Aleessa and Jason met at UCLA and it was only fitting to start their engagement session there. I’ve been wanting to shoot there for a while and was more than happy to accommodate their request to take their engagement pictures on campus. Unfortunately, there was an event going on which caught us a bit off guard but we were able to find other cool spots and make it happen. For the second half we went to Venice beach, toured the canals, and caught the sunset. It was as much fun as it sounds.
Engagement sessions are more than just photo shoots, they’re like dates. A date night for the bride and groom as they celebrate their engagement. A date between me and the couple as we get to know each other. Hanging out with Aleessa and Jason showed me what a great couple they were. We shared stories, laughed, and talked about everything. I know for sure we’ll have fun on our second date. I get to meet their families, party it up, have some cake, and capture their most beautiful moment together…. their wedding day. I can’t wait!
