Desiree + Rich = Engaged!

The first time I met Desiree and Rich I knew instantly that I wanted to be their wedding photographer. We talked about their upcoming wedding, sure, but we also talked about our love for the Real Houseives shows (yep, even Rich is a fan. Love him for that since Chris won’t watch with me), the way picnicking at the Hollywood Bowl before seeing a show there makes the entire experience that much better, and a myriad of other things that made me feel like I was talking to old friends and not clients.

I was looking forward to spending the afternoon with them for their engagement session. We enjoyed some fine Venice street art, took a stroll along Abbot Kinney, through the Venice Beach canals, and finally headed to the beach for a super lovely picnic as the sun set. Perfect day, perfect couple, perfect shoot!

Thanks for being so awesome, Desiree and Rich! I can’t wait for your wedding!

  • Ann B. - I love these photos! It’s great how you took all the little parts of their neighborhood and environment and worked it into the shoot. You captured a great mood. Did I see you on Gathering Guide? I saw a similar shoot there and I’m wondering if you’re the same person.
