Laguna Beach Engagement Photography: Ben & Nadine

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ben and Nadine for their Laguna Beach engagement photography session recently. While we were there they told me the story of how they met: "I met the perfect person for you!" We've all heard it before. A helpful friend wants to introduce us to a friend of a friend. They tell us all about how perfect they are for us, they show us a picture and hopeful, we agree to meet them. And that's when Ben knew. The night they met he knew...

Seal Beach Portrait Session | Christopher and Brayden

We were supposed to meet up with Brayden and Christopher for a portrait session in Huntington Beach. We accidentally scheduled our shoot on a day that HB was hosting a huge event.

Luckily, in southern California we’re never more than a 15 minute drive from another pier, so we  relocated to Seal Beach. A last minute change of venue is always an added variable that can...
