ben + sabine: all smiles in all the places: venice beach, canals + abbott kinney engagement session

Weddings & Engagement
March 25, 2017

Where to start with these two…

I loved our meeting and the zest of life and energy they both have. We laughed. ALOT.

They chose awesome areas for their engagement session in the Venice area. We started by the ocean, naturally, for sunrise and then continued through some awesome beachside homes, unto the Venice canals and eventually ended up on the famous Abbott Kinney street!

It was fun to play with colors + angles + urban landscapes.

Ben + Sabine were magic together.

Let me show you…

Shot mostly on Lilly (#lillytheleica) with a 24mm + 50mm Summilux f/1.4


I shoot engagements, destination weddings + elopements in Venice, California + all over the world.

Roses in Red + I Do’s in the Vineyard: a Temecula Wedding
This bride and I connected right away, not just because her dress was made from french silk or because she chose to get married at a vineyard with copious amounts of red wine. She had very specific ideas and visions for her day, she is a bit of planner, a bit of a perfectionist and a heart for of kindness. She married her best friend in Temecula at the South Coast Winery in November, which in Southern California means a balmy high of 79. Her details were classy and elegant. Lush reds and golds where intertwined with the green vineyard surroundings for a rich palette. I utilized the sunny day in portraits and in bridal party photos. My f ...
