Kristin + Christopher are the kind of couple you start chatting with and immediately feel like you’ve known for a long time. Still, they were not thrilled about being in front of my camera for an intimate engagement shoot. I wanted to put them at ease, so we decided to have a casual at-home engagement session in their stunning Manhattan Beach loft. Sometimes the best location for an engagement shoot is one where the couple feels most at home; literally, at their home. We chatted over homemade lattes, listened to some records, laughed a lot, and took some photos.
