How wonderful is it to have a destination engagement session? Cynthia & Perry live in Toronto, Canada, but “love the California lifystyle,” they told me over the phone. They planned to travel along Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and San Diego coastlines, and wanted to have their engagement photographs taken here. “There are basically three places in all of Toronto that are good for photographs, and everyone does their e-session there,” Perry told me. “We want something different.”
We began their session at their hotel in Hollywood, then moved out to the Santa Monica pier and beach. I think Cynthia and Perry were hoping for warmer weather than we’re currently having, but we had a great time nonetheless!
I especially love shooting during the fall and winter, and we’re especially lucky here in the northern hemisphere. Since the sun never quite goes directly overhead, we have lovely sidelight and great open shade to work with–even at noon. I love the way Cynthia’s and Perry’s photographs turned out!
Congratulations, you two!
