Kat & Leo ~ Engaged

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA

I love engagement sessions! It's a great way for me to get to know my couple and for them to get to know me. I find out what makes them comfortable, what they like, what puts them at ease, etc.

Two days before Kat and Leo's engagement session, Kat e-mailed me and said she was a bit nervous. I would like to think I put her at ease because she did not seem nervous at all on the day of the session! Actually, the engagement session lasted almost three hours and I can't figure out where the time went!

Kat and Leo are awesome! I could talk to them for hours. Well, I guess we did do that! Leo is a complete natural in front of the camera. I think the camera has a magnet that draws Leo to it. In fact, he kept looking straight at it and Kat would remind him not to. I thought that was so cute!

I can't wait to photograph your wedding!!!

Here are some of my faves from the day:











Kat and Leo brought me a gift...not just any gift!!! They brought me some cheese rolls from Porto's Bakery! I am hooked!!! Seriously. As soon as I took the first bite I was in cheesy heaven!!! Thank you so much for introducing me to your favorite pastry! It's my favorite now, too! Thank you also for being so thoughtful!
Mmmmmmmmm....

What an adorable couple!
They are so cute together!
I like the one where they are playing together in the water under the pier. SO cute!

Well done. You did great! They look like you just watched them enjoy each other all day, without being aware of your camera. Well done. That takes talent.

I love the colors on the one with the rides in the background. I also like all the ones of them seating down.
