A few weeks ago my Facebook status read: send my stuff to Santa Monica. People thought I was kidding…I really wasn’t. I LOVE LA! I know, I’ve always been an NYC, London kind of girl who never gave much time in the past few years to fun in the sun, but something changed on this trip – there was something more going on, an energy that just sang to me, charged my batteries and had me clawing for creativity. So I did what any good photographer in the city of stars would do – I put out a casting call. Jenn and David were my first Californian couple, and I have to say, I’m kind of in love with these two. Talk about energy!!
Jenn is an absolutely cute-as-can-be fireball who, when she turns on the sultry, can melt the pavement right out from under you. She has it all going on: blond bombshell meets girl next door – basically she’s everything a guy could dream of. Enter David, one of the funniest guys I’ve met in a while! He has this way of sliding out wisecracks that put me totally at ease from the get go, but his secret talent is in getting Jenn to laugh. He adores her: it’s obvious. It’s like every time he makes her smile, or brings out a laugh he just lights up, like he won the biggest prize at the carnival – and on this occasion he certainly did! Who in the world shows up for their engagement shoot with a furry suit and a plan to be act as the top toy takeaway? JENN – that’s who!! (seriously, I love this girl!)
Jenn and David, I had such a great time with you guys! I only wish we could have gone out for cocktails and made a night of it afterwards, you are SO much fun, I love your energy. I wish you all the best in your life together which I know will be filled with love and laughter and definitly a constant stream of the unexpected! ~ Santa Monica engagement photos by Acken Studios.
