I love this story: One week before an upcoming trip to California I received a phone call from Ellyse. She was inquiring into my services for her upcoming wedding in Gloucester. She comes from the Boston North Shore area but lives in Los Angeles together with her fiancé Robert. During our talk we realized that we would be able to meet up in person and also do their engagement images during my trip to Ventura county. We eventually found a day for our get-together. They were traveling south back home to LA and wanted to meet earlier than my preferred time for the right lighting. Due to my duties it got later though, and after having gotten to know each other briefly we headed off for some portrait action. We went to Downtown Ventura and made use of the last rays of light from the winter sun hitting the streets. Then we jumped into our cars and drove to the close-by State Beach and its beautiful pier. The sun was about to set, and we spent some time on and around the pier for some really gorgeous images of these two love birds. What a fun and relaxed couple! We all were so glad that we were able to meet and create their engagement photos, something they didn't think was possible due the different locations. I'm already looking forward to document their wedding on Cape Ann next year.
