Doug and Claire’s Santa Monica engagement session
Get ready for some pretty pictures of some awesome people! We spent last weekend in LA to photograph Claire and Doug for their engagement session. We had so much fun! Claire and Doug met each other in when they were both going to law school in Chicago and now they are living in beautiful Los Angeles. We are super excited to be traveling to Chicago next year to photograph their wedding! We had a blast chasing around Montana Avenue and the neighborhood and cute shops before heading to a gorgeous hike where Doug proposed! We started at a favorite spot of Claire and Doug’s, an awesome place called Father’s Office (seriously, amazing burgers!!)
Claire! Those eyes! Isn’t she stunning?
We were so fortunate to get some AMAZING light that day, which was sandwiched between two very rainy, wet days. Glad we got to soak up some of that southern California sun!
LOVE these two photos, and it has nothing to do with the bright green wall in the background, haha!
After hanging around town, we took a quick drive to Paseo Miramar, a beautiful hiking trail overlooking Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean. So. Pretty. This location has extra special meaning, because its is one of Claire and Doug’s favorite hikes AND it is where they got engaged!
I love Claire in this one.
Check out this view, I mean, COME ON! It’s no wonder they like it so much!
The sun was setting fast, so we headed out to the beach to take some quick photos in front of the Santa Monica Pier. It was kind of perfect because we were able to get some amazing sunset photos!
Doug and Claire, we had soooooo much fun, and we are BEYOND excited to shoot your wedding in Chicago next year! Thanks for showing us some of your favorite spots!
