Ann and Mike – Engagement July 14, 2008

Filed under: Engagements — leeleeche @ 2:53 pm

Ann and Mike booked me for their wedding a while ago but I had not met them until Saturday. I was delighted to find them fun, easy going and gorgeous! This session was effortless for me. We had so much fun it didn’t even feel like I was working! I am really looking forward to their October wedding at my favorite Venue, La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes.

Here are some faves:

A little photo booth action. These two really had fun with it!

The sunset was amazing!

Thanks guys! I can’t wait for your wedding!!!

Lindsey and Jesse are a great couple. They are easy going, fun and gorgeous! I had a great time shooting these two!

We started out high above the Pepperdine campus, where Jesse goes to school

Lindsey goes to school in Texas and was visiting for spring break

We were shooting at a 911 memorial at the tippy top of Pepperdine, overlooking the Pacific, it was breathtaking

Next, we headed over to El Matador beach. A spot that Jesse suggested, it rocked!

I think this is my fave. I could not decide if I liked it better in color or the split tone

Sue and Jay both attended UCLA and it is also one of my favorite places to shoot. You can imagine how thrilled I was that they wanted to do their engagement pics there.

Barb, Chris, Hannah and Milo – Engagement/Family Portraits May 7, 2007

Filed under: Engagements — leeleeche @ 7:34 pm

This was one of the most exciting engagements for me to shoot because the bride to be is my big sister!!!

I am so happy for her, she found a great guy with a great daughter and they are very happy together. They are planning on getting married next spring, I am sure it will be a fabulous event.

We started out at my favorite engagement spot, Malaga Cove Plaza

We headed down to Manhattan Beach but the conditions were not ideal. It was really cold and windy but they still had fun with it

Afiya and Damian have a destination wedding planned for next May and wanted some pictures for their website. It was great working with them. They really had fun with the session and were really great sports even though the weather was less than ideal.

I love the light under the Manhattan Pier

Erika and Neal – Engagement March 19, 2007

Filed under: Engagements — leeleeche @ 6:26 pm

Erika and Neal are one of those couples that I liked instantly. As soon as I met them I was hoping to get the chance to work with them. They are very real and easy going. After shooting their engagement session on Saturday, I am really looking forward to their wedding in September.

We started at Malaga Cove Plaza which is fitting since they will be honeymooning at a place called Malaga

Say cheese Neal!

We headed down to Redondo Beach which is Neal’s old stomping ground. The weather was not ideal but it was perfect for drawing in the sand.

Erika mentioned that her objective for the session was to get some pictures where both of their eyes were open. I am hoping this one still gets her approval.
