Kali & Sean are both from Minnesota but each spring they like to escape the unpredictable Midwest weather and visit beautiful Marina Del Rey in Southern California to visit family and soak up the sunshine! They have years’ worth of memories in Marina Del Rey and they thought it would be the perfect place for their engagement photos (and I couldn’t agree more).
How awesome that we got to take their engagement photos in California and their wedding photos will be in Minnesota next summer? It’s the best of both worlds! And not only were their engagement photos taken in California but they were taken in a place that means a lot to both of them. A location with special meaning wins every time!
We kicked off the session with beach cruisers and strolling through the beach side neighborhoods in Marina Del Rey. These two were total pros on the cruisers, pulling off moves I’m fairly certain would land me on my face!
Just a mile down the road we walked through the beautiful Venice Canals, they are man made canals meant to mimic the canals of Venice Italy. I could have spent the whole day photographing here, it’s absolutely incredible!
We wrapped up the evening at the beach and we practically had it all to ourselves! It was one of those weird days in SoCal where the marine layer hangs over the coast all day but honestly I absolutely loved it. While we didn’t have the quintessential Southern California sunshine, we had something far more unique and I’m crazy about the photos we got!
I still can’t believe how much we were able to pack into just one session, you have no idea how hard it was to narrow it down for this post!
Kali & Sean, thanks for the best evening!! You are so natural and comfortable together, a testament to your relationship! I can’t wait for next summer, your wedding is going to be one for the record book!
