Santa Monica Beach Engagement Photographer – Abby + Chris

Abby and Chris moved to LA a few years ago and love being so close to the ocean, so the Santa Monica beach was a personal setting for their sunrise engagement photos. It felt like we practically had the beach to ourselves that early, and I loved going under the pier where it was even more private. These two were so sweet and fun, I didn’t even mind getting a little soaked when I couldn’t outrun a wave at the end of our session!

Congrats on your engagement, Abby and Chris!
