Meet Connie and Ryan! (Engagement)

Anytime I have to photograph in the same location twice I find it challenging because I’m naturally gravitated toward certain elements so going back to the same place again challenges me to try harder and think differently. But that’s alright I love challenges! This was photographed at the beautiful Santa Monica Pier. The first time photographing here was with Michelle and Brian
This is Connie and Ryan, I’ve known them for a couple years now but it wasn’t until this day where I really really got to know them and learned things that I’m flattered to have them be comfortable enough to share with me. I love good conversations and good stories. I love being inspired. I love being moved. And I had a little bit of all of those that day. It was very and truly incredible.
After our shoot we had some good ol grub at Bubba Gump where I chowed down on a Shrimp po’ boy and they chomped down on some ..actually I’m not sure what they had. I was too busy consuming my sandwich. 🙂 When I’m hungry, I don’t talk very much, all I do is stare at my own food.
Anyways, check out these engagement photos!

    I’m not sure how you do it Erich- but with each post [written description & photographs] you totally surprise me, make me laugh, and show me something I’ve never seen before. Excellent stuff.

      Thank you so much Tami! That means so much to mean! I went to your blog and I wish I had photographed your wedding in Hawaii 🙂 Darn, oh well! Your wedding photos (from your blog) look amazing!!

    Erich, we are so thrilled with our engagement pictures. We had such a good time getting to hang out with you, and being able to be included in your art is an added privilege. Your easy-going nature made the process feel laid-back and fun for us both. You have a very gifted eye, and somehow manage to capture the beauty of the setting and the individualism of every couple you photograph. We’re blessed to call you a friend and to have you record this time in our relationship.
    Blessings,
    Ryan and Connie
