Carolina & Rito: Redondo Beach Engagement Photographer


He saw her first, and after some convincing she finally agreed to go out with him. Their love began in a coffee shop, she ordered a White Chocolate Mocha he ordered a Hot Chocolate and their DIY wedding is going to revolve around those elements. I am SO excited! In just a little over a week Carolina and Rito will be married and I am SO excited to be a part of their wedding day. Yesterday I blogged the first part of their engagement session and today you’re going to see the second half! 😀 I’m so excited about these photos, I said yesterday their session is one of my favorite engagement sessions ever. It’s more than just the fun locations and the gorgeous light though, it’s them. The way they smile at each other and snuggle just a little closer.

The couples I get to work with this year are amazing. I am so blessed.

There may have been slight trespassing involved with these photos… oops.

By this point I’d told Carolina & Rito we were done with this location and we should head back to the car… I only made them stop like 4 more spots before we made it to the car. The light was just too good to me! ;]


Down the road from Riviera Village is Catalina Coffee Company, pretty much the cutest local coffee shop, and since Carolina and Rito’s love story started in a coffee shop, ending their engagement session in a coffee shop seemed like the perfect idea.


My favorite thing about these two is how they just ignore the camera and enjoy each other. Love it!

One of my favorites… but it’s so hard to pick just one from this session!!
