It’s engagement season and Carolyn & Chris are happily engaged! Woohoo!! I’ve often said Fall is my favorite time of the year but Christmas is the best time of the year for me and I just want to say that it goes so well with happily engaged couples. Like a child at Disneyland with a fast pass in hand is how I feel about photographing engagement sessions this time of year! Carolyn is from Texas while Chris is from Pennsylvania, they shared with me that when they had just moved to Southern California Manhattan Beach was that place that took their breath away, with the golden sunsets, the laid-back local beach community and those mountains in the distance, it became a special place for them and the reason why they chose to have their session done here. Now all of the beaches in Southern California are of course breathtaking, but some are just little more special if you now what I mean, Manhattan Beach is that special beach. Congratulations Carolyn & Chris, so looking forward to your wedding at the Oviatt Penthouse in Downtown LA.
