Los Angeles Engagement | Natalie & Michael

I was so excited that I could be in Los Angeles at just the right time in order to do Natalie and Michael’s engagement shoot! I am shooting their wedding in LA in June (I cannot wait!!!) and she said she would love for me to do their engagement pictures as well but knew that was a far reach. Well luckily enough, my husband and I happened to be doing a road trip this summer through California, so it worked out perfectly!!

Natalie and I have know each other for over five years now!! We met at church and because quick friends. I was so sad when she moved to LA but I am so proud of all that she has done for herself there and so happy that she met the man of her dreams! It was so great to catch up with her and to meet Michael.

Natalie picked three amazing locations for their engagement shoot! First was UCLA. This is where Michael went to school and the campus is so stunning! I loved it. It felt so “California” and I loved that since California will always be home to me. The light there was so amazing!!  Next we headed to Santa Monica for some pictures on the beach. This was my first time shooting on the beach and it was intimidating but so worth it! Last we went to the LACMA Lights. They were so stunning! We took our time here, taking pictures just before sunset, right after sunset and once it had gotten dark. I couldn’t get over how pretty it was! You can’t tell but there were SO MANY PEOPLE there. Natalie called me a wizard for somehow not capturing them in the pictures. You just have to make it work!

I am so excited for these two! Their wedding in June is going to be so much fun and I am so excited to be a part of it!!
