Venice Beach Engagement Shoot: Aislinn & Pete

When people think Venice Beach, they tend to think of street vendors, performers on the sidewalk, and graffiti. But just a little south near Venice Beach Boardwalk, there's a gorgeous, far less-crowded beach perfect for photos. Aislinn and Pete were such a fun couple and with their playful attitude really made for a great session.

We started off on the pier, and for once the wind was actually working in my favor. It swept up her hair perfectly for this shot.

I loved the look of this mountainous sand dune next to the pier, so I asked them to hop up on there. These ended up being some of my favorite shots of the day.

I've always loved a good under-the-pier shot. I don't really know why they're so romantic and appealing, but I made sure to stop under the Venice Boardwalk to get a few while we were there.

It's a little crazy to me that I live in a place where this is what winter looks like. It was sunny and warm all day for this shoot. (I even thought I should have considered wearing shorts!)

This moment was really perfect. The sun was in the right spot, there were a few light clouds in the distance, and you could see sailboats on the horizon. Everything just came together.

This is one of those great reasons to wear comfortable clothes and be ready to try strange poses during a photo session. Every once and a while your photographer is going to ask you to sit on a rock or climb something or lay in the grass. These two were so easygoing and there to have a good time, so every pose worked flawlessly.

This is one of my all-time favorite photos. The lighting and the wind were perfect and you can just feel something special between these two here.
