Neither Emily nor I are really what you would call “morning people.” We tend to trade the early morning hours for late-night editing marathons. But Celeste and Matt were all about a sunrise session in Santa Monica, so I rallied and drank lots of coffee and met them at the pier.
And you know what? Even though it was overcast (so much for the sunrise), we had an awesome shoot and managed to score a photo session without a ton of people milling around the pier and beach (which is almost impossible in the afternoon hours, especially in the summertime).
Without further ado, here are just a few of our faves from Celeste and Matt’s Santa Monica engagement photos (their amazing Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding is coming soon!).
