Long Beach Engagement Photography // I have a confession, actually I have two confessions. First, I am currently sitting in Starbucks drinking my tall green tea and laughing out loud. It’s incredibly embarrassing. I’m that person. With my headphones in listening to something no one else can hear and laughing out loud. If I’m being honest though that’s just making me laugh harder. That first confession brings me to my second confession: I had such big plans to blog during these first slow weeks of the year. The first 3 months of the year I’ve only had one wedding a month so I’ve had *plenty* of time to be a good blogger. Instead I spent these first 3 months of the year becoming addicted to Podcasts. Do you know how hard it is to write a blog post while you’re listening to someone talk? It’s real hard. So I’ve blogged exactly 2 times this year. I’m shaking my head at myself.
So be proud of me, I’m sitting in Starbucks, listening to a podcast and writing a blog. This is a big deal, guys.
I’m so excited to share Cydne & Ryan’s Long Beach engagement photography session with you! Downtown Long Beach is one of my favorite places to shoot. It has all the perks of Downtown LA without having to sit in traffic for 100 hours to get downtown. Cydne is a videographer and she & Ryan recently got engaged at home in Utah and they were traveling to Southern California to celebrate with Ryan’s family. They reached out to me about doing an engagement session while they were enjoying some SoCal sunshine. I’m so glad they did!
In addition to being guilty of podcast addiction I’m also guilty of not appreciating where I live. So when I get to show out-of-towners a little piece of the beauty of Southern California it makes me happy. If you’re coming to LA and you’re interested in a shoot I’m happy to show you around. 😉
And, for anyone who’s interested: the Podcast that started it all for me was RHAP [yes, I’m that nerdy about Survivor.] My new favorites are My Favorite Murder [for the true crime obsessed. Start with episode 18!] and Armchair Expert [because Dax Shepard is amazing]. Let me know your favorites in the comments!
