Yeah, it’s good to live in LA. And this is the engagement session that shows off just how awesome it is out here. We got lots of terrific shots from the gorgeous coastal hillsides to the Santa Monica beach, all in one afternoon. Rich had proposed to Erika at this lookout in the Pacific Palisades, so it was perfect to start off their engagement session. All three of us are big hikers, and I was excited one of my couples would be up for a challenge. I could not get over how adorable Erika looked in her outfit, and she hardly broke a sweat. After taking in the panoramic view of the Pacific, we descended to the beach just in time to catch the lovely dusk light. Erika brought along a ukulele Rich had given her. The two of them couldn’t be cuter together!
