I got a phone call last week from one of my family clients asking if I photograph Engagements, and I said sure! I’m more in the mitzvah market, but it’s always a good time to capture the origins of that future family and the love story where it begins! Yossi lives in LA, and was going to be visiting Hollywood to surprise and propose to his girlfriend, Ellie, and wanted to capture her reaction (hint: guys looking to propose, this is an excellent idea!). We spent the week strategizing about the most photogenic and semi-private beach location at the most optimal time of day for the candlelit look he was going for, and earlier this evening, he asked her to marry him, and she said yes! They absolutely radiated love and joy, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness!
I love meeting new clients who contact me because they’ve seen and loved another family’s session. I enjoy that they’re familiar with my work and I also enjoy the challenge of making their session equally lovable, and unique. These three made my job pretty easy. I just asked them to enjoy each other as we explored at the beach. They snuggled, tickled, laughed, and played with their sweet and happy boy. They connected, and I captured it all. I love that lifestyle photography allows me to capture moments and feelings, and not just a snapshot of how you all look smiling directly at my camera. And some of these pics, boy do they give me the feels!!
I love their bright colors and sunset lighting to match at the beach. We had low tide and calm waters, which made for some fun seaside photos towards the end of our shoot.
