Santa Monica Engagement Session

Brian + Stephanie

Great food and beautiful sunset in this Santa Monica engagement session. Normally, spending the day with your loved one in picturesque Santa Monica is just considered as a good day. But for Brian and Stephanie, LA County’s majestic beachfront just became one of their favorite places on earth, thanks to their amazing Santa Monica engagement session. As a photographer who adores the great outdoors for its visual beauty and authenticity, Brian and Stephanie’s engagement shoot was a thrill for me. We started the shoot at Cha Cha Chicken Restaurant, an honest-to-goodness Caribbean restaurant in Santa Monica. The ambiance was delightful, the food was delectable. And the couple donned in casual, eye-catching get-up was a delight to shoot.

This particular Los Angeles engagement session brimmed with the double C – cool and casual. A mirror of how cool and genuine Brian and Stephanie are. We walked around the city, the lovebirds soaking in the love and the fun brought by the prelude of their wedding, which will happen in the famous Tom Ham’s Lighthouse in San Diego, CA. I snapped a few photos of the lovebirds in front of the Santa Monica Library. We also took shots at an old Victorian house – aptly named Victorian – near the library. Along the way, we passed by these very cool walls decorated with colorful graffiti. Brian and Stephanie had fun posing, hugging, and kissing with these large wall scribbles as their awesome backdrops. Our engagement photo session concluded at possibly the most romantic place in Santa Monica – by the beach. Blessed with a beautiful sunset that day, the two had a blast just being what they are – a couple happy and in love. With the beach and the sunset as their gorgeous background, and the happiness they effortlessly exude, our Santa Monica engagement session was a success.

I can’t wait for their love story to continue. Our next journey together: me, as a Tom Ham’s Lighthouse wedding photographer, and Brian and Stephanie as husband and wife.
