For every engagement shoot I do, I really really really try to make them unique, creative, fun, and contain at least one shot I have never done before. I definitely think I hit all those points in this shoot, with Groupon-shopaholic Brian and rock-climbing-guru Julie.  I was ecstatic,like eye-bulged-and-jumping-up-and-down excited, when I found out that they would have access to a yacht in Long Beach Harbor! I’ve done quite a few engagement shoots by now, so any time I get a cool new location I get pretty excited.

This shoot lasted a little longer than usual for a few reasons. One, Brian and Julie are pretty amazing people. Two, we had a lot of cool locations. Three, I forgot to set my watch an hour back so I thought it was a lot earlier than it was.  But at the end we ended the shoot at a nice sit down lunch at Island’s (the burger joint) where I thoroughly indulged in a mouth-watering Hawaiian burger complete with pineapple slices. Yummmmmm!!! Thank you guys! Congratulations!!! and ENJOY!

    With every shoot you do- I think to myself “there is no way he can top that”. And then you smash it. Amazingly *unique* shots. I’m in love with each and every one of them.
