Neha + Amit - Santa Monica Beach Couples Shoot

Gloomy morning at the beach + cutie couple + perfect outfits = THIS.

This was Neha and Amit's first shoot together, but they killed every single shot and were just so fun to shoot with!! I included like a million photos here because I have so many favorites. Scroll down to see!

Bianca + Anthony - Ascot Hills Sunset Shoot

If you look up "best sunset spots in LA" Ascot Hills will almost always be a top recommendation in whatever article you click on -- and for good reason!! There are a couple different trails you can take to get up to a higher point that will give you an awesome place to catch the sunset and an amazing view of downtown LA. Anthony and Bianca are such a sweet couple and I loved photographing them.

It's not unusual that a lot of guys really aren't into doing photoshoots and Anthony admitted that at first he wasn't excited but when we were finishing up he said "this was kind of fun". Probably one of my favorite things to hear haha. I always try to make things as easy-going and fun as possible and if you're worried about having a photoshoot where the photographer tells you to smile at them the whole time, just know that's not how it will be with me! (can't say I won't encourage a lot of PDA though ;) )

Mason + Miranda - Point Dume Proposal

Okay, so ANOTHER proposal story. I hope you guys like these because they're my favorite!! These two are from Minnesota and Mason surprised Miranda with tickets to Malibu the day before he planned to propose at this rad location. Obviously she didn't know about the proposal part, but she found out soon enough ;) 

I had never been to Point Dume before and I usually hate shooting in the middle of the day (sorry I love my golden hour) so I was a little nervous about finding a good spot that wasn't crowded and if the light was going to be too harsh BUT everything turned out pretty perfect in the end. I got there early to scope things out, decided this spot on the edge of the cliff would be awesome and Mason was down for the idea, so I just waited for them to show up! 

Once at the spot, Mason asked someone for a cell phone photo of the two of them and after a quick snap he got down on one knee and you know how the rest goes... (hint: she said YES). Scroll down to see the photos!
