best footwear for walking on wooden planks. I now present, Stephanie and George’s engagement photo session at 3rd St. Promenade (Santa Monica).
…love it when people walk in the middle of your photograph, huh?
Coincidentally, there was an art show at the same time we photographed our engagement session. We hopped in front of one snazzy artwork to another. =)
You two definitely wore your love like heaven well!
Stephanie and George gave everyone a show when they danced with the street performers!
Stephanie wanted a balloon monkey. Whatever that balloon maker did, that was definitely not a monkey. Stephanie was still a good sport about it and wore that balloon around with style throughout their engagement session.
I hope everyone enjoyed these engagement portraits. For those who are looking for a fun filled day, I would suggest The Promenade and Santa Monica Pier! Stephanie and George will be getting married this October in Langham Hotel in Pasadena.
