It is always so exciting when I get to photograph couples that have a vision for their engagement photos and share apart of who they are with me! Venezia and Anthony are an adventurous couple who wanted to have their engagement shoot at one of their favorite hiking spots in Palos Verde… we toured the outskirts of the lush Portuguese bend reserve and ended with the ocean views of the nearby Del Cerro Park. After all the rain we have had in Southern California I was so excited to play in these green rolling hills covered in mustard flowers and with the ocean in the distance it made for such a romantic and striking backdrop for these two lovebirds. I can not wait to photograph their mountain top wedding in July! Here are some of my favorites from the day.
