As a California wedding and couples photographer with a passion for candid, film, and documentary-style photographs, every session holds a unique charm and tells a captivating story. Recently, I had the pleasure of capturing the love and vibrant energy of Bekah and Grayston during their couple photography session in Long Beach! The location, the couple's dynamic, and the perfect weather all came together to create an unforgettable experience!
An Infamous Love Story
Anyone who follows Bekah knows the infamous story! Bekah and Grayston's met after Bekah got off the show, The Bachelor! Bekah's journey captured the hearts of viewers, and her unique personality left a lasting impression. Their relationship blossomed fast and their connection was evident as soon as we began the session!
The Perfect Day in April
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for Bekah and Grayston's couple photography session! Taking place in April, the clear sunny skies provided a beautiful backdrop against which truly captured the essence of Bekah and Grayston's love. The natural light illuminated their chemistry and added an extra touch of magic to the photographs!
Creative Expression and Downtown LA Vibes
For this session, we wanted to infuse the shoot with a vibrant, urban feel that resonated with the couple's personality. We decided to shoot on top of Grayston's gym, which exuded a Downtown LA ambiance. The athletic environment with the love and connection between Bekah and Grayston created a visually striking narrative.
Capturing the Essence of Their Love
Working with Bekah and Grayston was so fun!! Their easygoing nature and chill demeanor made the entire experience feel like a fun hangout session with friends. As we explored different locations and played with bright colors and the harsh sun, their chemistry and authenticity shone through. I knew we were capturing something truly special the entire time and was beyond excited to see the results!
A Colorful Approach and Harsher Light
Bekah had a clear vision for their session. She desired something more than just iPhone photos to use for their announcement, and together, we crafted a concept that perfectly embodied their vibe. Embracing vibrant colors and the challenge of harsher lighting conditions, we captured authentic moments that radiated joy, love, and spontaneity. The result was a collection of photographs that truly reflected the couple's unique dynamic!
Candid Film Photography
Bekah and Grayston's Long Beach couples session was a testament to the power of love, connection, and creative expression. From their unforgettable love story to the urban vibes and perfect weather, every element came together seamlessly. I'm grateful for the opportunity to capture their unique energy and provide them with cherished memories to commemorate this special time in their lives!
I like to take a documentary-style approach, letting things unfold naturally and capturing them in all of their perfect imperfection.
My philosophy has been and always will be serving the couple in every way that I can! I'm a big believer that you should be in love with the experience in front of my camera just as much as you love your gallery at the end of it all. I work on a hybrid of film and digital, giving you all the nostalgia and memories bursting out of every single photograph.
I find beauty in the mundane, normal, small moments that others seem to miss, which makes what I do the epitome of my dream job.
