gabe & rachael: engaged! | engaged!
Gabe & Rachael make quite the stylish duo. Excellent taste in attire and in photo-shoot locations! Since they live in Santa Monica, Randy and I opted to do the shoot there. We always love the opportunity to shoot in places outside of Orange County, which is why we do very few of our shoots actually in the OC. Well Gabe & Rachael had the awesome idea of shooting at The Biltmore Hotel, a historic building built in the ’20s. It’s not every day we get the opportunity to shoot in a place like that! Fortunately, Rachael had called ahead to get permission to shoot there. Even so, we were nearly kicked out. Though they let us stay, we were scolded on several occasions and every guard was giving us the stink eye, but it was worth it! We got some AWESOME shots!
After The Biltmore, we went down to the Santa Monica pier for a stroll and picnic. The sunshine and beach were a nice compliment to the architecture of the hotel. So thank you Gabe & Rachael for choosing awesome locations! Yet another example of why we let clients choose places that they enjoy and mean something to them. We get to see so many cool places and every shoot is brand spankin’ new. Can’t wait for Gabe & Rachael’s wedding in November! Hope everyone enjoys these pics. Let us know what you think with a comment!
There were too many cool little moments during the picnic. I just had to include them all in the form of a collage :)
And Happy October, everybody!
