I had such a great time with Charlene and Kevin during their engagement shoot. We met up at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica which is just a DREAM to shoot at. While not grand in size, the Viceroy has great little “pockets” to shoot in. I loved it so much that I think I want my home to look exactly like their lobby!

Charlene and Kevin were so cute together and were great little models :-) They make such a cute couple and I’m soooo looking forward to their wedding in November!

Here are some of my fav’s from the shoot..have a great weekend everyone!





Love this one :-)
