Sitting here watching the snow start to pickup, doing some California dreaming….here’s some favorites from our recent Los Angeles engagement photography session. We’re so excited about shooting Andy & Allison’s NH destination wedding this summer, but for something a bit different we flew out to Southern California to meet them and shoot their engagement session on the west coast. LA offers SO many options for amazing engagement photography locations, the same reason silverscreen and silent film era movie makers were drawn to Hollywood in the early 1900’s. Very glad we were able to take advantage of a number of them! Here are the places we shot at: Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice Beach with it’s colorful, modern wall murals, Malibu Creek State Park; gorgeous, scenic park with the Santa Monica Mountains, beautiful live oaks and amazing light (kept our eyes peeled for mountain lions!), this Park has been the location for many a Hollywood movie and tv production, including MASH, Planet of The Apes, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid and Tarzan, to name a few. Finally, we ended up at El Matador Beach State Park with its rocky arches. It was a stunning backdrop at sunset to finish out our Southern California engagement shoot. California is one of our favorite places to work and play. We know there are many great Los Angeles wedding photographers to choose from, but if you feel a connection to our photography, please consider adding Birch Blaze Studios to your short list. Drop us a line, let’s talk. We’ll even wave travel charges for certain packages. We had a great time working with Andy & Allison in and around Venice Beach & Malibu, can’t wait for their wedding, August of 2017!
