One thing that Tanya and I love is when couple's choose locations for their engagement sessions that are really special to them. Carey and David are getting married at the Beach Club in Malibu but for their engagement session they wanted to show off their love for Los Angeles with a more urban photo shoot.
We met over in Venice Beach and had fun shooting with all of the textures and personalities of the boardwalk. Then Carey and David pulled out their beach cruiser bikes and we rode around on the bike path. All was well until mid-photo shoot, sitting precariously, camera in face, a very angry seagull dropped a tater-tot directly on my head. I wasn't happy until I realized it was only a tater-tot...could be worse right? Nonetheless we persevered.
We decided to head over to Abbott Kinney in Venice and see if we could find the elusive food trucks that stop over there. Carey and David are food truck connoisseurs and they introduced us to the totally awesome world of mobile food. We hit the jackpot on Abbott Kinney - three trucks showed up so we had a bunch of food to choose from. Today it was the Nom Nom Truck, Baby's Baddass Burgers and our choice, Dogtown Dogs. It was a delicious way to end the shoot! If you live in LA, check out the food truck live location map!
