It was a perfect day in Palos Verdes where I met Michelle & Morad for their engagement session. We had already rescheduled twice due to crazy weather over the last couple of weeks, so it was a beautiful afternoon for a photo session. I love the natural beauty of the settings Michelle chose. She had wanted something close to beach, but not on the beach, so I wanted to focus on the views and some of the different coastal features. I found a few treasure spots (the yellow flower field and the “lumpy grass” as Michelle and I called it) where we really just played off of the light and what was happening with the setting. There was something in these settings that just seemed to call out, that begged to be expressed. Maybe the best way to explain would be to say that the moments make the images, not the photographer, and so it’s just a matter of being in the right place to capture it.
