Yelena & Vince

Last Saturday I was out on the town in Santa Monica, enjoying my last full weekend off before wedding season, and my phone rings around 8:30. Even at a bar or out for the night, I will almost always answer my phone (if someone calls you these days it must be important!), and I end up chatting with the incredibly nice Yelena. She’s literally sitting there looking at my website and was wondering if I could shoot her engagement session with fiance Vince the next afternoon! Turns out, Yelena & Vince live in New York and were only in town together for another 48 hours and were hoping to chat about a little wedding photography and shoot their engagement photos at the same time. Well lucky for all of us Sunday afternoon was free, we met up at one of my favorite hotels in Santa Monica, Shutters on the Beach, and off we went! I had such a great time with these two and am so excited to shoot their wedding this summer down in gorgeous Palos Verdes, now let’s get to some photos :)
